house update

**UPDATE**micah talked to the inspector and the realtors. turns out that the couple decided to back out before getting the report. the inspector said our house was nice and well taken care of. the wiring he was talking about was to the appliances. turns out that outside of madison county, electrical inspections aren't required up here. what we have is up to code, but it could be a grade better i guess. he said it was easily fixable and could be done in a day. he even called an electrician while here to be sure he was right and it was not a big issue. apparently they just wanted out. so we are gonna keep it up for sale until august 1st. if it hasn't sold by then, we will take it off of the market until next march so that luke's school isn't interrupted this year and go from there. thanks for your prayers. i really appreciate them. we are sad that we'll lose the other house, but God will provide.

Even though the whole concept is a nightmare, I hope you are reassured that the other people just backed out and not that anything is wrong with your house. God has a plan, and He will provide!

aw becky. so sorry to hear. i know that is disappointing. obviously there is something better ahead for you, if it's moving now or waiting a year. take comfort in the fact that you have a God who LOVES you and wants only the very best for you. He can see the future while we can't and he knows the plans to prosper you!

Becky, I have been so sad for you. I know it is so frustrating to go back and forth and not know what is going on. I'm so sorry that the sale didn't go through. I will be praying that it will sell this summer and that you all will have time to get settled in a new house before school starts!

I'm so sorry. Really so sorry.

Although it doesn't make it any easier...you know God knows what he is doing. This only means there are better things ahead.
But, be sure to put your face in a pillow and scream as loud as you can and then eat a BIG OL bowl of ice cream and pout for about a couple of days. That's what I would do.

Oh Beck. I am so sad for you. Literally slumped over and just sad. I know Kera is right, though, that God's plans are better than ours, but sometimes don't you want to scream and show God the school calendar?? I know I do...
Love you and will keep you and the the situation lifted up in prayer.

I'm so sorry. Everything happens for a reason. There must be a even better house waiting for you and an even better offer on your house :)

That stinks.. Just stinks.. I'm praying for ya'll. You must be exhausted. Trying to keep a house ready to show all the time is so tiring!

I am so excited about seeing you and meeting all of your little people :). It won't be long. We're actually going to have to leave on Saturday afternoon. Adam is going to camp on Sunday. But hopefully we'll get to visit on Sat. morning?

Love you girl.
