No news was bad news....

I got the bad news this morning. The Charlotte couple put a contract on the other house, which is a foreclosure or short sale. This is a huge disappointment to us, but we are trusting in the Lord.

We do having something to look forward to though. The Charlotte couple's realtor is bringing another couple to see the house. They are from out of state and have to put a contract on some sort of property in the next two days because they're doing a 1030 exchange. It's an investment thing. Above my head... BUT it could be exactly what we need- a buyer that is looking for a good investment. Our neighborhood has a good reputation and a desirable place to live. We will pray that our house is what they see making them money in the future. They were supposed to come today, but now they're coming tomorrow between 9 AM and 10 AM. We will be praying. Will you pray with us? We would appreciate it!

Today has been a tough day all around. Samuel was up for the day at 6: 45 AM with a high fever, so we started our day with him taking a tepid bath. I ended up at the doctor's office twice today because of high fevers. The doctor thinks that Jeremy could have given him some germs since Jeremy got sick over the weekend just as Samuel was getting better. Samuel didn't have a fever on Sunday or Monday, but then Tuesday it was back. Thankfully it's not the flu or strep. He was tested for both today. We pray it will be over soon! High fevers are scary! I am praying that the Motrin and Tylenol will get him to rest well tonight. He didn't get a nap today because of the fever being too high to let him sleep. I will have to wake him to medicate during the night, but he is good about going right back to sleep.

I will update tomorrow on the showing IF I have any news, and I will let you know how Samuel is doing.


  1. I am so sorry. I know you are disappointed. Our situations are nothing alike, but I can really feel the disappointment for you. Hoping and praying the next one is the right one.
    I actually get the tax thing. My dad had to do the same thing.
    Hope Samuel is on the mend. Macie seems to have been sick all year, but I think she is finally feeling better-other than the teeth she is getting.

  2. How's Samuel this morning (Thursday)?
