I don't even know what to type here.

We got bad news today.

The bank denied our buyer's offer on the house. If you remember, we were going the short sale route and asking the bank to accept an offer below the amount of our loan, hoping that the value loss of our home and our incredible hardship history would be enough for them to forgive our debt. Well the amount we were asking them to accept is actually $20,000 too low. Our buyers are walking away and now our realtor is trying to find investors who might be interested in buying a rental property.

It makes decorating the tree with ornaments like these, a little less enjoyable.

I wish I had words of wisdom or a way to help, but I am lacking in both. Please know as I read this post I wept with you. It also made me think about this scripture passage during the battle with Amalek in Exodus 17

"Moses’ hands, however, grew tired; so they took a rock and put it under him and he sat on it. Meanwhile Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other, so that his hands remained steady until sunset."

I might not have a "rock" for you to sit on and I may not be physically present for you during this "battle" in your life, but I hope that you feel supported, loved, and encouraged as we all pray for you.

Much love to you all.....
