FREE good home?
I have heard of "Free to Good Home", but until now, never heard of "Free Good Home"! Let me explain...We have a new place to live. Not a new home but new to us! It is probably to date, one of my favorite places we have lived. (We did live in a small community years ago that had a home I would say comes in first.) There is quite a story behind this "new" home! It is not just a house to me! We have made it a "home" because God has given it to us to live for a time! It was a gift from him for this chapter in our lives. The circumstances are amazing, actually. At the last moment, a dear woman realized that our family would be homeless and offered her home to us free of charge for as long as we need it. Can you believe it?!!! For months we sat in our living room with a lurking foreclosure over our heads. Although no way to pay the mortgage, there was always that thought and maybe some guilt or burden to pay it. With that behind us as of January 18th, and NO way to change it, we sit here in our living room, from God, with no worry of being homeless! We don't know how long we will be here but God has made an impossible situation beautiful! There is a heavenly economy! This lady who offered her home (the one we are living in right now), has also seen some things happen with her home. It was vacant for some time and it was in need of some TLC! An amazing organization came to us because of a friend of mine who knew we were in need, and redid the kitchen and other things that needed to be fixed FREE of charge. I will get into more detail soon. I am still trying to get pictures and my camera does not want to get along with my computer since the move. So I will post them soon!
Thank you for your many prayers! Continue! We are still in need of a job. We are settling in to our new home and LOVING it! We do have a dream of another home, someday! But God has been so good to us and held us up in a very desperate time! He simply is AWESOME! Trust Him! He IS who He says He is and He does what He says He is going to do! He takes care of His children!
