The House

A lot has transpired since the last time I posted. Last Thursday, Anne and I left in the morning for Frisco, Texas on a house buying mission. As soon as we arrived at the airport, we picked up a rental car and headed off to find THE house for us. We met up with our realtor, Kim, and started looking at houses. We looked at probably a dozen on Thursday, and another dozen on Friday. On Thursday, the houses we looked at were mostly in the central area of Frisco, closest to the church. We liked that location, but none of the houses we saw felt like they were "the one." So, we decided to go ahead and look in the North Frisco area where there are newer subdivisions. The last house of the day was in a new neighborhood, had just recently been built, and was ready to move in. When we walked in, Anne said, "I like it!" She felt like this house could be home. We were done house shopping for the day, so we stopped by Hope Fellowship and hung out for a few minutes while their VBS program was finishing up. We were graciously hosted by Pastor John and Melissa. (Thanks Macy for letting us take over your room for a couple of days.) John even showed me my new office. They already have my name on the door! It made me feel good that they're getting prepared for me to arrive. I enjoyed seeing the staff there and saying hi, even though we only stayed for a few minutes. The next day, we concentrated solely on the North Frisco area and newer construction. After looking at all of those houses, we still came back to the one we had seen on Thursday night. When we looked at it again, we could envision our family living there. We kept questioning ourselves, because this house was the smallest one that we had looked at. But, the layout worked, and we would be able to get it for about the same price that we are selling our current home for. With all that in mind, we decided to make an offer. They countered, and we came to an agreement. We found THE HOUSE! We hopped back on a plane EARLY Saturday morning so we could make it in time for the weekend services at Grace Family. (I'll post more about that tomorrow) It's amazing how God is working out all of the details for our move. Now, it's starting to feel like reality.

Isn't it wonderful how the details of our lives are
already "done" and we simply "walk in it"...
Like a beautiful song...one note after the other.
