Under Contract?

Well, we may have some REALLY good news. We had a very good offer on our house today which we accepted contingent on a pre-approval letter. As long as our realtor gets that tomorrow, our house will be under contract! We won't be closing until September 29th--which is good because it will give us more time to work on our new house without the pressure of having to have our house in show-ready condition at all times. This is such an answer to prayer. It's really been a test for me to completely trust God on this. I've really been praying that God will help me to relax and put it in His hands.

On a side note, the new house is slowly coming along. While the painting party didn't actually happen this weekend, we did have our friend Anna over yesterday for a few hours to help (and you know Anna can make any situation a party!) We got quite a bit done and it's amazing what a little paint will do. These pictures were stolen off of Anna's blog:

I will close this post with a verse out of the book of Zephaniah. We have been going through the minor prophets at church and today we learned about Zephaniah. This was such a beautiful verse and picture of our Father:

"The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save. He will take delight in you. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with singing." Zephaniah 3:17
