Thanks!

Well things have been moving along with the purchase of our house here in California. It has been like a wild roller coaster ride. But before I go into any more details we just want to say Thanks for all the prayers and lifting our family up during this time. We have crossed so many hurdles and the prayers have really sustained us and have been a constant source of hope for our faith to lean on. Yesterday we signed the last of the paperwork for closing and paid our deposit so we are almost at the end. We will now be waiting for the bank to fund the money so we are not completely out of the woods yet so please if you feel lead to continue to pray for us over the next few days we could certainly still use prayer that the closing would finish with no more obstacles. The seller will be moving out this weekend and we should be able to move in next week.

The waiting now has been extremely difficult on the children as it appears to be a few more days till we can call somewhere home, but I am keeping them busy to keep their minds off of it even though it does not appear to be helping much hehhehe! So you probably want to know what it is you have been praying for and I have a picture to share an overhead view of the ranch. It is a modest house on 8 acres tucked away on the outskirts of San Diego in the mountains complete with a horse corral. For our family who has been renting and all we have gone through with renting for the last 4 years now since we left our house in New York it seems like a little slice of heaven on earth, and we can hardly believe that we will be able to call this home.

Thank you again for all your prayers it means so much to our family and hopefully next week we will be able to post some pictures of Home Sweet Home.


1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

  1. So glad for you all! Having your own place is so wonderful!
    I love your new blog! Isn't it fun having three columns? I don't know why I feel that way as I'm hardly ever on mine anymore! It's fun tinkering with it anyway.
