YIKES!!!


i'm stressing here ... yes, in this lovely little home pictured above ... see the light in the smaller window? that is where i sit as i type this ... our computer room and spare bedroom ...

and why am i stressing in this picture perfect location? well, our real estate agent brought us an offer for our home today ...

not too long ago i mentioned that no one had come to see our place ... we were going to take it off the market on Monday and put it up again in the spring ... well, on Sunday some folks did come by ... and today they made an offer ... we counter-offered ...

that's all i know ... except that i have little nervous tingles happening ... not that i'm worried - our future is in God's hands ... it's just that i would like to take a little peek ahead and see how it turns out!

so my Christmas cards are only half done ... the baking is left on the back burner ... and we don't have a place to move if this plays out!

if you think of me ... could you ask the Lord to give us wisdom and peace through this process ... thank you!

and if i seem a little fuddled - well, now you know why!

Prayers for right decisions~! And this had to come after the snow flew! I surely hope you have some people to help you move, if this goes through...and even if you need to rent for a time...you know we can "make do" for the short term in lots of situations! Blessings...and for that matter if this is to be...perhaps you will quickly find just the exact right place closer to town!!

Gorgeous home, Saija. No matter how this plays out, you will carry with you so many memories, I'm sure. So someone offered on the day you agreed to take the house off the market? wow. Perhaps that is an answer to prayer? Sometimes we don't always get the answer we want or even expect. I'll pray for you both that the right decision is made - I'll pray that your hearts are open to hear what God is instructing you to do. And I"ll pray that it is easily carried out. :)

*hugs hugs hugs*
