THANKFUL THURSDAY and “welcome” to my home! I certainly don’t want to sound boastful, but this Thankful Thursday I want to thank the Lord (outloud) for our new home! I know I have mentioned it before – probably more than once since we moved in – but we feel so abundantly blessed in our new home!
When we moved in, it was cold and snowy and stay inside kind of weather….but with the beautiful spring and being outdoors, we are enjoying not only our home – but our yard, our neighbors and neighborhood even more!
Before we moved, Hubbie and I were what I called professional “house hunters”! We had a hobby of looking at homes and especially walking through model homes – still tons of fun!
I’ll admit – I feel in love with just about all of them. I can’t tell you how many times my heart told me, “this is the perfect house!” Thankfully (at least NOW I can thankfully) my much more practical hubbie was not so easily attached emotionally and he always seemed to notice “the negatives” of all those houses I found so perfect.
To say I would be disappointed – even angry:( at times – would be an understatement. But as honestly as I know to be…there came a point when I determined to be content with our townhouse and old neighborhood. I really began to believe we would stay there forever.
And, then God was able to bless (those ugly attitudes can really stand in the way of our blessings….)
We drove by this home one evening while looking for another house we had seen on the internet. It was love at first sight for both of us!!
We had not seen in on the listings because the sign had just gone in the yard that morning (just for us!!) We, of course, just wanted to take a peek – just for fun:) – and then the Lord literally opened every door….leading us as we bought, sold and moved!
It was beyond exciting!! And, honestly, every morning when we get up, Hubbie and I remark how much God has done for us, how happy we are living here, and how grateful we are……
So, that’s why I thought I would share today – not boasting – just bragging on our wonderful Savior!
Now – our weekend highlights are trips to Lowes!, working in the yard and filling flower pots!!
A lot of the bushes and plants were already here…and we have really enjoyed the fruits of someone else’s previous labors!! The azaleas have been beautiful. These gorgeous blooms always remind me of my granddaddy – his beds were FULL of these bushes and each spring his yard was ablaze with all their color!! He would be so thrilled that I have these few in my front yard:)
