My Black is Beautiful Challenge #2

This challenge was to make a lo of our home.  I have so much to say about my home purchase.  As a former tenant organizer, I was deep in housing world when I attempted to merge two programs together to purchase my home.  It took 4 years to convince the powers that be in DE to do something think outside of the box.  I had a model because surrounding states (especially MD) had been doing the merger for years. The story is long, colorful and saturated with God's many blessings; and I just couldn't seem to capture it all in a lo.  I did have intentions on making a scrapbook about my house...yeah, uhhh that project is still in my head (LOL).  But if time permits, I may do another lo for this challenge.

The journaling says: There were so many blessings and people that played a part in my home purchase...I was so happy to finally have my very own tree.  God was all in this journey, it was long, hard and definitely a faith walk.  I thank God for loving me so much.  My black is being a beautiful homeowner.  Each popped up leaf has the name of a person, organization or event/action that was significant to helping me become a homeowner. (i.e. pro bono closing, monetary gift from the board of the co I worked for, free attorneys etc.)  There could be many, many more leaves.  I am grateful for so much.  Thank you GOD.
