As usual, November seems to be the time to reflect and be thankful. I’m thankful year round but thought it would be fun to journal a bit about some thankful highlights in my life.
// I’m thankful for a home that seemed impossible to get into.
Women’s Retreat in 2013. Our guest speaker spoke a word for a couple wanting to get into a home. She said that home was coming and “you’ll be in that home before the new year…” Josh and I believed that was the Lord speaking directly to us but wow it seemed impossible! We had less than 5 months left in the year and needed to pay off (as well as save) over $10,000.00. In the natural it was actually impossible for us to do that. But God.
We had our very first home built and we moved in November of 2013.
We were able to build on a little over 1 acre of land outside of the city limits and although we put a lot of miles on our car from driving, it’s worth it.
// The ability to home school Melody.We learn, we grow, we talk, we play, we snuggle, we nap, we shop, we garden…and the list goes on. These are moments I cherish.
// That this is Melody’s daddy.
My oh my! The love these two have for each other. It makes my heart happy.
// My church.
It’s true – there is no place like Home. This place is home.
