So we pray. And God always gives us reassurance of HIS faithfulness.
"As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn." Psalm 18: 30-36

We finally closed escrow and got our keys! We left school and had lunch at our new house. Thank you Jesus that we could buy a house in this crazy time...If I had a dollar for every time the loan people came back to us with something we needed to prove (like why we deposited 50$ in June into Dave's bank account... I have no idea why they needed to know that..I sure don't care!) We had to get letters from employers, letters from credit cards, letters from landlords, letters from banks, letters from our future children saying they wont have expensive toys (okay not really that one but pretty much). We went through 7 different lenders and 2.5 months. We had to fix the front and back patio, the slab, level around the house and patch the stucco just to get the dang loan. I had a few melt downs, one in which I was screaming crying on the phone with my mom and dad (you can ask them, poor dad sorry!) We fought, I cried, we planned, we talked, we didn't talk, we moved out of our apartment and into the back room of Dave's parents house, we got a dog, and we finally finally finally got our house. I didnt have the energy to keep all the updates on the blog, mostly because it changed everyday and it changed and we were given the green light so many times only to have it taken away.
But God is faithful. Especially in a time that makes no sense (AIG, Fannie and Freddie Mac anyone?)
So now its time to celebrate and get to work!!!
