This is the time of year we are more mindful of giving thanks and I am no exception. We didn't do a traditional Thanksgiving dinner this year, as our house was on the market and I didn't want an unnecessary mess to clean up in a rush. To Medieval Times we went! The kiddos had a blast and I didn't have a mess.
That turned out to be an amazing decision, as we had showings every day that week, with two on Wednesday. Wednesday night, we heard an offer was imminent. Friday it came and Saturday we were under contract! I am acting surprised, but I shouldn't be. My husband and I asked God to sell it for us. I have a job offer, but I couldn't accept and move without selling the house. We decided to pray it in. We asked God to have the house under contract by the end of the month. We asked for a specific dollar amount. We thanked God for answering us. He is good. The house sold in 10 days and the buyers want to close on the 29th of December, so we have lots of work to do!
So tomorrow, I discuss with my future employer the timeline of my start date. It might be tricky with the holidays coming up. I'll have to consider school letting out, giving my current job notice, moving four hours away, setting up a new apartment, oh and Christmas!
Next on my prayer list: job negotiations, new living arrangements, finances to fall in order, firm closing date without hiccups. And of course, giving thanks for the goodness of God!
