Prayer Request

Well, this is it! We found a house. We have actually been looking at it online for a couple of weeks, but went to see it in person for the first time today. We both feel like this is the house that we are meant to be in and that God has led us to it.
It is perfect for us! It is the most Southern looking house we have seen up here. It has a wrap around porch and 5 acres for the boys to romp and roam. It is zoned as horse property, which is not a big deal right now, but if Jackson keeps showing interest in horses, we may have one down the road. Zoning for horse property is also important for resale. We don't plan on leaving it any time soon. This would be a house that we could stay in as long as we were in CO.

Now, for you pessimists out there...THE DOWN needs some work. Nothing structural, mostly just updating. The house was built in 1969 so things are a little outdated. Most of the work we can do ourselves, which will gain us lots of sweat equity. You know us though and we already have big plans...including an add on one day. For now though, the house is livable and MUCH BIGGER than this apartment. It is 27oo square feet, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 2 living areas.

OKAY, I know you are wondering about the title of this blog. We need lots of prayers to be sent up out there. We have to get rid of the MS house one way or another (Sell or Lease) before we can buy this one. We need the financing to work out in our favor. And we need the price on the house to drop (It has already dropped by $20,000 since we started looking at it).

We could be wrong and this may not be the house God wants us to have and we are ready to accept that if things don't work out. However, that being said, we really feel led to this house. We have great realtor, once again who we were led to. He feels like we can get a great deal on this house and agrees that it is a good investment. All we are asking you, our friends and family, is to stop what you are doing right now and say a little prayer for us that God's plan will be revealed to us and that if this is the home He wants us to buy to He will work things in our favor.

We love and miss you all. One reason for wanting this house is so we have plenty of room when all of you come to visit.

Like the house! It is still weird to me that you don't live in Ms. To think that you live in Co. is weird. Love you all and miss you tons!
