I have struggled all day with what to write for this post. It's not one I wanted or ever thought I would make.
We got the call this morning that they are closing on the property tomorrow - with another buyer. Apparently, the fact that we have been unable to contact anyone in the listing agent's office for a week was due to the fact that they were negotiating with someone else. Everyone on our end of the deal is either upset or furious at the way this was handled. I don't believe anything done was illegal, but it does seem to qualify as unethical in just about everyone's book.
We are sad. We are OK, but we are sad. I was so sure that this was the place for us. Every time we went out there I felt more at home there, more comfortable. It just seemed so right.
Which brings me to another concern. I have always relied very much on my sense of how things are supposed to be. I have often gone against that sense, but I have had it just the same. I mentioned previously that I hadn't packed yet because it didn't seem like time yet, but I never doubted that I would pack. I had no reservations that this was the property that God had chosen for us. I am now questioning my ability to sense the Spirit's moving. That troubles me.
I know that if this wasn't the right place, God has something else in mind that is even better. Right now that is really hard to imagine, but it is what I am holding on to.
I would appreciate any words of wisdom that anyone has for us right now. And if you know of any place for sale that we might be interested in, please let us know.
