Thoughtful Thursdays: Blessings

What a week. Things have been crazy here, with an abundant overflow of blessings in our lives. Let me share with you what God has done in our lives this week:





1) WHEEL OF FORTUNE! Back in the spring, the Wheelmobile came to our city, and Zack and I went to the auditions! Zack was chosen out of a hat to get to audition, the producers loved him, and he got called to another audition, but he couldn't make it, so they said I could go! After making it through all the rounds, two weeks later, I got my acceptance letter to be a contestant! They said a producer would call me within 18 months to schedule my tape date. Well, they called this week!!! I will be flying to L.A. at the end of October, get to go on the set, meet Pat and Vanna, and spin THE wheel!!! At that point, I will find out when it will be airing. HELP! what should I wear?





2) HOUSE INSPECTION! We had our "new" house inspected this week for one last chance to back out if the deal of there was something seriously wrong that we couldn't see about the house. The inspection went GREAT with a few minor repairs, and most of it being paid by the seller! We close two days after we come back from our trip in November!



3) HOUSE RENTER! Now that we've bought this "new" house, we decided to try renting out the one we currently live in and just finished flipping out. We have been in prayer about who would live there, if anyone. Well, God is awesome and has a perfect plan...he has already provided a family to rent out our house! They go to the seminary with Zack and also to our church!!!

And oh, PS...all of this happened within 2 hours on Tuesday :) CRAZY times!!!
