365.45: We Got a House!

I am just so excited right now! God has totally provided the perfect house in the perfect location for the perfect price! (Which happens to be neither of the options from this earlier post.) It is close to the church, but even closer to Holden's preschool and Ryan's work that the other really small option most of you bloggy friends voted for. It is slightly larger than our house in Woodstock, and being an older house, has so much charm: think built-in bookshelves, hardwoods, french doors. It's on a beautiful street lined with old trees and we even have next-door neighbors with little kids! (They had a lemonade stand set up yesterday when I drove by.) It is 3BR/2BA with a breakfast nook AND a large formal dining room. "But didn't you sell your dining room table?" you ask. We did. But the owner is providing an even nicer table complete with chairs and a hutch for free! And we sold a couch and sofa-chair. Guess what else comes with the house...two couches. That's right. Also included is a desk, patio tables and chairs, new refrigerator, newer washer/dryer, new dishwasher. Basically everything we sold in Atlanta is being provided, saving us so much money in not having to re-buy them. Hmmm...sounds like God was up to something!
Below are a couple pictures from the ad. You KNOW I will post more once we're moved in! Ryan is going to Seattle on a business trip next Tuesday-Friday, and we should be moving in that Saturday/Sunday! Perfect!
Thanks a million times for all of your prayers!


  1. It IS definitely a gift from God.....who provides even more abundantly than we ever ask. Thank you to ALL of you who so faithfully prayed for Courtney, Ryan, Holden, Turner and Phoebe (who also was provided a large fenced-in yard)! To God be the glory...may many come to know Jesus...and many be their new home (for the next 18 mos).

  2. Wow, what a great house and a wonderful answer to a lot of folks praying! There must be something to this prayer thing!!

    We are so happy and thanksful for God's provision.

    Love to all -- Pop Pop

  3. What an amazing answer to prayer...out God is SO GOOD! I love the orange kitchen and can't wait to see pictures once you turn this house into a home!

  4. yay! :-) I can't wait to come visit you in your new house!!
