Cause for Celebration

Here's our special bottle of Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon that we bought to celebrate the closing on our house in Illinois -- that was back in August. I felt like drinking it (and about 3 more!) when our offer fell through the day before closing, but Brad made me save it!

Well, we now have MANY reasons to be happy...and celebrate. I got a phone call last Thursday morning & was surprised to hear our Realtor tell me that we had an offer on our house. We were so excited. Then, we got ANOTHER offer. At this point, we were in shock. In shock. What else could happen, you might ask? We got someone who qualified to rent our house too. It was incredible & we are so thankful. So, we are under contract.

We opened the wine & thoroughly enjoyed every drop. We decided that would be our "we're under contract" wine & to celebrate the closing, we're going out on the town! Celebrate Korean style...

Thank you for all your thoughts & prayers! Praise GOD!

Psalm 66: 1-5
Shout joyfully to God, all the earth;
Sing the glory of His name;
Make His praise glorious.
Say to God, How awesome are your works!
Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will give feigned obedience to You.
All the earth will worship You,
And will sing praises to You;
They will sing praises to Your name.

Bloggy love,
