What Are We Doing?

That seems to be the question everyone has been asking us lately. Well, we started today moving all of our belongings to a storage building because Daniel has found it very difficult to get this house ready to sell while tripping over all the baby and kid gear we have for 3 small children in here! (He literally fell down the basement stairs one night because he tripped on some toys that were blocking the entrance). We made alot of progress today getting moved out and we are happy about that! We found a house in Bluefield, WV just across the state line that we really like. It is a gorgeous home built in 1921 with original woodwork and lots of room for a growing family with a great backyard. We put in a very low ball offer on it which was countered by an offer we could not afford so we are not sure what will happen there. We are going to talk to our mortgage broker tomorrow and find out if we can afford to up our offer a little and find out if we can even get this house without having the one we are living in sold. I am really hoping this house works out because if it does not we will be moving back to Christiansburg around the first of July. I love Christiansburg and would be happy to live there again but I know that Daniel is really wanting to build a house here in Bluefield as soon as we can and having to move and leave everyone behind after a few more years in Christiansburg would be very emotional for me. I am not sure I would even want to by that point because in the 3 years that we were there I got very attached. Please keep us in your prayers because I feel so tired of all the stress in our lives. I am tired of trying to live in a house that is undergoing a major remodel with 3 small children, I am tired of all the unknowns. I would be so thrilled to just settle down once and for all into a house that works for us and not move again for a LONG time. I will admit that we are not perfect and all of the stress lately has taken its toll on every aspect of our lives.
I know that God is in control and that all things work together for good for those who love Him.
I pray that He works all these things out soon!
