Once upon a time there was a little family who live in a little house in the big city of Philadelphia. As time went by, the little family was not feeling so little. They were feeling pretty BIG within their little home. Beside that, they felt like their hearts were growing bigger for the people in other parts of their big city. They anticipated that big changes were on the horizon for them.
This family was loved so greatly by so many people that they often used blogs and newsletters and Facebook to communicate with all of their friends. With these big changes brewing in the hearts and lives of this little family, they wrote a nice, long newsletter to tell the story and get the word out. The wrote, formatted, edited, and submitted it to the printer.
With envelopes addressed and stamped, they waited for the stack of newsletters to arrive so that they could stuff envelopes and send them out to their friends. While they were frustrated that the man who drives the brown truck seemed to be purposefully trying to bring the newsletters whenever they weren't home, further delaying the distribution of their big news, they could only be so upset because other BIG EXCITING DEVELOPMENTS were taking place.
Within 48 hours of having submitted their newsletter for print, the family looked into a little swatch of territory that they had not yet explored. On a street only about 5 blocks away from their church, the family found a house for sale that was a size and price that seemed perfectly suited for them. In their newsletter they had describe a "financing miracle" as a necessary step for them to avoid the stepping stone of having to rent a home before being able to purchase their new home. The price of this house actually only required a "small financing miracle" which the family were the grateful recipients of.
The family put an offer on that house and had that offer accepted, and pending inspection are set to close on that house on June 1st!
More details coming soon, but we are so happy to share this pinch-me-I'm-dreaming fairy tale that God has written for us! Our inspection is Saturday and will give us a better idea of how feasible a June 1st closing is. We look forward to sharing all of the details soon so that you can celebrate with us and revel in God's amazing care a stunning favor!
