Curve/bump in the Road ~ When we make plans God Laughs

Well we're still packing and stacking, Friday they come to take pictures and then we'll see.  We might take another trip to FL to look at other property.  It seems that after 17 days of waiting the bank has decided to let the propertry foreclose and not accept out offer or the other couples offer.  So we are searching again and have found another potential that is quite a bit lower that what we bid on the other place.  Has more square footage and with what we save what we get from selling this place we can have a screened in room and pool built.  So we are excited, we never know what the Lord will do for us and it just amazes me because this new option seems better and it is exactly 2.5 miles and a six minute drive from Sista's house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WooHoo yes Lord thank you Jesus!!

Packing packing oh my lol

Well it is official we are headed for Ocala, FL. We put our bid in for our new home, we saw it last month and when we walked in to do a walk through it was like we were finally "home". A place where we can grow deep roots. God is good and the doors are opening for us. Yes we have had a few obstacles but it is amazing, cause when God says this is it and go you step out in faith and trust him and man things are just popping an falling into place. Plus the interest rate we got is 1.5 - 2 pecent lower that what we are paying here. The home is bigger, better designed and the kitchen, everything is in the right place!! The pool area is screen in and we can have a run right off of the pool area for the dogs so they can enjoy the out of doors more (Rita will love that). Michael will have plenty of space he needs for his trains and hotwheel collection. He has already been talking to some of his friends who live in FL and they are so excited that he will be tops 2 hours or lest away from them. Plus I will be about 10 minutes away from sista which is just awesome. It has been 6 years of hell in respect to being so far from here, we've always been less than 20 minutees away an noiw the 6 years of draught so to speak is ending. We'll be able to have tea by the pool and discuss the scriptures and sermons of Pastor Tim. We'll be able to do some powerful praying as well as having an afternoon tea and BBQ's for friends to come and share good food and friends time. The Lord has let us now that our time and season in TX is now over an he is sending us to the next level in our journey and next chapter in our lives and man is it exciting Praise God!!!!!!!

The above is the kitchen notice that I have 2 deep draws that will hold my pots and pans!!!! No more standing on tippy toes to reach things thank you Jesus!!

This is part of the pool area, we'll be getting a white fence or a pressure treated one put up to keep our little dogs in and other dogs out.

This is looking down into the family room. The sliders lead to the pool and the 3rd bathroom. There are also sliders in the formal dining room to the pool and also access from the master bedroom as well. We just love it!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I am back to packing now, will post more pictures of our new home is the up coming entries.
Have an awesome Labor Day and week y'all!
