update on life!

I miss blogging. I decided that it has been WAY too long since I have shared and connected with all of you...so here I am! 

I suppose I should give you an update on life? 

My last post began with our "almost" townhouse. Let me tell you our story since then.

Ever since we put an offer on our townhouse, we were unsure about timing. It was a shortsale, and there is never a definite answer in dealing with those. My prince and I were confident that this was where we wanted to be, but we were trusting even more that God's plan and will would be revealed.

We were trusting in God's perfect timing. 

Well we finally received the news that we were approved by the bank...we simply had to wait for a closing date...which is also very up in the air. This happened the end of May, right before Memorial day weekend.

We continued to trust God. We prayed that we would be able to close by the end of May. (My prince was moving out of his apartment Memorial Day weekend, and was going to have to move back in with his parents. Also, banks like to close at the end of the month).

Thursday, May 26th was when we got the call. There had been a cancellation at the closing office, and we were scheduled to close on Friday, May 27th. We were told that it was a miracle we got in before the end of May. (Yes...and an answer to prayer)!

My prince and I are now home owners. It is exciting and strange all at the same time. One thing I know for sure is that God is faithful. We do not deserve anything He has given us, and we give Him all the glory. Since then I have realized that although my prince and I own the house on paper, it ultimately belongs to God. He has allowed us to use this gift for His glory...and that excites me the most.

My prince is living in the house, and I will move in after the wedding. However, I have spent alot of time there....PAINTING, and DECORATING :)

One of the first times I was there after the closing, I opened up a piece of Dove Chocolate. I looked at the message on the inside of the wrapper, and I felt God whisper in my ear...

"You are exactly where you are supposed to be." 

My greatest desire in life is to be in the center of God's will. Knowing that God is in control allows me to worry less and trust more.

 Thank you Lord for your perfect timing. Help me to trust you in every blessing and sacrifice that comes my way.
