As many of you know, our lease in this townhouse was only for six months. During our stay here, there have been two different Realtors trying to sell it. I never thought they would, as the price seems incredibly high to me. (Maybe I'm just cheap.)
We had started looking a little for a new place, but not really. We want to stay in this neighborhood. Our neighbors are great, the place is safe, quiet, and our girls have friends here now. We really didn't want to move.
So, last week my neighbor from across the road came over and told me the people next door to us were moving at the end of April. Perfect for us, I thought! Our lease is up May first. So I moseyed on over there that night with the Prince, just to confirm the info.
It is indeed true.
So we got the number of the owner and will call soon.
But it doesn't stop there. The next night, unannounced, this family knocks on our door and asks to look at the house. Mind you, we have been out all day long, have just finished supper, and I am in my jammies. So I threw on a jacket quick and said 'Sure! Come on in. Sorry about the mess, blah blah blah...'
They look around awhile, and then after they see the back yard the woman looks at me, and out of the blue says: "If I buy this house, would you stay an extra couple months? The other house isn't sold yet, and it would really help us out."
I thought it was really weird, but I said I thought we would be interested. (Just in case next door didn't work out and all.) So they left.
The next day the neighbor who is moving out tells me they have to extend their lease a few months because their house isn't finished being built.
Later that afternoon the other woman calls me to tell me they bought the house and if we're still interested in staying they will look at our lease and just go with a month to month contract. That way we're not locked in for six months or anything.
Now, how good is God?!? Not only did He (possibly) give us the house next door to move into, but He also is making it possible for us to stay here until the people next door are ready to move out!
Isn't that just like God?
Would you pray with us that this would be His will, and if not that He would show us before we agree to lease papers for the house next door, etc.?
It just seems unreal.
