Adventures in Homeownership!

We’ve only been living in our new home for 5 months, and the joy that it has brought us already is so astounding!! Here are a few of our portraits in and around our new home. We feel so blessed and thank the Lord very often for this gift of homeownership!

I just adore my sons Daniel O’Brien and Gabriel Elijah. Seeing them every day run around our home, wrestling, running up and down the stairs, climbing on furniture, leaving their sticky hands on the walls, all of it just makes me so joyful (even the aftermath!). I love seeing them happy and thriving, thanks again Jesus.

I love how my husband comes home every day and takes care of the grounds and the grass. He turns his sprinklers on every week to make sure that his grass is thriving. He also takes pride in taking care of our new rose bushes in the front of our home, as well as taking care of a Peace Lilly plant that his sister gave us for our housewarming. He has also adopted a baby tree and repotted her in our backyard. Whoever would have thought that a big burly man such as Daniel would have such a green thumb and a love for even the littlest of nature.

You said that if we are FAITHFUL over a FeW things, HALLELUJAH, that YOU would MAKE us RULER over many! Glory.

We Are New Homeowners!

I feel like praising GOD! For, HE is GOOOOOD to me! He loves me with an unconditional love, and He rains (reigns) down His glorious presence on me!

My husband and I recently purchased a BRAND NEW HOME! After 5 years of marriage, THIS WAS THE BEST ANNIVERSARY GIFT THAT A WOMAN COULD ASK FOR! I feel like shouting because the Lord is faithful. He said in His word that if we are faithful over a few things, that he would make us ruler over MANY things!

Welcome HOME, Wilson’s!

Our home is on 0.29 acres of 1 lot in the countryside of Winterville; it has 2,648 square feet of brand new construction! We spent 1-year planning and preparing, 2 months of paperwork and 6 hours in time spent closing at the law office!

God gave us a field for Daniel and Gabriel to run in, AMAZING neighbors whom we’ve already met and support from MANY family and friends! We spent a lifetime of praying and have 1 God who is in the midst of it all!! The Lord is good! Daniel and I are ready to make our house a HOME!

I can envision so many family dinners here, many breakfasts in bed with our hotel-style bedding and decor, many mornings at the bar area sipping hot coffee, and MANY evenings on the patio enjoying the warm summer air!!

Keep us in your prayers and we will do the same for you.

Bless you Jesus, for I am GLAD!

Good, Good Father

On this cold and icy morning, I am reminded of God’s faithfulness and that He. Is. Good. He is good when we are not good to Him, He is good when we are in our selfish own ways, and He is good when we are not faithful. Lord, help us to realize your faithfulness to us and that we need You. There is a glorious song that rings in my heart daily – It’s called “Good, Good Father” by Casting Crowns. Chris Tomlin has a psalm for it too. I have recently discovered a new group whom I am fond of who sings this hymn and who just recently followed me on Twitter. “Housefires” is a group who promotes the true gospel and a spirit-filled life through song.

Oh, I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think You’re like but I’ve heard the tender whisper of love in the dead of night.

You tell me that You’re pleased and that I’m never alone.

You’re a Good, Good Father, It’s who You are, It’s who you are, It’s who You are and I’m loved by You.

It’s who I am, It’s who I am, It’s who I am.

I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide.

But I know we’re all searching for answers only You provide.

‘Cause You know just what we need before we say a word.

You’re a Good, Good Father. It’s who You are, It’s who You are, It’s who You are and I’m loved by You. It’s who I am, It’s who I am, It’s who I am.

You are perfect in all of Your ways, You are perfect in all of Your ways, You are perfect in all of Your ways to us.

Oh it’s Love so undeniable I, I can hardly speak.

Peace so Unexplainable I, I can hardly think.

As You call me deeper still as You call me deeper still as You call me deeper still into love.

You’re a Good, Good Father It’s who You are, It’s who You are, It’s who you are and I’m loved by You It’s who I am, It’s who I am, It’s who I am You’re a Good, Good Father It’s who You are.

Today Lord, help us to give our worship to You. Let this song permeate our every being. Let this song be the anthem of our hearts – hearts filled with gratitude and thankfulness unto You.

May we meditate on Your precepts and seek Your will for our lives. Help us to know that You. Are. Good. And, that You are GOD.

In spite of it all. In spite of anything that we may be going through and in spite of any doubt that tries to creep in. Touch everyone reading this today, Jesus that their hearts may feel Your call.

Guide us in our finances, our families, our friendships and our marriages. Cover us in Your holy blood. Let us see Your salvation. Thank You for being a holy and Good, Good Father.

Financial Matters

Omg, Happy January 1! Watching Suze Orman, so happy, learning so much ~ Ready to take action steps to “Create my new American Dream.” I am taking all of my student loans out of forbearance after watching this. What she said is the truth ~ the loans are just growing, and GROWING! Omg. She said that the government could garnish your wages and your social security. Gee, not here. Lord help me to be a saver, it is not easy!

I do have a full-time job and I am so graciously grateful. And, not just a job, but a job that I love and people that I ENJOY seeing every day! I work at a Christian non-profit organization about 45 miles out and it really is a dream. I get to help kids, build strong bonds with them and my co-workers, come together for the greater good of the children and really make a difference in someone’s life ~ All with Christ’s stamp of approval since it is a Christian/Baptist organization. The LORD has provided thanks to my undergrad degree, I am grateful!!
