NO LONGER OK HOMEOWNERS:)

As much as we loved our home in Oklahoma...

As many amazing family memories we made in that home from bringing home Hope, Levi, and Isaiah, great family walks around our nice neighborhood, the boys and dad building their tree fort or neat HUGE loft in their bedroom, late night runs across the yard to the neighbors tornado shelter in bad weather, hard fought soccer games in the yard, bike rides, playing with wonderful neighbors, morning meetings with the kids and our precious neighbor Barbara on her back porch (she was such a gem and loved our kids so much!), block parties, swimming in neighbors pools, to grand attempts at gardening...

There are hard, difficult memories that are etched in my mind too from losing Samuel, the heartache and lonliness of a loss being in a brand new city, housing our 15 year old birth mom and losing baby joel...

Praise God that He brings beauty from our ashes... joy from our mourning... peace from our despair... He is so so faithful!

As much as we loved that home... It was such a great gift from God... Nicer than we ever dreamed of having... the perfect yard for us... great neighbors...

We are SO SO THANKFUL THAT THE LORD BROUGHT US BUYERS AND THE DEAL IS DONE... We no longer own that home. 

It is such a gift to not have to think about taking care of the house and paying the bills while we live far away.  God brought a buyer in His perfect timing... Once again He provides and we are astounded and grateful~!

So happy to hear this news I know it will be a blessing to not have to worry about the house.

Woo Hoo! I bet that is SUCH a huge relief. I still have it on my calendar the date we sold our last home, leaving for Seminary...and I do a happy dance. We're looking SO forward to seeing your new home in a few days-for REAL hugs!!! We love you guys!
