The welcome mat is coming out...


(But I guess we'll need to buy a welcome mat first.) Good news:


And you're all invited to get excited about it! We sure are. The Lord has really blessed us with this new development in our lives - it goes something like this:

As geno and I were looking into/praying about/thinking about possibly one day maybe someday buying a house, we were approached by a couple in our church who asked if we would be interested in renting a house from them. We certainly weren't opposed to the idea and as we began to pray about it, the Lord kept closing the buying doors and opening up these doors. (Thanks, Jesus!) So we went over there today to check out the place and talk to our prospective landlords and, wouldn't you know it, we are in love with the place. Among the many, many great things about this house and the situation in general, there is one thing that has me more excited than anything else: fruit. That's right, fruit. Meyer lemons, oranges, apricots (swoon!), grapes, blackberries (double swoon!!), and pears. It's a little "country" house on just over half an acre, but not really very far into the country. I mean, there's an apartment complex about 400 yards away on one side and a large church about a half-mile away on the other side.

We didn't get a chance to take any pictures yet, but we hope to do so tomorrow or sometime very soon. Rest assured, we'll show them to you. But for now we're just getting excited. I mean, we'll miss Beryl's newsletters, but I think we'll make it.

    Congrats! I can't wait to come visit. The fruit trees sound amazing. Who knew a small farm was in your future?!
