New home soon(hopefully)

Ok, here is the deal on our housing situation. We are definitely not moving back to our old house. It is going to cost much more than what the house is worth to put things back how they were, plus do the additional things(filling in the basement and raising the house possibly 2-3 feet). We had found a house we really liked, but is sold before we could put an offer on it. We have now found another house and our offer will be forwarded tomorrow morning. We should know by Tues. whether they have accepted it. So, hopefully, we will be moved into a house by the middle of Sept. if everything works out. The best part of it all is that our mortgage will be under 3% interest rate! Kelley could tell you exactly, but for some reason I can't remember. We are trusting God that He will help us get the house He wants for us.

Things have been pretty busy at work and it will be nice to get away, even though still pretty busy, to the Assembly. We are planning on leaving Sunday morning after church. It will be great to see many of our friends, and to worship with all of them.

Continue to fight the good fight of faith.

Moving to a new house can be exciting. I'm praying everything works out for you. That interest rate is phenomenal! If you can set it up on a 15 year loan it would be a HUGE financial benefit down the road a little ways. 15 years got by pretty fast. Of course, I hope we're all in heaven by then!

It was great getting to see you and your precious family. How's the house search coming along?

It was good to see the you guys from "Ohio" as well. Glad that you guys were able to make it safely from WA and back. Hopefully, your luggage did a little better on the ride home than on the way to the GA.

That was too funny! I had forgotten about being from "Ohio. The look on your face was great!

Our luggage made it to Seattle at the same time we did. I'm glad...my brain was telling me that it was three hours later than what the clock was saying and we still had a two hour drive ahead of us and the thought of waiting around for our luggage...ugh! Thankfully that wasn't the case.
