We put our house on the market and two days later, we had a contract for sale. We have the termite inspection and the home inspection. Life is good. Until I get a phone call at lunchtime Friday. While I’m celebrating the 35 year career of my assistant director, whose retirement party I am at, I get “THE” call. The call from Steve, our wonderful realtor, saying that the buyer’s loan fell through. WHAT THE HECK!!! I mean, I have a copy of the pre-approval for the $150K that they need for the loan.
So, life happened to our buyers and happened for us. I have to say that Steve (did I mention how wonderful he is?) is doing a fabulous job reassuring us and assuring us that he will have another buyer this week so that we can close at the end of February, because we are moving to our apartment, which we just finished getting background checks and paying money for. I got the movers all scheduled. We’re packing. Come H-E-double hockey sticks we are moving!
So, now not only am I learning to have patience, but I’m learning to have faith. I know that God has wonderful things for the Sandmeyer family. I know that everything didn’t fall neatly into place to have it fall apart. I saw two really great pictures on Facebook today. You’ve seen this one before:
My comment on this picture was “Hallelujah!!! Waiting in the hallway for our next buyer!!!” And we are. We are praising God in the hallway and waiting on our new buyer confident that we are moving in February and our home will be sold at that time.
I was able to show the house to a gentleman, who stopped by the house this afternoon with his 4 year old daughter. He was interested in it and said he was going to call his realtor. I didn’t know that people had been contacting our realtor and asking about our house even with it under contract. Steve called and emailed everyone and told them it was back on the market. I mean, really, how wonderful is he?!?!
So, that’s my last two days. Fun, fun, fun!!! All I know is that God is good and He’s in control, so I’m going to trust Him and His plan for this because it’s going to be a billion, trillion times better than I could even imagine.
