New Year, New Adventures

It's been a long time since I've been here to blog.
I believe the life of the Greyhaired Momma Blog has come to an end.

But, never fear.  I'm cookin' up a new blog with all our new adventures.
Won't you follow along?

When you least expect it...

Today, while Thing 1 and Thing 2 were at band practice, I decided to walk around the neighborhood.  

The neighborhood in which band practice is located is old.  Old brick homes. Tiny by today's standard, but overly welcoming.  Porch swings, comfy chairs, and potted plants abound.  

I started walking just for something to do.  Tried to quiet my mind.  Open my eyes.   And I found that just 4 blocks from the hustle and bustle of the city , was a haven of peace.  

What I found made me smile.  I didn't know I needed a break.  A second wind.  

But God did. 
And He abundantly provided. 
When I least expected it.

... As we wait upon the Lord...

We have been waiting for clear word from God about what to do once MotorMan retires.  We have plans and know that God has plans for us, however we wanted to make sure our plans converged.  We wanted to make sure we were following His leading, and not our own.  

Over the last 7 months, we have prayed fervently for God's will to be revealed in terms of a housing possibility.  We have prayed for what is best for our family.  Where do we go?  What do we do?  How do we do it?  Where will money come from?  And on, and on, and on...  

Today, God has answered.
And provided abundantly.

We now own 20+ acres and a house with lots of potential for our family.

The only answer we have as to why we now own this piece of heaven:  God willed it to be.  
From an initial short sale offer that fell through, to a foreclosure.
A foreclosure offer immediately accepted by the bank before the property was relisted.
A sales price that defies the value of the land, not to mention the cost the amazing house upon said land.
A smooth closing, with minimal closing costs, great rates, and AMAZING people to work with.
(though there was a TON of paperwork!)

We praise God for His provision.
And we pray that whatever we do as a family on this property will be honoring and glorifying to Him -- who, above all else, can do anything! 

All y'all come visit! 
We'll have plenty of room to roam!
