As many may know, last week we packed up our last things and closed the door to our first house and said goodbye to Chicago and headed to Texas! David’s work is relocating to a small town about two hours East of Dallas, Texas so we all have been super busy packing since we got home from three months on the road.
Unfortunately, we did not get them packed before the snow came, so we had another added dimension of working with the cold blowing snow.
Our last Sunday at the church we have been attending for all of our married lives was bittersweet knowing that we would not be back for a long time but sweet with all the memories of people there and messages we have heard and been challenged by.We were able to celebrate our move with a nice time on an ice rink as a family.
We have been blessed to be able to move into an apartment for a short season while we are fixing up a home that we purchased. The house that we purchased was one we had been watching for sometime on the web noticing that it had been going down in price. It was a foreclosure that an investor had purchased and then was not able to flip due to their terminal health condition. They were glad to see it get into the hands of a young family.
There was a large whole cut in the floor of the master bedroom. David jumped right in and in just one week, we have seen so much progress.There are some major things that need to be done to the house, but when it is finished up, it will be a wonderful place for us to live. Paul has had so much fun being daddy’s big helper!
Just to add some fun, we quickly installed a slide off the front porch and the kids love it.
It’s Christmas Eve! Priscilla and Paul and Davia are having fun making some more fun treats to enjoy! May God bless each one of us with a deeper awareness of his presence in our lives and gratefulness for His coming to earth.
