As I said in my previous post, GOD'S timing is perfect and we need to have the faith to trust HIM completely. When the prospective buyer of our home said they wanted to close on 5 May, a mere two weeks from the contract being offered, everyone shook their heads in disbelief. Today, at 2PM, we signed the legal documents closing the sale of our home. Done, Complete! This is a huge stress removed from our minds. We have been worried, without cause, over this sale. Remember, we moved to our retirement apartment in early March. When we signed the lease for our apartment in February, the house was not even on the market. Not to mention the terrible housing market issues. But, GOD brought us a wonderful realtor who worked endlessly to sell our home. She even planted azaleas and flowers, HERSELF, to enhance our homes curb appeal. Now that's a dedicated professional!
So, as of today, we are debt free, living in a perfect community, without stress, having a great time, and ready to enjoy the rest of the good time that GOD gives us. Yes, I still have mental and physical issues that are annoying. Yes, they are progressively getting worse. But, I am having the time of my life. Linda and I really enjoy being retired. The freedom to do what we want, when we want. We have a trip to Iowa planned for this summer top meet some relatives that we did not even know existed. We even plan on going to the Barrett-Jackson Car auction in Scottsdale, Arizona next January. If you are a car "Nut", you will know what I am talking about. Do I have issues, yes. Are we going to let my physical and mental issues dictate what we do or how we feel. No! We plan on letting GOD show us the way.
By the way, if you live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, and need a realtor, Ms Faye Ninos of Wainwright Realty is the best!!
