Back from the GA and house hunting

Well, we made it back from the Assembly. It was great to be there and worship with and see all of our friends. We really enjoyed the services. The Spirit was there in great measure. I did get a little tired of the stairs to the balcony, but I guess that is what you get when you have a little girl who doesn't do well sitting in service for a week straight. I went back and watch/listened to part of the service I had to preach in. Man, I have too much of a southern twang while I was preaching. I have a bad habit of picking up speech habits of the locals after I have been in area for a day or two. Also, apparently, I have a tendency to preach with more of a southern twang when in front of a crowd. I have no idea where I picked that up. Anyway, enough about me. There was a lot of good preaching. Some of which I am going to have to go back and watch since I spent a lot of time out of the auditorium whenever Anna couldn't handle sitting still any longer.

Our house hunt is continuing. We put an offer on a house before we left for TN. We found out while we were down at the GA that someone else offered cash for the house and the bank took that deal. That is 5 houses that we have looked at, 4 that we definitely wanted, that have sold. The real estate market definitely is not slow around here, at least in the price range we are looking. We have an offer on a house right now that we are waiting to hear back from. The first offer wasn't accepted so the person made a counter offer that was only $400 less than the asking price. There is no way that we are going to pay that, so we made another counter up $1,000 from our original. We will see how things go. We are hoping and praying to get things settled soon.

Strive for the prize
