We hit a snag...

But we still keep trucking. So we have spent some time every business day for the last week getting paperwork in order for the closing on our house...and even today we were running around...so we were getting frustrated but seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with closing being scheduled at 1pm today...and then we found out they had to reschedule for 4pm, needing more time to get the loan in order...then we found out that closing will be tomorrow b/c they did all of the paperwork in the wrong sales amount...by $3,000...yikes! So, tomorrow we will buy our house...WHAT A DAY! Our realtor was nearly in tears when she told us we had to delay closing another day...it was one of those moments when you have to remember how much grace God has extended to you...and then be ready to do the same. They screwed up. There is no getting around it, but I just couldn't help but think..."this is a moment to be Christ to these people" and to remember that I too, am a screw-up...and I was able to not cry, yell or show my frustration in any unhealthy way, which considering the day we had already had, was pretty much a miracle! So, keep us in your prayers that we will continue to be Christ to our realtors and mortgage people...and that we WILL buy our house tomorrow. I can't believe it...we are going to OWN A HOME...or at least 3% of it...hehe

Did it actually happen yesterday? I was thinking about you and praying for you. I'm so proud of the way that you handled the realtor's mistake- You showed God's grace and love to him/her when it would have been so much easier to demand justice and show anger. Definitely the Holy Spirit working in your life. I'm proud of you and I miss you so much!
