I am happy to report - life is good!
We have dealt with a few struggles over the past few months - mostly financial. I love my job, but took a paycut when I left the practice of law. My husband is working hard to build his book of business in the insurance world, while doing a whole lot of part time jobs on the side. We just never knew each month if we would have enough money to make it. Our two biggest money guzzlers? Our student loan payments and our rent. Just the two of those payments combined took up almost all of my monthly income. Yikes!
How have we fixed this? We found a new place to live - for almost half the price! We are so excited. God absolutely provided more than we could ever have imagined. The price is less than we thought we could find for such a nice place. Just check this baby out!
Right now we live in a 3/2.5 - which is really bigger than we need. Our new place is a 2/2 and is still 1200 square feet! We get the one car garage you see in the picture, and our place is at the front of the building where all those windows are. There are actually three units in this building - my sister-in-law freaked out because she thought we had all those garages to ourselves! Haha.
We will be moving in next weekend. I can't even begin to tell you the peace of mind this has given us. Yes, we love our current place, and hate to have to move everything. But God has absolutely blown me away with His provision. There are so many little blessings in this place too - it's like He said, "Callie and Nate, I want to show you just how much I love you." There are so many little things we always had hoped to have - double sinks in our bathroom, the washer and dryer included, lots of fun places to go within walking distance...just so many little blessings!
Sorry for the oozing of joy in this blog post. I just can't keep it all inside! I feel on top of the world.
God is so good. We are so blessed. I will be giving thanks for so many things this Thanksgiving!!
What are you thankful for today?
