House Blessings...

God has been so good to us in where we live as I have written numerous times. Speaking of which, remember this post? Well, here's the update of what's been happening. First, we have a friend from church who buys and sells homes for a living and we asked him right away to help us look for a good deal for our landlord. Well, we've been waiting, and waiting and praying and waiting, and FINALLY something came along. We haven't presented it to our landlord yet, but it has all of the qualifications we think that he's looking for. All in the midst of this, we keep wondering how much are we going to put out more in order to do this and are we going to get ourselves into some kind of a trap? Eeek. But, as Christians, we must believe that God is so intimately involved that He will make right come out right. So, like I said, we haven't yet presented it to our landlord and then this afternoon as I checked the mail, we got what looks like God's provision helping us to qualify for a loan. It is a state "program" available for new home buyers. The qualification is it has an income limit of $85,000 annually for a family of four. Not that I'm telling you all what we make, but we don't pass that (sMiLe). SO, with this thing we will not only have a great rate, but also a grant (non-repayable) for the state to pay 4% on the down. AMAZING, no? I'm not too into programs, but in this case, it's here for first time homebuyers and someone is going to use the money. Why not us. It sure would help us out. Anyway, I don't have too much to say on the subject, except that it seems that God is moving! And, we are patiently waiting. :-) I will update as things unfold.
