Well, friends, life's been a bit unexpected around here lately. We were all set to move this time last week but things got pushed back. And, today, I'll be greeting the movers at our front door to pack up all our belongings but instead of sending them to our new address, they'll be taking our
junk precious commodities to storage.
The bank and the appraiser are having difficulty seeing eye to eye. And, our contract which has been granted a week extension already, expires tomorrow. We're holding our breath today that this only means a handful more days until closing, but the sad reality is that the sellers could very easily tell us their done and ready to wash their hands of us. Or, the bank will decide they don't want to agree with the appraiser and deny the loan. Our lender said he's "NEVER seen this type of situation."
Thankfully, John and I are at peace. If this falls through, it'll be extremely sad, but we have to see it as God's will. We were so convinced this house was a gift from Him, and maybe it still is. But, the circumstances of the last week have been extremely odd and very much out of our control.
We'll continue to pray our way through this and seek His guidance. It's a very surreal feeling to be leaving our house with a month's worth of clothes and nothing else!
