We are praying that "Big Daddy" gets a job

Last week I got a call saying that we were going to have someone look at the house on Saturday. As soon as I got this information, I just had such a peace about this showing for some reason. With Chuck gone it was up to me to get the place "show ready" for Saturday morning. I mowed the yard and cleaned the house and we were ready to run our weekly errands and be out of the way so this family could see the place. For some reason, I asked if our realtor could come and be here for the showing (something I never have asked before).

Later I heard that this family really likes the place. They were here for 2 hours and had all their questions answered (good thing our realtor was here). I was also able to get the scoop from her about the showing. Here are the details and how we are praying. The guys name is Big Daddy (yep, that is what he goes by) and she is Sandy. He is up for a contracting job (from Anheiser Busch I think) in the next town over and if he gets the job he said he would put an offer on the house. So, needless to say, we are praying everyday that Big Daddy gets this job. To be totally honest, I have such a peace about this one. I am trusting that this is our buyer. And if not, than I am trusting that God has something better in store for us. It is so neat to see how God is working and all that we are learning through all of this.

So, join us as we pray for Big Daddy and Sandy. Wouldn't that be awesome if God worked through Anheier Bush and Big Daddy? What a great story to tell. =)

I thought you had gone off the deep end and started calling CP "Big Daddy" when I first read the title (smiles). You know you're in the south when people go by Big Daddy to strangers. I'm joining you in prayer that he gets his job and you will all be on your way to being together again soon.

Do I HAVE to pray that he'll get the job? It will mean you have to move! I know...you really want to live with your husband again, LOL, but we will miss you teribly!

We have a contract on Aunt Ruth's house after a very long wait. I have thought all along that both houses would sell within a few days of each other! Praying for Big Daddy.

See you very soon. 5 days!

Praying that Big Daddy gets an offer & then makes you an offer. The Lord's peace about this surely is a sign. Hang in there...I have a feeling your entire family will be reunited soon.
