Well... the big news?
I'M BUYING A HOUSE!
There... I said it. And it feels good :)
Now, most of you are probably thinking, "Didn't she just move?" Yes... I did. I'm ridiculous and never seem to do things in the most logical way. However, I fell in love with this house, it was the right price and after LOTS of prayer... I felt like it was what God was leading me to do.
So, as of right now, I'll be closing at the end of October. However, I may close earlier once all the stuff with my bank gets straight. Oh.my.
It won't be as easy as moving in... why? Well, I'm a Decker. But, more than that, I'm my mother's daughter. We gotta make things our own. When we nest, we like to nest in something that we LOVE. That's just how we roll. So... I've signed on with a contractor (whom I have lovingly deemed as my "dad in Austin") that will start on a little ren-o-vation as soon as I close. I've promised him that I will be his dream customer and have everything picked out and ordered before I close.
Don't worry that the fall is the busiest season at work. And, that I have things planned almost every weekend of October. But, by goodness gracious, I WILL be having a Crimah party come December.
Without further ado... here's the future homestead...
Please be praying for this home... that it is a home to everyone who enters it! That God's light can shine through these walls and that it is a place for Him to do a work in me and everyone who walks through the door!
I'm particularly praying Ephesians 3:20 over the house:
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think,
according to the power at work within us, to him be the glory in the church
and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
