Sunday afternoon a friend from church called to tell me about a house that had just become open. It sounded like it would suit our needs perfectly, but I didn’t want to get excited until I’d actually spoken with the owner and had seen the house. We have seen some very frightening rental properties so I didn’t want to be disappointed.
We went and saw it yesterday, and left there knowing it would be ours. We’re so happy to have a place to move to! We’ll most likely be moving some time next week; they’re repainting the entire house, cleaning carpets, and rebuilding the entire front porch. Of all the landlords I’ve spoken with in the past two months, these (a father-son team) were by far the most reasonable and willing to work with us. They’ll even let us keep our dog, and even came down a bit on their rent they asked for.
Another thing we’re so excited about is that it’s a block from church; I can look out the window and see the church building. We have really enjoyed living in this town (we’re here in town with friends, but we weren’t sure if that’s where we’d end up), so it’s nice to know we’ll be here for the next little bit.
Just thought I’d share my praise. . .and thanks to all of you who were praying that we’d find a place soon!
