Some Much Happening

Okay AMBER here it is...
So much has happened in such a short amount of time. You know God does work in mysterious ways. We have prayed for about 2 years now for a different direction in our lives. And God has answered our prayers. Back in November my hubby applied for a job in Ft. Worth, TX. We didn't hear anything for a long time, and then in December we got a phone call & was told that the position had been put on hold. We were disappointed, but continued to pray. And in January we got another phone call & hubby was offered the position. So...we have been on a journey to get things together for us to move to south Ft. Worth. God has blessed us in many ways, first of all, we put our house up for sell. It sold in 5 days! WOW! Then hubby had to start new job January 26Th. So January 23rd, we went to south Ft. Worth to look for a house. And once again God blessed us. We found the most beautiful home, great price, great neighborhood and close to a creek. We made an offer on this home and we will be able to move in March 1st. We wanted to be closer to our kids & Grandkids & now we will be. We will be within 2 1/2 hours of both our kids. Yippie! We will get to see our Grandkids much more often than we do now. Below are photos of our new home.

This is the front of the house. So pretty. Can you believe that the front door is 8 foot tall? Too cool.This is the back of the house, great porch & deck. And see the window on the far right side? It slides open side to side, love that window. I'm sure that is were the "studio" will be!
And look at these beautiful kitchen cabinets. Love the trim work at the top.This is the breakfast area, what great windows, they are 7 feet tall. Amazing natural light.Yes that's me trying on the tub for size, oh la la, so comfy!!!!!!!!

I have lived here most of my life. It will be difficult for me to leave my family and friends. But I do believe that God wants us to be there. We are so Blessed.

If any of you great blog friends live near Ft. Worth TX please send me an email. Hope you all have a great week. Hugs***Renea
