the house is still here, and I'm still in it

Am still looking around wondering how all my stuff found it's way into this house. I go to the bathroom and think, yep, that's my bath mat, that's my shower curtain, but who's bathroom is this? Yep that's my bed, my sheets, my dresser, and look, there's my clothes in that there closet, but who the hecks room is this? It's obviously still sinking in, that this is MY house. I'm not borrowing it, I'm not viewing it or testing it out, I'm not even renting it, it's mine. And there will be no strange person popping in at any time, asking us to please exit the premises, and give them back their house.
And it feels very weird, just knowing that my parents are around the corner, and my sister is down the street. They were both over today, for our first, neighborly visit. What a blessing it's going to bring to me and my family having them so close. I'm looking forward to all that God has in store.


  1. I still have those moments when I drive up to our house and think"is this really ours?"
    Enjoy every moment!!

  2. It hasn't really sunk it that you're down the street either. I LOVE your living room. i love standing at the top of the stairs over looking the vaulted ceiling! it's really a gorgeous house!

    God is good and He is our provider. He is faithful and just. He is all we need, and He is the reason that we are alive and well.....
