Stress, integrity, forgiveness and stuff............

Wow do I feel numb. This has been a very stressful week to say the least. We closed on our house last Friday and they gave us a check. My bank said they would have to hold the check for 3 days yet I was suppose to close on our home in Charlotte today. Well, Cassandra and I had to go to the bank our check was drawn on and get out cash, $$$$, greenbacks, mulah, yes the Benjamins! I felt like a bank robber walking out of the bank with all of that cash. Then I was worried about being robbed before I got the $$ in our bank. Our mortgage people tried to pull a bait and switch on us. We agreed on the interest rate and the amount of $$ I would need for closing today. We were going to close via mail. However, when I received my packet via FedEx today, they had two different amounts that we were to wire to Charotte! One was the one we agreed upon and the other was $3K higher. I called them on their tactics and they agreed to the original amount! Praise God! So tomorrow we will close on our house in Charlotte. The movers come tomorrow thru Thursday. I have learned valuable lessons about honesty and integrity over the last few years. If you don't have integrity you don't have much at all. I would rather be broke and be able to sleep at night than dishonest and tossing and turning. Being honest and a person of integrity may not seem to pay off now, but one day it will. Look at Joseph in the OT. He went thru lies and deceit yet he maintained his honesty and integrity. I just pray I can be that kind of man -- One who forgives and keeps his word. One who can look everyone in the eye and know that I have done nothing to harm them or their reputation. I feel I have accomplished that in Mobile. Last night I heard so many apologies. I have moved on. I forgive. I want others to move on. I hold no bitterness. What others meant for evil, God meant for good. I am moving on now. It is a place that God wants us to be at. I am excited about the future. I'm excited to be where being me is accepted. I'm excited to be where my family will be loved and accepted for who they are. I will have fond memories of our youth, youth workers and our true friends who showed their love for us yesterday afternoon. You will be missed! Thanks for your love and support!

I am sooo glad you were able to get them to hold up their end of the deal. I am sure you had a sick feeling when you first opened that information! Praise the Lord, and you know, you quoted SC2, "Bring It On", Declaration

"‘Cause I know I’ve got an enemy waiting
Who wants to bring me pain
But what he never seems to remember
What he means for evil God works for good
So I will not retreat or surrender"

But I am sure you already knew that! LOL

I closed on my first home purchase ever back in June. I thought I was going to lose my everloving mind.

It was by far the most stressful thing I've ever done.

Blessings as you move to Charlotte.
