It appraised !!!!

That's right. Our house appraised for the agreed amount. Woo Hoo !!! Today there were lots of inspectors here crawling around and checking out what a solidly built house this is =). We are planning on and moving ahead with our plans to pack up and be out of here. We are continuing to put our faith in God as we pack in faith that all the details will be buttoned up with out any hitches.

We have seen how there is opposition from the enemy to try and discourage us as we celebrate this victory. But we are blessed by how God has fought the fight for us and we are clinging to the TRUTH. We have been given many opportunities to continue to glorify God in all of our actions and at times it hasn't been the easiest. I will take these opportunities to be refined even more and praise God for what He is bringing us through.

I am grateful for Grammy and my little helpers as we scrounge around in dumpsters looking for boxes. Trying hard to go green and reuse all that we can without buying new boxes. It will be a busy few weeks as we press on and follow the path where God has led us.

I can't sign in as Science Geek for some reason, but I couldn't wait another second to tell you CONGRATULATIONS!!! I knew it was going to appraise! I'm so excited for you, but sad to think that there's no longer any chance that I might run into you in my local travels! I'm happy you have your Mom with you as you pack. I bet you can't contain your excitement! Do you already have a place lined up in your new locale?

I love the "dumpster diving" I would do the same...retailers always have a lot of boxes.. you may want to call some stores and ask when they have trucks coming.

Happy Packing!
