Can You Hear the Praises?

Oh my goodness friends and family! I have waited so long and cried so many tears leading up to writing this particular post. It's here and now I'm completely at a loss for words. I first shared with you here as we were just beginning the journey, then again here, then here, one more here, oh yeah here again, and here and one more time here. Oops there is more here, here, and here. Please don't feel the need to go back and read all these crazy emotional posts, but I do want you to see what has absorbed way too much of my time over the last 14 months.

And now, drum roll please........... OUR HOME IS RENTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AMEN!!! PRAISE GOD IN THE HIGHEST!!! THANK YOU JESUS!!! I AM SO HAPPY!!!

We have deposits in the bank, lease signed, check for this month's rent, and I just took a much needed deep breath and sigh of relief. Thank you so much Jim, Karissa, Aaron, and Joseph with O'Neill Realty for all you've done for us. We appreciate your prayers, your devotion and your stamina throughout this last year. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Now, stop for a minute all of you who have prayed with me, and for me in regards to our home. Shout a word of thanks to God. Let me know too, if you have been praying so I can thank God for your precious gift of prayer. Love you guys!

I'm so happy for you, Susie. My word, this was a trial but you know, you handled it beautifully.

Yes, I was one of the many people who prayed about this. But you don't have to thank me. It was my pleasure.

Pam said...

So happy for you, Susie. I know what a burden that has been and how freeing it must be to have that lifted.

Praying now for a great renting situation and that these people love your house like you do.

P.S. Susie, don't know if I ever shared this with you or not but we went through the same situation with our house in 1984 that sat vacant for 15 months. I know the pain and I know the joy!!!
