There is a good selection of homes available in this affordable price range at the price you want to pay, and there are six great Texas towns to choose from.  It's an easy commute to Dallas should you want to go. The cool thing about living in these small towns is they all have that hometown feeling, and a sense of community.  The schools rank high by academic standards, and sports programs with football, basketball, tennis, track, and golf has a sport for every one.   Marching bands are popular, and choirs, their productions are well attending, with standing applause, wanting more! These six towns have that hometown feeling, and are like a community.  There is good shopping, dining, and entertaining, so why go to Dallas?    Homes in Rockwall Homes in Royse City Homes in Heath Homes in ...

There is a Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program with Rockwall TX FHA 203K Loans.     Many people are not aware of a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration or FHA(a department within HUD). This FHA loan program allows the buyer or existing owner of a home to do significant amounts of remodeling or updating to their home without a higher cost second lien.         However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. Repaint, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, add wallpaper, replace appliances and flooring and even a add a room to an existing structure (which will increase the value of the homes square footage).         This loan program has many advan...

PUMPKIN PATCH IN ROCKWALL, TEXAS   The Pumpkin Patch in Rockwall is the perfect way to  start the fall season.  Children love picking out their own pumpkins, and love going home to start carving it according to their own creative imagine. Over the years I have taken my grandchildren, and it was the high light of the day.  It is interesting how each child carved their pumpkin. There were happy faces, scary faces, and down right demon like faces.  The tip to getting your pumpkins carved is to outline it with a marker so you can carefully follow the design, rather than just starting to carve without a detailed plan. The Pumpkin Patch in Rockwall has been here for twenty five years, and remains a great way for children to start off the Halloween season.  Open daily from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM t...

Psalm 39, psalm of David. I said, "I will watch my ways, and put a muzzle on my mouth while in the  psalm of David I said, "I will watch my ways; and  while in the presence of of the Lord. I will put a muzzle on my mouth while in the in the presence ."  So I remained utterly silent, not even saying anything good.  But my anguish  increased;  I remained utterly silent, not even saying anything good.  But my anguish  increased; my heart grew hot within me. While I mediated, the fire turned; and I spoke with my tongue; "Show me, Lord, Lord,  and I spoke with my tongue; "Show me, Lord, my life's end and the number of my days; and the number of my days let me know how fleeting my life is. You have made me made my life days a mere hand breath; the span of my years is as nothing before you. E...

  When an out of town Buyer hires me to preview properties I am BOLD WITH PASSION.     If a Buyer is trying to sell their home in another state, they are counting on me to be prepared and to know what they want. A Buyer expects me to have properties that meet their criteria when they arrive. That is why I act BOLDLY WITH PASSION even when I preview without them.     It is better to be an example of boldness against passion than to give insult to a Buyer by sending them listings I did not preview. My buyers are counting on me to be their eyes, ears, nose and to know they don't have time to waste. Time is of the essence when you move out of state. I am looking for 3 or more acres in the Dallas Metroplex, horses permitted, 4 bedrooms, barn and workshop. A second master bedroom or Guest Hou...

LIFE AFTER DEATH Philippians 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. From my daily devotional from Billy Graham  Hope for Each Day.  I have asked a number of scientists questions concerning life after death, and most of them say, "We just do not know."  Science deals deals in formulas and test tubes.  But there is a spiritual world science knows nothing about.  Because many do not believe in life after death, we find writings filled with tragedy and pessimism.  The writings of William Faulkner, James Joyce, and many others are filled with pessimism, darkness, and tragedy.  Sadly, he same was often true of their lives.  How different from Jesus Christ who said, "I am the resurrection and the life.  He whoever in Me, though he may die shall never die."  John 11:25-26 Our ho...
