I've had a list for a very long dream list for the new home God was going to give us. It has been fun discovering how God answers our HEARTS-DESIRES. We were at the farm on Saturday to drop off some shelves and visit their yard sale and just plain visit because we can never get in and out in a few minutes – it’s always a few hours. Talk Talk talk!!! They are very sweet and friendly people!

The farmers wife – was going over her very long list of things to ask me about – mostly things like – do you want this or that. There is a LOOOONG list of things they are leaving – talk about being blessed coming and going!!! Furniture, lawn chairs, sports equipment, cabinets, garden stuff, clocks, pillows, bedding, carpets, curtains and on-and-on!

On our travels through the house to look at all the things she wanted to show me she stopped at a closet upstairs and I nearly stopped breathing. The inside of the closet is wallpapered in the most beautiful wallpaper I have ever seen – huge cabbage roses on a light yellow background. It was similar to but much nicer than the wallpaper I used in our master bedroom here in the city.

I coulda cried.

Number 11 on my list: One room with roses on the wallpaper.

Best part?? She bought enough to paper the whole upstairs and is leaving me the rolls. When we get the addition done I will paper one wall of our master bedroom in roses – again.

Only 11 days to go and I will no longer have to say: GUESS-WHAT???  WE'RE-MOVING-TO-THE-COUNTRY!!!!  because we'll be there!!

The journey continues...

The house is SOLD.

I have been quiet-for-awhile - consider it HOLDING MY BREATH- while the roller coaster ride took its twists and turns.  Our home - which everyone said would sell in a week - was on the market for 6 weeks.  We had muliple offers - some that we rejected and others that simply fell apart.  It seems crazy to say it but we were waiting for the right people - the ones God wanted to have this home.  I saw in my mind a mom-dad-and two-kid family and FINALLY they arrived.  I want to ask them some day WHAT ON EARTH they have been doing for the past 6 weeks while we pulled our hair out!

On Friday May 28th the offer was presented and we waited till this week for all the conditions to be met.  The SOLD sign should appear tomorrow on our front lawn.  HALLELUJAH is all I can say!!! Our mortgage lady REALLY wanted the paperwork to be finished by the end of May - we squeaked by with two full days to spare!

All the paper work is done.  I am a happy girl.

Now I need to pack...oh dear.
