The process is starting

Ok... this is a new thing... I am actually blogging with words and not pictures. :o)

Ok, here goes. We are finally starting the process of finding our very own home. We are so excited. Nervous, but excited. This has been something we have wanted to do for a very long time, but never have been in the situation or have the opportunity to be able to do so. We have officially made the phone call to a good friend of ours who will be working with us to start the financial side of getting a home. Once this side of it is done, then we will know what the bank says our loan can be. Then off to dream and search for the new Pratt home. We are so excited to get to have a home. A home to continue our traditions. A home that has Caitlyn and Micah's room made just for them. And home that we can call our own. We love to entertain and have people over and spend time with our friends and family. Also, we lead a college/singles community group and I am sure they are looking forward to the ritual of coming to our house every sunday night again instead of wondering where we will meet each week.
We have had, and continue to have the opportunity to spend time and live with Daniel's parents who have been wonderful to us throughout this time of "prepping" for a new home. We will be forever grateful to them for their help. Also for the support and help from BOTH of our parents we will forever be grateful. I know they read this blog so I would like to publicly say thank you. :o)
What I would like to ask of you is for your prayers. Please pray for God's guidance in this home hunt. That we are wise with picking this house, where we plan to live for a long time. Have I mentioned that we have moved 7 times in the 6 1/2 years that Daniel and I have been married? Goodness, that is another story. :o) Also that when He shows us the home He has picked for us, that we hear Him clearly and stay in His will.
Thank you friends and family for your support and love to us. We love you all.
