Last month our realtor took us to a house that we liked a lot. It needs a bunch of work, but everything else about it seemed good. It was the one place dh and I actually agreed on how to use the spaces. It got pulled from the MLS listings within days of our visit. I was disappointed, but I also know that sometimes, it might not work. I was out tonight, taking some things to a couple friends. On the way home, I had a sudden urge to go check on the house to see if it was still or back on the market. Lo and behold there's a for sale sign in the yard and this time I wrote down the 1-800 number and called. It's available, it's a short sale and the bank is willing to take an offer we can afford. (Meaning, we can afford to pay the mortgage on dh's current income, and not have to factor mine since I won't be able to work for a few months.) Since we're going to be out that way looking at a couple houses already in the morning, I plan on calling the realtor handling the listing and tell them I'm interested in putting in an offer and want to make a 2nd visit to the house. Hopefully while we're already out in the area with our realtor we can check that house again. Even more hopefully, we can get the right mortgage for our family. We had a preapproval, but it is now expired and we have to start over again.We're looking into a different lender than before as well. So once again, I'm praying that Divine Guidance puts us where God wants us to be, wisdom and discernment to recognize the works He uses to direct us.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Frankly,I'll take a house that needs some touch up work over a house that's "move in" ready.
