Daydream believer and a homecoming scene...

To save you the immense effort of clicking a tab, I am going to summarize yesterday's entry.  We found a house.  We LOVED it.  We placed a bid, so did many other people.  We gave God liberty to intervene on our behalf.  That pretty much brings us up to the present.

We got "the call".  It was a call of congratulations.  We (the right reverend and myself) leaped onto the ottoman at the same time and jumped up and down on it like a couple of screamy school girls. (I changed my password on this account, Michael, so don't waste your time trying to delete that.) And just because you're all (as in the five or so of you who will probably read this sometime before next year) so interested in what it looks like,  I bummed some photos of my new dwelling offline just before the listing post was removed from the internet.
This is my staircase.  (giggle, giggle... I have a staircase!)
Living room - (Notice the French entry doors!)
Two car garage, full basement, master suite, green shutters...

To the left of the upstairs window is a Hall of closets leading to a huge master bath.
Of course, there are some things yet to do to make it 100% us.  But, I think that's half the fun of getting a new house.  Don't you?

PS.  Thank you, God.  Your guidance, goodness, mercy, faithfulness, and peace are responsible for everything good in our lives, but right now, ESPECIALLY OUR HOUSE! 

Also, please enjoy this llama.
