Going Once. Going Twice... SOLD!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd like to report that after 3 weeks on the market, our house is sold! I give glory only to the Lord. Last Friday, we received our first offer. Unfortunately, we just couldn't get to an agreeable place with those buyers, so we had to pass up the deal. Then, last night we received our second offer, and it was much more promising. At about 11:00pm, we accepted the offer and trudged off to bed, tired from the evening's events.

Please continue to pray for these things:
-Our house was built in 1958, so pray that all of the inspections go smoothly. We've updated almost everything in the home, but you just never know.
-Pray that Brian and I will find an affordable place to live for the next few months. We've decided to rent for a while to give us time to really look and exhaust all of our options.
-Pray that God would give us the strength and energy to pack all of our belongings.
-Pray for a smooth deal that would go to closing.

We covet your intercession! Thank you for staying tuned...
