We sold our house!

With in a week of our house being on the market we had and offer and accepted the second offer at 8 days!  What an amazing miracle of God.  That just doesn't happen in todays market.  Selling houses can take months and months.

Since this time we have gone through the main house inspection last night and now how a furnace cleaning and inspection tomorrow and a septic tank cleaning and inspection on Tuesday.  But the main inspection is done so nothing to do after these couple things.  

All that is left to do is to find and buy a new house and pack up all the stuff in our house and move it to the new one.  (Well me are moving into my parents duplex in Lake Stevens in the mean time... because it may not be so smooth like that.)  

This week we looked at a couple houses.  One on Sunday and one on Monday.  The one on Sunday felt really yucky inside.  It was falling apart, smelled like cat pee and looked like the people tortured cats by keeping them under a bench seat and locked in the pantry... both were all scratched up.  It was awful.  That real estate agent told us it would cost at least 20,000 to make it livable and it was already at the top of our range for expenses.  The second house we looked at Monday was better but had it's problems too.  Half melted microwave, Moldy wall in the bathroom, windows that needed to be replaced, a deck that was falling apart and it was right next to a busy road.

Tomorrow I am going out looking again with our New real estate person.  She is going to show me a few houses that I picked out of the ones she picked out.  I am praying that I will find one in that group and that it will be one that will except an offer.

Chris and I really want a home that is large enough so that we can expand the ministry and be able to bring people into our home for Bible study and worship.  That would be a dream come true for both of us.  We are praying that God will have the perfect house for us.

Dear Lord God, thank you for the speedy sale of our house.  Lord we ask that you help this process continue through and help it to go smoothly.  Please help us to pack up and be ready to move when we need to and help us to find the best house for our baby and our ministry.  Thank you Lord for all you are doing!  In Jesus name, Amen!

  1. Dear Father I just want to come and offer a quick prayer asking for your hand to be in this move. We trust that you have a new beautiful home already picked out for Chris and Kristin and their new child. We ask Lord that you would reveal that home as quickly as possible please Lord to relieve any unecessary stresses. Thank you for hearing our prayers. Amen
