Don't Forget to keep praying

Just a little update on our schedule and progress.
The crunch time is here.
We will have to be all out by the 29th so that the floors will be cleared for the carpet cleaners to come in on the 30th---yes, that is this month.
Soooooo I am trying to be good about packing.
I can not be like Scarlett and say I will think about it tomorrow. :)
I am beginning to close things out...phone, cable and other important things.
So by the end of the month no internet for awhile. But I will be back!

We had our FIRST call today about our property in Covington. I got a little excited about that.
That means this whole thing is real.


It is going to happen.
God has a plan and He is watching it through to completion.
The appraiser went out to our other property in Franklinton to get an appraisal together for its sale. We have a guy who is interested in purchasing it already. He owns the lot next door and he has wanted ours for awhile. Both of our lots are located on rivers....so we hope they will go faster. Again...God has someone already picked out.
I have been wondering about going with a agent ...but for now I think we will let God act as our agent until He lets us know otherwise.
My brother who lives in N.C is very excited about us moving into his area--I am too. ;)
He has started looking around for us.
Exciting!

I have never really had my OWN house.
When we got married we moved into Keith's families home and we lived there until we tore it down and moved into the camper and then here.
I look forward to making a place my own.
We will see where God takes us. But, I don't mind getting a fixer upper.
Nicki from Three Girly Girls got one and she and her husband did great things with it.
I look forward to seeing what type of creativity comes out of hiding in our new place.
Maybe if Nicki is close enough I'll bring her in to give me some ideas. ;)

Well, that is enough for now-time to get busy.
Looking for extra boxes....got any?

KEEP PRAYING....for my ability to work smart and for the sell of our two pieces of property.
Oh and Keith is having some problems with his back. He has never had any before and this is not a time to start seeing that we need to start moving things.
Oh, and he will be doing some more job hunting....so you can add that to your list.
THANK YOU!

Oh, Sharon that's great that you have some interest already in not one but both properties. I know that one has been a thorn for you guys with that well situation. I have wondered off and on today if you had been packing. When you told me the otherday that a lot of your things had been in storage since Katrina that just broke my heart. I can't wait until you have your own place that you can decorate how ever your little heart desires!! You deserve it after all the patience you had since tearing down your other house. Will continue to pray....
Love you big my Friend.
We are sooooo going to have to try a get together before you live this wonderful humid state!!!!

Oh my... I had no idea that the time was so close for you to move... Sounds like the Lord is going before you and I pray that He has the perfect buyer for that property..... He sees tomorrow and He is already there.... I will change the way I have been praying for you and your family.... I can pray specfic about a job and a home for you and your family....... I so pray that you find just the right little house that God has already anointed... and you can go in and decorate and make it your own........ I pray for the energy to get it all done and for the joy of the journey........

Love ya!!!!!

I'm sure the time is sad just as much as it is exciting. I am praying for you and Keith.

Sharon,

It is all going to fall into place. God is watching over you and your family and all will be well under His watchful eye.

I'm glad there is a potential buyer for your property. That will make things easier and if he lives next door he knows what the property is like.

WhooHoo! You are going on an adventure, my friend. I certainly will miss you while you are offline, but I know God has you in the palm of His hand.

Love and blessings,
Mary

Girl....if you move to this STATE I will totally be coming to see you!! Charlotte is pretty close to everything and my mom lives in Asheville, so we'll be going up that way too. But where are you thinking about?? And I think you should get a realtor. It makes things so much easier, and it's not like you are paying them, it's the seller. Praying for you!
