I am here to say that today is one of the those days that makes me want to dance, sing, cry, shout, and laugh but I am to shocked to do any of these things because I’m in awe. Today is also one of those days that not only reassures us that everything is possible but it also seems to have wrapped up all of our hopes and dreams into a wonderful gift. A gift that we will be able to call our own because we will be able to build it. A gift that we will call home. Home; a place where we could always come back to, where we will surely smell the aroma of my mother’s cooking, where we would be able to find rest, the place that we will be able create fond memories of hard work and laughter. A gift that we would share.
We are so grateful for all of this. It has always been one of those dreams that we have tried so hard to reach, but have always come out looking disillusioned because no matter how hard we tried, we have always come back disappointed. It has been hard, but I guess that the Lord had everything already planned out.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
Yes he has given us a future and hope. He will be giving us a home, and he has given us friends who will help us. We are so grateful for all of you who will join us in making our dream come true. We don’t know how we will ever be able to repay all of you for your gratitude. Thank you and above all thank you Lord.
