gratitude

welllll…. we signed the lease today. so we did it. we started over. i don’t know if anyone else understands the magnitude of feeling we have right now, but it’s overwhelming gratitude.

there’s a song by a band we both really love, and the verse and chorus says this:
“When clouds veil sun
And disaster comes
Oh, my soul
Oh, my soul
When waters rise
And hope takes flight
Oh, my soul
Oh, my soul
Oh, my soul

Ever faithful
Ever true
You I know
You never let go
You never let go
You never let go
You never let go”

this is our anthem. this is most certainly the song our hearts are singing to the Lord.

oh. and i’ve got a few pictures of the house. we weren’t able to get inside today, which is fine. the current tenant is still packing, and the house would seem teenier than it is. i think the backyard and the inside of the house are the same size. actually, i think the backyard is bigger. hah. and those big trees? pecan trees. so come this fall, you know what we’ll be doing. eating a ton of pecan pies. the landlord is going to take a week to clean and pressure wash and do some repairs before we move in, so the house will look a little different when you see it again. but the amazing turquoise trim will still be there.

also. i will probably take a break from blogging until we get moved in. i promise i will have lots of pictures when we get back online, but i have 3 weeks to get a lot done. our move in date is set for the 11th, and we should be back as soon as internet is turned on in the house. hopefully by the 11th.

so, thank you. everyone who’s been praying for us. i know the things that have transpired in our life are the direct result of prayer. we love you guys. a lot. and life on this blog is about to be very different. get ready. it’s gonna be awesome.
