It has been a long, LONG time since my last past....about a month and a half, but I wanted to just check in with you to let you know that everything is fine! I'm in a busy season right now......we are attempting to buy our very first house!
Those of you who have gone through this process know that it is just that....a process! Lots of paperwork, meetings, reading documents, looking at houses online, looking at houses in person with the realtor, inspections, appraisals......it just goes on and on and there ain't no stoppin' until you sign on the dotted line. We are excited, and nervous, and cautiously optimistic all at once. I'm excited, but I'm not going to let myself be fully excited until the deal is done and the fat lady has sung.......
Bear with me, (and pray with me!), friends as we go through this. We are praying that things go smoothly and that there are no significant bumps in the road during this process. Truth be told, I think my husband and I are both a little more stressed and apprehensive about this than we'd like to admit! Whatever happens, this I know: Jehovah Jireh is my provider. He has always made provision for us, and he is faithful. This whole thing is currently a HUGE focus for our family and when the process is complete, I will resume more regular posting......I already have some things in the works! Barring any unforeseen complications, we should have keys in hand in a few weeks.
But, for now, I'd like to flip the script and ask YOU to share your stories with ME for a change! Any advice for first-time home buyers? Any funny stories from when you went through this? What's the one thing I need to know about owning a home? Please share! Really, you'd be doing me a favor.....giving me something else to think about!
I love you all so much. You can't imagine what it means to me to know that you take time out of your busy lives to read my words! One thing that continues to amaze me, is the fact that no matter how much time passes in between my posts, when I check my stats, there is always steady traffic on my site. To date, since I've started my blog, there has not been a single day where no one has visited my site. That means that not only are you guys reading my posts, you are sharing them...liking them....tweeting them....pinning them. You all are fantastic, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart! God bless you......now.....start hittin' me with your homeowner stories and advice!!!!
