Everything In Its Time

::Click on photo to enlarge::

On Monday, PandaPop and I closed on our first home purchase on the house in which have been living for a year and a half. We have been married almost 18 years and have never owned a home for various reasons. Over the years we have enjoyed not being concerned about having to sell our house or financing any problems that would arise since all we have had to do is call a landlord and let them worry about it.

I grew up in my same house my whole life until I got married then we proceeded to move homes 14 times in 16 years. The Lord can call us away from our current ministry at anytime, but we are hopeful to stay put for awhile since we have moved so much already.

We have had a lot of fun this week tweaking some things around the house to make it even more "ours". Thankfully, we are out of debt except for our one car and now the house. THAT is a huge relief!!!! PP has been diligent to seeing us get out of debt and the Lord has blessed us abundantly. Now we have to save for a foundation repair, a kitchen face-lift and Disney!


  1. Congratulations on home ownership!!! How exciting. Such a beautiful picture of you and your husband. I really need to get my husband and I alone for a new picture. It's our 18th wedding anniversary tomorrow. 18 is a pretty darn special number. Hugs!
