the shaw ultimatum


As you all know we are in the midst of purchasing a house ... some of you may NOT know that the secondary market 'crashed' this week making it exceptionally difficult for us to close our loan. Especially due to the fact that the company that 'purchased' our loan closed it's doors on Tuesday - leaving all of the people that were trying to close loans thru them high and dry. One might think that this is a sign that we are NOT supposed to buy this house. In addition, we are having ZERO luck selling our townhouse, we've had TONS of people looking but not one offer!

I guess my question is - when do you chalk it up to bad timing/market mayhem and when do you say to yourself "someone's trying to tell me something!!" ?!?

All I can say is this. I KNOW the Lord cares where we live and where our kids are raised. My family has learned that time and again (our move to Seattle is a prime example).

Go with what FEELS right. If the new house still feels right, move forward. If you have a lot of doubts and things just don't feel right you better sit-up and pay attention.

However, I know these things are usually easier said then done. I wish you luck (and divine guidance)!

I totally agree with Amy's comment. It is amazing the way things work out sometimes. Even if they seem frustrating in the moment! Is there a verdict yet?

I'm sorry this has caused you guys so much angst! All I can say is that I hope you end up in the perfect house for you (on the eastside). ;)

Emily, one thing I have learned is...do everything YOU can do and then turn it over to the Lord. We did that with the adoption back in 2000. Yes, that adoption didn't turn out the way we had hoped (having to give the baby back after a week), BUT there were many miracles BEFORE and that was because, We did OUR part and HE did his.
