Friday morning my husband and I drove to our realtor's office. In a conference room was our realtor, the realtor for the property we purchased and a woman from our title company. We signed papers for an hour. After all the signing was done the realtor for the property we purchased handed us the key. Property purchases here in Colorado are much different from California. In California we always have dealt with escrow companies. We never once dealt with an escrow company here in Colorado.
We left the office, got in our car and drove to the house. In the refrigerator the previous owners had left us a bottle of champagne to celebrate. We are so blessed of the Lord. Everything with the purchase went smoothly and our house payment is going to be less than what we have been paying in rent. Praise God!!
In the afternoon my men began loading up all their manly tools and whatnot. While they were doing that a girlfriend of mine called. She said she was close by and wanted to visit. She came with her pick-up truck, so we loaded up my patio table and chairs, my potted flowers and various garden items. We joyfully took them over to the new house and set them in the backyard. Then I gave her a tour of the house. I am so blessed that the Lord let me share my joy with her.
