Home Inspection

Today we had our home inspection on the house we would love to buy...some things the inspector told us we were not surprised by and other things well, we were a little surprised.  Now we are weighing out the options of what to do.  Since the home is bank owned, it's being sold "as is."  So no one is going to pay to fix everything, no one but us!  Eric has been calling around trying to get some estimates for the slope in the yard, and some electrical issues. 

It's tough because we truly love this house, and I honestly feel like it would help our ministry out so much in the hospitality area, and also just being able to meet with people more comfortably.  I never realized how many people didn't like going to apartments.  But if we fix everything we deplete our bank accounts.  Dave Ramsey would not be happy with us! 

Please pray for wisdom and discernment...we really need it. 

I wish I had some other exciting things to share with you all...but we are just plain old boring people!  Have  a great Monday!

Fixing does cost a lot so there's a lot to weigh here. I hope you guys can figure out what to do.

I will be praying for the Lord to clearly let you know what His will is for this house. I hope that whatever the decision, the Lord will give you peace about it. I guess if the door closes, then you will know that the Lord has something better planned :)

You're not plain or boring! I think this is exciting. I agree you need something bigger. You guys have such big hearts, you would use it as a blessing to others. I pray for God's wisdom and direction and favor in this situation!

What a tough decision! I hope that Lord will reveal his plan for your family on this matter. I know you can imagine yourselves doing much in that house, so I hope that it does work out in that benefit.

Praying now for the wisdom and for fixes that don't cost too much.

Tough decisions,, but comforting to know that the Lord has that perfect plan- perfect house all ready for you... and this may be it!
Hospitality is such a gift- when we built our home, we consecrated it to be used for the Lord and for serving others.. he held us to that...lol... and I am sure that you will love that part of serving even more with a new home!
Blessings-- one step at a time!
