Gratituesday 8

It's time for a little shout out to the Lord, so you know that it must be Gratituesday, where one can be vocally thankful for something in life.

Today, I am extremely grateful to God that we will NOT BE HOMELESS. The seller and we finally agreed on a bid for the house we want. We've signed the contract and now all we need to do is to have the inspection and then to wait for our closing day.

Oh and as an added blessing, we were looking for a house with a lower cost, knowing that we could repair things as we lived in a house. For just a little more, we were able to find an older house that already has everything done: new roof, new paint, new AC, new kitchen, new paint. It's all been done for us. We only have one thing to change on the house, but that's a want, not a need.

We'll only be five minutes from church and much closer to work for both of us.

Knowing that God could have moved us to much more rural or remote places or to no place at all, we're very thankful that we won't be wandering in the desert like the Israelites with nary a place to lay our heads or any place to call "home" for long. (Personally, I like running water and electricity. I'm spoiled that way. I'm just glad it was in God's plan to give us those things now.)

By the way, I'm really thankful to have so many friends who have raised us to the Lord time and time again for all or our home transitions. Y'all prayed for our house to sell, y'all prayed for us to find a home and y'all prayed for us to have patience like Job. I cannot have prayed for better friends.

Head on over to Laura's place to see some other ways that some bloggers are thankful to God today. Your heart can't help but sing praise to God when you see such words of adoration for the God who provides for all our needs and who keeps us close to Him.
