The Long Awaited Home

“Though You have made me see troubles, many and bitter, You will restore my life again. Psalm 71:20. Making a home with my family in a house we waited for. After going through some tough times and living in an apartment for a couple of years, we hope we have found our forever home. At least until we reach that eternal long awaited home someday. Join my family and I as we make this house our home.”
