and everything halts

Oh, man. We have had a very disappointing week that just got more disappointing today. But I cant quite get too disappointed because I can see God in it all. And I am very at peace, although disappointed.

We found a GREAT house on Monday, actually one we had seen on line for a while but had not gotten around to looking at it. When we arrived we couldnt believe how much better it was than what the pictures portrayed. Vaulted ceilings, an unfinished basement perfect for Nate's studio, and a big open living space. Not to mention it was very under priced because it had been sitting empty for several months. We were thrilled! We went right home, worked the numbers and decided to make an offer the very next day at noon.

Upon arrival we learned that just two hours earlier they had received a bid. A house that just sat there for months suddenly got a bid that very morning! So they were willing to take our bid and then compare the two. We bid, and lost, so unfortunately the house was gone. So disappointing!! It was literally 4 minutes from Luxie's preschool, 10 minutes from church and I had just learned a friend from church with two kids the same age as mine was moving minutes away. Needless to say we were sad. But we knew that God was in control and that we had given it over to him. For some reason that house wasnt for us.

And today we found out why. The contract on our house fell thru. Our house is no longer "under contract" and is back on the market. So disappointing. It is sooo hard to start from scratch! Back at square one! Continuing that 40 minute drive to Luxie's school twice a week and 20 minute drive to church several times a week. But we now know why we didnt get the first one, thanks be to God for his protection in that matter. And we will keep looking and hoping and trusting. But.....ugh. So disappointing.

God has something very special for you four and it is not time for you to sell the house. The Lord has a plan for you, as you all well know. We love you all.
