house hunt part 3

well, we found a house in our price range that we like and will fit our family.  that's exciting.  we put an offer in for full asking price and the next day found out that with the price of insurance and etc. that it would be above our price range.  :(  bummer.  sad day.  true story.
so then the NEXT DAY after that,  our real estate agent called and said, "why don't you find out what you are approved for and we'll offer that amount.  we don't have anything to loose!"

so we did.  and the amount was 10 thiggidy thousand dollars less than the full asking price.  and on Monday, I got a call that the seller ACCEPTED THAT OFFER. 

so... it's a short sale so we don't necessarily have a home owning experience in our future, but we COULD!!!!  the seller's lender still has to accept our offer and that could take another couple weeks to a month.  then the rest of the process could take another 5 months (or even more!).  we'll continue to be patient along this journey, but I totally want to share that our God is so awesome that He will protect us from spending an extra 10K on a house if we don't have to!  He has our best interest at heart.  every time.  'cause he loves us.  and I LOVE HIM!
