God's blessings

Well, the time is almost here. Caleb and I will be moving the last week of September to a new apartment. We've lived in our current apartment for almost a year. We got a letter in the mail a couple of months ago about whether or not to renew our lease. We had been thinking of moving into a 2 bedroom (nope, no plans for a baby...not yet at least) because it has more room and we have a lot of stuff, mostly Caleb's, that needs to be stored. So we had been talking and praying about it and made a call to the apt. manager. We asked her if she had any 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor with a dishwasher and a patio so that Jasmine, our cat can go outside. We felt like we were being a little difficult being that we wanted a patio that led out into the grass and not the parking lot so that Jasmine will be safer stepping outside. She said at the time there were no openings but she would keep us posted. About a month went by and she hadn't called us back. I told Caleb we should call her and we did a couple of days later. She said that she did have a recent opening for a 1st floor 2 bedroom and asked if we would like to see it the next day. Well, whatdoyouknow it was everything we wanted! It was a 1st floor, had 2 bedrooms, a HUGE walk in closet in the bigger bedroom, a dishwasher AND the kitchen and bathroom were TWICE the size of the ones we have now! It also not only had a patio, but it led out into the grass like we had hoped for! I knew this was the hand of God moving in our lives because it was everything we wanted and more. We will be going on our anniversary getaway and then moving almost immediately when we get back. This is a month of busyness and blessings. I'm going to miss our little apartment that we honeymooned at and lived in for the last almost year of our marriage. But we are really excited about moving to a bigger place. Thank you God!

Congrats! I hope you love your new place and I hope you have a wonderful anniversary celebration!!! I read your comment on my sister's blog and I'm just like you. I have an anniversary for everything. I just can't make too big of a deal about the dates or I drive my husband crazy. We only celebrate the BIG anniversaries. I celebrate the little ones myself -- being thankful and loving to my honey and giving thanks to God!!!
