    Rachel, my eyes welled up as I read your summary of how you folks got your house! God has rewarded your faithfulness!! We know that He will continue to bless you, Dan and all the little Js in your new home!! Blessings!! (It’s also exciting to think that visiting grandparents will have a bathroom at the same level as the guest bedrooms!!)

    That is so wonderful! I wish you much happiness in the new home. Saying good bye to the other will be hard. I cried like a baby when we did it. Have a great weekend!

    We had a similar experience recently, and it certainly taught us that sometimes you just have to trust and you will receive what you need.

    Hooray, Rachel!! I am tearing up too as you lead us through this amazing house journey – we are all falling in love with the house that became a home immediately!! (I especially love how you peeked through the back alley first!!)

  27. Ellen says:

    I came back and read this post…how much I missed! What a wonderful time for you, Rachel. House hunting can be so stressful, but when it’s ‘the house’ you sometimes just know. Will pray that God gives you peace and guides you through all the details in store.
