For Sale

For anyone who has read Maggie's blog recently, you know that our house is up for sale now.  It officially went on the market April 30th.  It's a very bittersweet time, because I'm excited about what God has in store for us, but on the other hand I'm sad to leave family, friends, etc.  We'll only be moving 4 hours away so that makes it nice for visits, whether it be us coming back or people coming to see us...HINT HINT!

We had a showing on Saturday and Wednesday.  Reality is setting in.  We're really moving.  But let's make it even more realistic with this little detail....

Last night's viewer has placed an offer on the house!  What?!  The house hasn't even been on the market a week!  It's really exciting to see how God is working everything out, but it's kinda scary too at how fast things are happening.  Oh, and did I mention this guy wants the house by May 31st??  If this goes through, we won't even have the normal 30 days.  Haha...the funny part is that he offered to let us rent OUR house if we can't get out that fast. 


I know this is what God wants for us and I'm excited about it, but it's kinda scary at the same time.  We've talked about how it would be nice if the Lord allowed our house to sell quickly so we could just move and get it over with.  Now, it's like He's answering those prayers, but yet it seems like it's happening TOO fast. a friend pointed out, God's not going to allow anything to happen that He won't enable us to get through. 

A really neat thing about it is that we were hoping to get our house on the market the beginning of April, but ended up needing more time.  During the past few weeks we've been watching the price drop drastically on the house we're looking at!  So if you think about it, what if we got our house on the market when we originally planned and it sold right away?  The house we're looking at would still have been the original price it was when we first started looking at it.  The Lord knew that house would drop in price, so it's like He just held us off long enough for it to happen.  God's timing is always best! 

So, as you can imagine things are a bit crazy around here. =)  My parents go meet with our realtor tomorrow to talk about our counter offer.  I know several of you are already praying for us right now...your prayers are definitely appreciated.  This is a huge change in our lives, and it could become very real very soon! 

Oh...I realized this is my 100th blog post. Yay!! 


  1. May 31st!!! Your mom didn't say anything about that last night in her email. O my!!! I did tell her that he needs to be saved and looking for a 31 year old wife before they sign the papers though;) LOL. *sigh* I know God's will is best, but this is really fast and making me a bit sad. <3 U

  2. Wow that's so amazing that they got an offer so quickly! PTL! Now hopefully you will get the house you want to buy.

    God's timing really is perfect!
