Goodbye to Alabama...Sweet Home Alabama...

Hello All!

Well, we are heading to Austin, TX a week from Monday. Crazy huh?? We are so happy! God has been SO good to us! The last couple of days has been a whirlwind for us. We have had lots of people look at our house. Our real estate Agent, Jana Calloway(Keller Williams) did a wonderful job! If any of you need a good real estate agent...she is GREAT! We did not list with her until two weeks before Christmas. So, our house has been on the market for about a month and a half and it has been shown about 15 times. Anyways, to make a long story short we decided to rent out townhome. I truly believe it was a God thing. I feel bad for all the hard work that Jana has put into selling our house, but this family has committed to a year lease and the rent will more than cover our mortgage payment. But we also had an offer that we denied. So, within two days someone looked at our house twice made an offer, AND someone looked at our house to rent it and committed to renting it for a year. BIG decision but God made it visible to us.
So, on Monday Feb. 18th, we will be moving to Austin, TX with my brother and his family. I am so excited yet so sad for all the family(mom and dad), friends, and memories we are leaving here. BUT there are a few thoughts that comfort me. One, I am positive that my parents will move eventually. Two, although I am leaving some GREAT friends I will make some great friends in Texas. Three, I will finally be living next to my sister, brothernlaw, and nephews. And last but not least, God is going to use Free Chapel to change the city of Austin.
This is a bittersweet "goodbye" to what we are leaving behind, but we will be back. Don't forget, we do still own our townhouse here. Ha ha! :)
