Home sweet Home! We bought a house!! We closed on our home Thursday & got the keys Friday! It’s a lovely 1936 home with beautiful character, charm and details.
We spent the weekend painting almost every room, ripping up carpet to uncover original wood floors & some other projects, SO grateful to have help from Corey’s parents and brother. We weren’t looking for a new home, but the opportunity presented itself, we kept praying, and watched as God opened doors little by little, giving us peace along the way. This has been in the works since February!
Playing worship music & praying while painting this weekend, I kept asking what the Lord has for us here, feeling peace in my heart. This verse has been the center of my focus since February, “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts. . . And be thankful.” -Colossians 3:15 It’s already starting to feel like home and we are so grateful for this space and excited to see how God moves with greater opportunity to open our home & hearts to love and serve others. We pray this just might be our forever home!
We moved into the home on my birthday. Then, over that weekend Corey’s whole family visited and helped us unpack and get settled, we literally unpacked every box (except the basement storage) while they were here! We gathered around the table for several meals, laughed and got to celebrate Mother’s Day- our home and hearts were FULL!
Our house is already feeling settled and like Home and Jesus continues to be at the center building our foundation on Him, just in a new space, letting our roots grow down! We’ve been filled with so much peace & joy — and for me extra grace in opening our home to serve others (even in the mess) but also in actually letting them help serve us! More to come soon as we continue to do updates and settle in!
“And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” -Colossians 2:6-7
