"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!" -Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

A Diamond in the Ruff
Yes, it has been a very long time since I've posted, but I'm here now! Well, a lot of things have happened and we are very excited! Recently we found out our apartment rent was going up and Adam and I did not like that at all. We really didn't like the idea of renting and throwing our money away, so we decided to start looking for our first house. Monday, we sent an email to Adam's Uncle who's a realtor and by Friday we were looking at our first houses. Looking for a house can be very emotional! We thought we had found something Friday, but I wasn't completely sold on it (I didn't have that feeling), I also said that night that I really think there is a diamond in the rough out there somewhere and we had just not found it yet.
Saturday was a completely different story. We had a couple of houses to look at and the last house we looked at was a WINNER! Adam and I definatly had that feeling of "this is it" as soon as we walked in the front door. It is a beautiful remodeled home that is in a very established and appealing neighborhood. I believe that it is absolutly PERFECT for us. So, to make a long story short, we decided to make an offer on it because we knew it would be gone very fast! Come to find out, there was already an offer on it by other potential buyers. BUMMER! But, we decided to at least give it a chance and make an offer...well, Saturday night we faxed the offer in and we won't know until probably Monday afternoon if the sellers have accepted it or not. The other potential buyers could counter our offer in which case we would back out of it. This house is definately the "diamond in the ruff" I was talking about and Adam and I are praying hard that everything will work out to our advantage.
We also need all the prayer we can get because I truly believe in the power of prayer and everything that it can do. Please pray that if is God's will that we have this house we would continue to have the wisdom we need in making our decisions; if it is not His will, pray that He would clearly close the door and that we would understand. We definatly want Him to be glorified throughout this process and it is our promise that He will be glorified through everything we do and everything we have. We are very excited about all this and hopefully we will have some good news Monday or Tuesday! We'll see!
