Six weeks after putting our house on the market, we had an offer and just closed on Monday. This brings some mixed emotions - thrilled to have sold our house, but sad to no longer own our first home anymore. Does anyone else get attached to physical things like this? I thought it was kind of sad to sell Brandon's car too, but he didn't seem phased at all.
Also on my mind - I know that the spirit dwells in dedicated homes that are serving the Lord. But, can a part of that spirit be felt for the next owners? (I certainly felt a lack of spirit when we moved into this home). I have thought and prayed a lot about the people who would buy our house. I have a desire for them to love the home as we did and to feel the peace we felt there. I am sort of sad that we did all the closing through mail because I never got a chance to meet the new owners. Although, I know it is their first home, they have six small children between the two of them (I think there are plans to finish the basement) , and were so anxious and excited to move in. I heard that their was a lot of excitement and joy at the closing.
