The promised land has been reached…well, we have moved into our new apartment. We are very happy to be here.
When we first began to look, someone suggested making a list of things I wanted in an apartment. Not just the necessities, but the wants as well. God is a big and gracious Father, a father that delights in giving to His children.
So on January 23rd I made my list:
Two bedrooms, room for a King size bed, a balcony or some outdoor space, provision for gas stove, extra parking, no gaudy decorating (that is another story), laundry not in kitchen, storage room, under budget, floor to ceiling windows. After looking at many apartments, I was discouraged because every place seemed to have some compromise. No gas stoves allowed, or laundry in the kitchen, or bedrooms too small for a kingsize bed. We even saw an apartment with NO closets, NONE…and bedrooms too small for bed and wardrobes. Oh and there was the one with cockroaches in the kitchen… Until we looked at our current apartment. I knew right away this was the one.
God has graciously provided all of the items on my list. AND there is a grocery store IN our building, our building is IN FRONT of a metro station, and we have a “to die for” view of the Marina, and the sea. There are over a hundred restaurants and cafes all in walking distance. There is a gym and a pool in IN our building. AND the beach is a 20 minute walk. Thank you Lord for your gifts!
We are settling in nicely, IKEA is my friend!! Here is a tour.
We love hospitality. If you are planning a trip to Dubai, let us know!
