going once, going twice, SOLD!

Amidst all my pregnancy woes, a fire, and the stress of everyday life, we have MUCH to be thankful for!
Today we sold our house!!!

I thought I'd take a minute to update those of you who don't know what the deal is with our housing situation. This evening we sold our house at Public Auction. The auction could not have gone better! We actually got more for it than we had hoped (a total answer to prayers). Another huge thing is the guy who bought it is a young amish man with no wife or family, so he is in no rush to move in..which means we can live here until our new house is built!!
(another answer to prayer)

We will be building our new home just down the road from where we are now. After we square things away at the bank, and get those permits we will break ground!
Oh man, I cannot believe I'm writing all this!! I never thought I'd see this day:)

So the plan..
Have a baby mid March
Move into our new home mid March

I think March might be a tad crazy for us but a
GOOD crazy!

We are more than blessed.
We are so thankful to our Father for his favor and provision.
We are thankful to all our friends and family who have been covering us in prayer.
And we look forward to enjoying this season of blessings.


  1. I will pray for a calm winter. That way the house will be done in time for Baby Byler and family! :-)

  2. Okay, that answers my question on FB! Congrats to you guys! Hope things go well with building and packing and moving and all... but what about a fire?

  3. Yeah for you! It will be crazy, but since you are crazy it will all balance out. So happy for you guys (and yes, a bit jealous...our house is still for sale!).

  4. What a wonderful provision....and God's timing is ALWAYS right! Isn't that amazing that you can stay in your home until you need to move out. That's a real blessing.
    I'm gonna follow you I'll be able to see how the next few months go!
    I've answered your question over on my own blog...
    Love, Anne x
