House Update.... Moving?

Well, after my "stressed" blog a few weeks ago, I guess I should give a little update as far as what's happening now...  We signed a contract on "the house" that we were in love with LATE in the evening on April 16th.  After signing the contract we started getting VERY excited about the move!  We started pulling stuff out of the attic for a yard sale and tried to finish up the few items left to fix from the home inspection.  On Wednesday, April 18th, we got a call from our realtor saying that the couple buying the home of the lady buying our home lost their loan.  Everything fell through.  They had been pre-approved, but then it fell through in underwriting.  Thanks to the domino effect, everything just completely stopped.  The couple couldn't buy Karen Johnson's house, Karen Johnson couldn't buy our house, we couldn't buy "the house......"  So, now we wait - again.  I am completely at peace with it though. It took me a few days.  I was angry at first.  Why would God allow me to struggle so much with making a decision on which house to purchase knowing that it was all going to fall through in the end?  After a few days though, I was fine.  I know that God protected us from something.  Maybe from a bad decision, who knows?  However, at the moment, we are staying right where we are.  The lady with the contingency contract on our house extended the contract through August 15th, so we are still in limbo.  We still have a contingency contract on "the house" and we are just waiting for God to move us.  He may not, and that is fine.  We're just praying for God to guide us.  He's pretty good at that.
