Our New Home

June 24, 2008 was a big day for us.  It was the beginning of our dreams come true, the ground was broken for our new house!  It was an exciting day!  A lot has happened since eventful day and we have learned a lot and the Lord has been good to us through this whole experience.  We have had stressful times, but the Lord was with us through it all.  He is faithful!  We are not in the new house yet, something we thought for sure that by this time we would be.  We have had a few "dates" in mind when we thought we would be, but those have all come and gone.  We are now hoping to move in sometime during the month of July 2009.  Through this whole experience, the Lord has shown me that He does indeed have a perfect plan for our family, but we just need to trust Him that it will happen all in His time.  For He does make all things beautiful.

So I thought I would share some pictures from that happy day one year ago and  then a few pictures of what the house looks like now.  To read more of our story and to see pictures, you can read them here.

The brick layer just finished the job last week.

Still lots of work to do, but we are getting so close to moving in!  Inside the house is all painted and most of the floors are done as well.  Kitchen is in too.   Just a couple of bathrooms, laundry room and school room need the floors finished. Trim and doors also need to be put on, but they are all sitting in the house just waiting to be installed.  This week or next, the soffits and fascia will be installed, then the house will look finished on the outside, except the missing deck in the back of the house.  There is some inside clean up that needs to be done like windows need washing and some vacuuming. For the outside around the house there is a lot that needs doing too.   This has been quite the adventure and I’m not sure I would want to do it again, but the Lord has taught me so much and for that I am thankful.

In His time, in His time,
He makes all thing beautiful in His time.
Lord, my life to You I bring,
May each song I have to sing,
Be to You a lovely thing, in Your time.

In Your time, in Your time,
You make all thing beautiful in Your time.
Lord, my life to You I bring,
May each song I have to sing,
Be to You a lovely thing, in Your time.
