So Matt and I put an offer down on a house the other day and within 24 hours someone else made an offer too. This caused our offer to be rejected. We found out today that it was because we asked for closing costs to be paid and the other people did not. The owners rejected our offer and countered the other offer. Well, we got a call tonight from our realtor saying that the counter offer had not been accepted yet and that we can still submit another offer. We are trying not to be excited but we are submitting another offer tonight and it sounds like ours will be the better offer. Today was a good day before this happened too. We went to church and then spent the day inside just resting. The ward that we are attending for now is a very welcoming place. I even bore my testimony which is not something that I do often at all. I am so thankful for the things that the Lord has blessed us with because of our obedience. We gave up so much to come here but we are gaining so much as well. We are becoming closer as a family and our faith is increasing by leaps and bounds. Even if we submit this second offer and it is not accepted, the Lord has given us hope and faith and above all comfort which is what I fasted for today. I have gained a huge testimony of the power of prayer and fasting. It seems as though everytime we have fasted for the last few months, we have had a miracle happen that same day. We should know by tomorrow at noon whether we have a house to move into by the end of the month. Now the trick is not to think about it.
