  Here is my miracle story to share...

Years ago we had so much and we got into a mess and lost everything.  So my MIRACLE today is we are able to buy a home....   We will close by the 15th March. (praying to God it will happen)  We were able to move in recently and we love our home which is so much more than what we had before... ( the dates on pics is the first time we looked at the home.)
a huge corner lot  - front - back and sides - is this not awesome!!  Our garage is on the side. 

KITCHEN - see this HUGE fireplace and the patio doors going outside to back yard!!  
loooove it!!  even has a sitting area in the corner by the fireplace.  lil TV is perfect!

front of kitchen  -cabinets galore!!  we thought we'd never fill these cabinets all up  -we were wrong!!  lol  and under the island is a cellar. NOW..  mind you you have to climb under it to get down there - BUT with some cleaning  -we will put emergency things down there if ever a need for a horrible tornado...  

part of our back yard. I LOVE the roof over the sitting area!! - can't wait to sit under it and enjoy the summer.  We've moved all the wood to another part (came with the home)  -so it gives up more room!  Trampoline has lots of room now!  Hubby's Grill has it's own space! 

this is the basement  -it has carpet now and seems to be where everything is at as we still unpack..  MY craft room and a sitting area is here as well as a bathroom and to the back is a nice big bedroom which is ours.   so literally the whole downstairs is mine and hubby's and area for tornado hiding!!
HUGE garage..  you can't see all the built in shelves, tall cabinet nor the workbench in this pic  -but hubby is happy!!
old garage NOW PLAYROOM - now with carpet! and lots of room that leads down to the basement...   have the TV with all his Wii games, etc on that cabinet shelf  and all family games all in one place!!     Door leads to the other side of outside!!
LAUNDRY ROOM -  used to be the kitchen.  washer/dryer across from these cabinets with MORE cabinets.  WE LOVE IT!!  the room isn't very big BUT the room right off this used to be the area for the fridge, stove and table.  So we have this space in between the kitchen and living room.

We also have more to this home but enough pics - We have plenty of repairs and things to change - but that will come with time and money...

 MY hubby even has him MAN CAVE room!  filled with football, basketball and his other manly stuff with a TV and microwave!!

 We are truly blessed and we consider it a MIRACLE as we never thought we'd ever have our own home again and THEN to have a BIGGER home with so much more than we had before!!  THANK YOU GOD!!!!  WE ARE BLESSED!
