Last week my husband and I submitted our second offer on the house I've mentioned, and we included a detailed letter explaining the reasons for our low offer, at our realtor's suggestion. My prayer as we signed the papers was that God would make it clear one way or another. It has been difficult waiting, as I continue imagining ourselves in that house, arranging furnishings and selecting paint possibilities.
The next morning we learned that another offer had been placed on "our" house the same night, and as the other bid was higher than ours, it was accepted. Later in the day, we decided to try again by countering with our maximum price as there was a contigency that allowed for other offers within 72 hours. We learned over supper that our third and final bid had once again been rejected. Tears of disappointment streamed down my face when I heard the news. It's hard to let go of this one, but I have to trust that God has something else in store for us.
