I guess it's official. Well, technically it's been official for about 20 days, but...we're selling our house. Or at least trying to sell our house. Selling would mean that we're in the process of signing a contract with someone else. Trying to sell is where we are now.
The house looks amazing. And I'm not trying to sell it to y'all (but if you're interested in an amazingly-priced, awesome house in north Louisiana, hit me up), but it looks gorgeous. Kyle and I, along with some generous, kind friends and family members have been working to make sure the house is in tip-top shape for its open house this coming Sunday. It's received a semi-professional paint job, had new door frames put on, has been steam-cleaned, polished, and emptied. I'm going to admit, the house has never been prettier.
It's been quite a headache trying to sell. I'm very impatient (who knew, right? lol), and I've had to rely on God for this because, as Kyle and I are both struggling with, we cannot control this. God knows whether or not we will sell and when that happy day will come. I've been talking with Him about this a lot, and I've had to realize two facts: 1. God knows I want to sell our house. 2. God knows if that's the right thing or not. And while I could sit here and say, "I know it's the right thing," I don't know. I'm clueless. =) But thank goodness Someone does know and Someone is looking out for me.
At any rate, please pray for us as we go through this process during the heat and humidity of a Louisiana summer. Pray that we listen to God and follow His will. I would like His will to be selling the house, but pray that we are wise and good listeners in this situation.
And today...we paint trim! ;)
