LOVEI think it's just incredible that anyone loves me... or you... or anyone other than themselves for that matter. HOW IS IT POSSIBLE?Even if you are not "churched" what was the very first thing you were taught about God as a child?                         God is love. Well now we've grown up and we have to rationalize that there must be more to it. We must have to earn it. We must have to clean up our act to be lovable.WRONGWe can love because we were created by God who is love and he created us in His image. Quit trying to be the smartest person in the room when it comes to theology and just remember what you want your children or grandchildren to know, God is LOVE and we can love others (our neighbors) because we are loved.The next time you are down in the dumps and feeling unloved ...

"May your heart be full of love, your pockets full of gold, and your home filled with happiness until you grow old".  Today I wanted to wrap up the 10 Days of Thanksgiving for the 2021 November Challenge but it appears my treasure chest runneth over and they can't be contained.  I've written about 9 things I am thankful for over the last few days but there is so much more that is to spilling out.  There are hundreds of other things I could write about but there are two things I haven't emphasized enough and have truly changed my life. This brings me full circle from Day 1:1) ActiveRain:  I can't even begin to express how grateful I am for this community. The relationships developed over the last few years are like gold to me... better than gold.  It's hard to believe that such strong bo...

I had every good intention to participate in this year's November challenge, but did not find the time to pen my grateful posts.. it's been a wonderfully busy week month. But I am writing this one with the most grateful heart this Thanksgiving morning. I have much to be thankful for. As I glance over my shoulder there's my office buddy, Lenny, the Real Estate Dog, who has become my shadow, my faithful assistant who's quite the buyers magnet! He is very good at posing, smiling, and snoozing on the job. Lennon ranks high up on the list of all I am thankful for. His quiet presence is comforting, his happiness contagious, and his personality inspiring. Lennon doesn't judge. He just loves. Lennon doesn't do upset. He waits patiently for things to calm down. I couldn't possibly ask for a bett...

This is an excellent post with great information. Thanks for sharing it. Have a super fantastic week! Joe Jackson, Realtor-KWCP What is a Zero Down Payment Mortgage? A zero down payment mortgage is exactly what it sounds like: a mortgage that requires no money down at closing. Buying a home and putting no money down to do it sounds appealing to many, but in reality, it’s hard to get a zero down payment mortgage in this climate, as banks no longer offer them to most consumers. Hard, however, doesn’t mean impossible. Here’s how you can score a zero down payment mortgage — and the pros and cons of getting one. Can I Buy a House with No Money Down? Not everyone will qualify for a zero down payment loan, but in circumstances, you might be able to buy a house with no money down. If you’re a v...

This is an excellent post with great information. Thanks for sharing it. Have a super fantastic week! Joe Jackson, Realtor-KWCP Looking for a timeless kitchen design might not work in this modern era. New designs prop out by the day. The real estate market is evolving fast with the kitchen as one of the targets for change. Planning a kitchen renovation should be a fun activity where homeowners explore various kitchen design options. The primary focus should be on cabinets and kitchen equipment. Choosing traditional cabinetry like red kitchen cabinets is an option that can be modernized. There are great ideas that can guide your decision. Top ideas for a modern kitchen Bold colors Modern homeowners are not afraid to try new color schemes. Boldness is one of the defining traits of a moder...
