15 months

It's official, our house in Fort Smith has been on the market for 15 LONG months.  

15 months ago everyone told me it would sell in a matter of days, 15 months ago we still lived in Fort Smith, 15 months ago the yard looked awesome, 15 months ago I was confident about this whole thing, 15 months ago we had a different Realtor, 15 months ago we had a contingent contract on a house in Jax, 15 months ago...

So here it is...

  • one owner 
  • 5 years old--like new!
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 1 small bonus room (office)
  • nice landscaping
  • wonderful neighborhood (just a small cul de sac)
  • one of the best school zones in Fort Smith
  • move-in ready
  • newly cleaned carpets
  • corner lot
  • priced right!!

*The house sits on a hill, but the garage is nice and flat.  The backyard is also flat*
 fenced backyard
 2-inch faux wood blinds throughout
 enormous master closet
 stainless steel appliances and double ovens
 nice master bath

We loved our time in Fort Smith and do not regret buying our first home.  It was a GREAT place to live.  Just down the road, I would take AG to see the cows, yet we were minutes from Wal-Mart.  The neighbors are top notch and we wouldn't trade the relationships we made with them for anything.  Unfortunately, the market is tough.  There are more than PLENTY of homes in our market (size, amenities, price) and buyers are getting to shop around AND give ridiculously LOW offers.

So, 15 months...

For 15 months God has proven that He is in control and I am not, for 15 months God has continuously provided through tight financial times, for 15 months God has answered my prayer to be home with my girls,  for 15 months God has grown me in so many unexplainable ways.

15 months.


  1. I love this post- we're right there with you guys. We are so thankful that God has (IS) providing. Our house in Lowell is rented out, but it's still like a weight around our necks. We're learning to just let it go- be thankful, pray continually and not worry. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. We will understand it in the sweet by and by. Praying, Praying Praying!

  3. remembering you guys daily and praying that God will answer, great post and pics of the house! Love gaga

For our joy and His glory,
