Could our house actually be sold????

As you already know, we are in an economic downtime. When it comes to housing, the market is for the buyer. So when we put our house on the market, we knew that it could take some time. We also knew it could be still ours when we plan to leave this summer. What would we do? Cross that bridge when we got to it. As we prepared to leave for Minnesota/Wisconsin, I worked hard to get the house ready. Andy and our friend Abi helped. The boys, not so much. But I felt that getting it ready for showings while we were out of it for 2 weeks would be very wise. Just the thought of not having to get it ready each time someone wanted to see it...very appealing. But would anybody want to see it? I am still in MN. The house has been on the market two weeks. We have had three showings. Not bad. But here is the really good part. One of those who came to look at the house has given us an offer. Can this really be true? Looks like there will be a family enjoying our house when we leave this summer to move into our new one. God is so good. We certainly don't deserve it. Thank you for your prayers. As far as support, it continues to grow. We are at 40%.
