Good Blessings

  1. Wow, my little family may be receiving a wonderful (needed) blessing. Our living situation is very bad right now. After losing my job in the telecom industry last year I hadn't been able to find another job and my hubby makes min wage, so we had to move into a very rundown house that should probably be condemned:uhoh21: I try to be thankful and count my blessings, it's better than a cardboard box.....
    However we were contacted by Habitat for Humanity today and we are one of four families that they have decided to possibly help build homes for .They will be able to build 2 houses so 2 of these 4 families will be selected. I PRAY PRAY PRAY that we are one of them, we so need it. I want a place my kids aren't afraid to be in. I want this so bad for those 3 kids who deserve so much more than what I can give them. There are why I decided to go back to school and become a nurse because I want to provide a good life for them. And the great thing is that this situation isn't just charity. Yes they do the building mostly, but we will get to help and we pay for everything, financed over 30 years,very low payments, but WE PAY for it. I love that~!
    Just wanted to ask if any of you will pray for us or just channel good thoughs our way! They come out to inspect our house and meet with us tomorrow night and will make their decision in the next 2 weeks.:hatparty:

    Just wanted to say thank you to those that posted. This morning, I woke up to someone knocking on the door and there were 3 women standing there, with a bouqet of flowers, a bouquet of balloons, and a huge cardboard cutout key. We were the family selected for the new home. I was so excited and shaking so bad my husband had to hold me up...lol Again,Thanks for your caring and kindness......

    A HOME



    A house is a place
    Where your hat can be hung,
    But a home is a castle
    From which love has sprung.

    It's not the furnishings
    That make a home.
    It's where you'd rather be
    When you begin to roam.

    It's not a house
    Of extravagant array,
    But a haven for love
    Born day after day.

    So when you come home
    From a hard days work.
    Leave your troubles behind
    For that's where anger can lurk.

    Love one another
    And be pleasant of mind.
    Then a house can be a home
    And there - God's love you will find.
