In just two weeks....

We will be homeless! That is right, we came to terms on the house. The Lord was extremely generous to us, and the buyers agreed to pretty close to what we were asking! The even crazier part is that they want to close SEPTEMBER 6th. This was already going to be a busy next few weeks, and now we also have to pack our home up and move! So don't expect too much from me the next two weeks.....I will be a packing machine!

Whooo Hoooo!

After being homeless from 11 until 7 today, having FOUR showings, and rearranging LiAnns whole house, we recieved an offer! And we are actually pretty sure we will get one tomorrow as well. So we are going to wait and see what the offer tomorrow brings and see if we can come to an agreement with one of them! So it is looking like after only 18(!) days on the market we will have this Old Girl under contract!

House Ponderings....

So these past few weeks as we have been getting the house ready to sell, and now that it is on the market I find that I catch myself getting anxious about where we will live. It comes in spurts, some days better than others but I still do it. Why would I mock my maker, Why would I think that my plan is better than his, and most of all Why do I doubt his love for me? Yesterday I stumbled upon the verse in Jeremiah, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. He has a plan for ME, and he plans to prosper ME and to not harm ME, plans to give ME hope, and a future. If that doesn't humble me and help me to keep my eyes fixed on the cross....I don't know what would. What a great, merciful God we have!! So I guess that answers the question that most people ask, Where are you going to live? I dunno, where ever the Lord blesses us with! And it will be perfect because it is a gift from Him!

On a side note, after all the mortgage market worry and craziness on Friday activity has defiantly slowed down....but that is fine....It is giving me more time to enjoy this last season in our FIRST house!
Also here is a link for the house in MLS, I can't believe how bright the colors look. Are they that bright in real life??

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13

And here she is........


We are finally on the market! We had a showing within the first 24 hours it was on the market, which was encouraging! It is definitely interesting when we get the appointment phone call, or just when we leave the house, It is a mad rush to get the kids and dog in the car and get the house immaculate! Not something I would recommend. So that is it for us now, just getting this baby sold!
