Blessed and Happy!

4 Jul

We are finally settled into our new home! It took the whole weekend plus a few days of very hard work and unpacking but we are thrilled to be done! The furniture is in order, pictures are hung, cabinets are organized, and potpourri is simmering – it’s home sweet home, at last! My mom and I are very happy! πŸ™‚

Celelebrating the Fourth of July was extra special for us sinceΒ we were able to have our first picnic; and our family loves to have picnics! My dear grandparents came over and we had a great time of fun, food, and fellowship. Ever since we’ve moved in, our house has been a flurry of activity with friends and family and I’m sure will continue to be as we love company and enjoy hospitality. There’s nothing really quite like it!

My heart is just bursting forth with praise to the Lord for His grace and goodness being poured out upon us. It is only by His grace that we have a lovely home that we can call ours; it is only by His grace that we are finally moved; it is only by His grace that we have been immensely blessed with family and friends who have labored along side with us in prayer and service during this whole process; and it is only by His grace that we can enjoy the freedom and independence we have as a nation and in our standing with Christ. Our Saviour is so great and mighty and I’m thankful to be called His child! God is good!

    A new house! What a blessing! I hope you are thoroughly enjoying it.

    It certainly looks like you had a fun 4th. How on earth did you take such awesome fireworks photos?

    By the way, you look so beautiful in your pictures. I especially like the one in sidebar. Cute dress too!
