Dreams come true

We own a home ... the house key is truly precious metal! I don't know how many people were there. Quite a few.

It was a really neat time with everyone giving credit to God and prayers. I think, my face actually hurts from smiling ...but I'm still smiling!

Afterwards, we were given a living room set by a few couples in our church. I knew we were getting some living room furniture, but didn't quite know what to expect ... they did perfect! I found a picture and posted below what they bought for us! They'd asked me about what our needs and wants were. I told them that Don really needed a recliner, and there wasn't room for both a recliner and loveseat. I'd rather see him get the recliner than have the normal couch & loveseat set. Well, they decided that wasn't good enough and got us a loveseat that reclines in both seats, and a couch that reclines on both ends!!! So the couch and love seat has FOUR recliners!!!!

Diane and I had talked about how Don really wanted leather and I REALLY didn't want leather. I didn't mind the look, but I can't stand how cold it is in the winter and how you stick to it in the summer. So, they got this beautiful suede that looks like a brushed leather!!!

The color, a beautiful olive green! We couldn't have picked better if we'd tried!!!
So now the moving starts!!!

We were given a computer, a $75 gift certificate from Albertsons, a beautiful family Bible and a tool chest. The lady who lives in the Habitat house just down the street from mine presented us with the Bible and tool chest. She is a wonderful lady that I met at my classmate's building ... and she prayed WITH me that I would get into Broken Arrow ...and that regardless of the complications that all the pathways would open up ... it was a very special moment for both of us. She specifically had prayed the whole year that we'd get the particular lot we did ..she wanted us as neighbors.

We now have a solid house as well as a home.

    Artemis ...he believes now, he didn't want to leave Sunday, didn't even care that there was nothing for dinner at the house. For a teenage boy, that was impressive!
