Piano for Sale

Well folks.... I am going to sell my baby grand piano. I have prayed long and hard about it. I love my piano. My great aunt, Toss, who was very dear to me, bought it for me. I love to play it. I love to open it and hear the pure sound.

But reality has won out over sentiment. First, with three growing boys we really don't need such a large piece of furniture in our living room. I am hoping to sell this piano and buy a console piano so I can continue to play and teach piano lessons, but without taking up half of our living room. And second, we could really use the money for some minor home improvements. We need some trees removed as they are dead or dying and one is leaning over our house. Our deck is in bad shape. And we would like to try to get sod in our backyard so there is actually grass for the boys to play on. All these things are important and they cost money. So, I am sacrificing for the good of my family. When I first considered selling the piano, I had a hard time. But now, God has given me a peace about it and I know it is the right thing to do.

So...... if you live in the area and want a great piano or you know some one who does, check out our ad on craigslist by clicking here. We have listed it for about $600 less than it appraised for, so it really is a good deal!

This ministered to my heart today Carrie. May the Lord bless your efforts.

She looks well to the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and bless her; Her husband also, and he praises her, saying: "Many daughters have done nobly, But you excel them all." Proverbs 31:27-29

If I had the money to buy it, I would in a heartbeat, but I do not make that much. I, too, am in love with playing the piano and I miss having the luxury of doing so.

However, I hope you are able to sell your piano to a good home and to someone who will treat it just as you have with just as much love. ♥

On another note, nice blog. Was brought here from your lovely email about our store [Publix #670]. ☺
