Isn't it amazing how our plans can change so suddenly? What is really amazing is that even during a huge change of plans, we can still see the Lord's hand in all we do!
After two weeks with a contract on the cute little farmhouse in Stafford, we had to void the contract. A very hard and sad decision to make, but we know it was the right one. We learned through various home inspectiuons that the foundation of the house (it was 100 years old, after all) was disintegrating. The sellers were willing to make the necessary repairs, so we continued to plan for that house. However, last Sunday morning Dan woke up with a horrible feeling about the house. We discussed it and since I had been having doubts for a few days already, we decided to void the contract and move on with something else. Luckily, there was another great house sitting there just waiting for us (even closer to Dan's office) and we will be closing on the 30th of this month! We just had the home inspection on this house and what a different feeling we have about this one! It will be a great home for our family -- and it shouldn't fall into it's foundation, either!
What a blessing we have received. Not only will we have a great, strong home for our family, but we also had a chance to listen to and obey the promptings of the Spirit. The Lord is always taking care of us and guiding us through this life -- if we will let Him and listen to His counsel.
