Gratituesday - House
Well, last Thursday we had an offer.
It wasn't a very good offer but...
An offer in hand is worth something.
So we countered.
And then they counter-countered.
And, even though it's still a little disappointing, we've agreed.
Apparently, the price point that was "as low as we could possibly go" is also the point that is "as much as they can possibly afford" but the buyer really likes the house.
So we're trusting that it was God who helped that to happen (for both of us, sellers and buyers).
Now we're signing papers and waiting for inspections and figuring out what happens to us next. And did I mention waiting? 'Cause there is a lot of waiting involved in selling a house. (If I've learned one thing in the past year, it's that.)
Did I mention that our closing date is less than two weeks before our baby is due?
Crazy times, folks.
And God is working in them all the time.
We've started looking for the next "new to us" house. We're praying that maybe there might just be a miracle and the house that we really wanted last year might become available again. (Stranger things have happened!) We're preparing the girls to live in an apartment or rental house for a while. ("But you said we would buy a new house!" One of our daughters felt we had pulled a bait-and-switch on her. Oops.)
So, we don't exactly know what happens next. We hope things go smoothly and the offer goes through (although we're not taking that for granted). And most of all, we are grateful.
