Forgot to mention this yesterday...
When we met with our realtor, Suzanne, last Friday, she mentioned a family that is moving to the area and said that they will be here this coming weekend to look at homes. Our house is listed in their price range and it is close to where the wife/mom will be working. We are praying that they will be interested in looking at our house and that they will be able to see it this weekend. Please pray with us.
A quick update and some prayer requests...
We made it back to GA Thursday evening. It has been good to see our friends and spend time with them, but it is tough to be here. There are many reminders of a terribly dark time. We are staying at a friend's place and are at our house only to do the things that need doing in order to get it ready to sell. We met with our realtor on Friday morning and took care of all that. We have LOTS to do.
On a very funny note, yesterday at church the pastor, as he always does, invited the little ones to the front so that he could tell them a story before they were dismissed for kids' church. He started out by asking them, "What do you all call each other?" or something to that effect. He quickly moved on with his story when a little boy responded, "My momma calls my dad a jerk." Oh boy...
