Well, I now have a state identification card and a driver’s license. I have a new appreciation for what Sarah must have felt like everytime Abraham said, “Start packing, Honey… God’s moving us again.” And, I have a yearning in my soul to own this 1960s era two story house with white siding, a narrow columned front porch, a two car garage and a very long driveway. The three bedrooms and 1.5 baths are merely a bonus.
We drove buy it today. It is on a little street in Haltom City where the sweet little house with the dangling porch light sits cozily tucked into a bend in the road. I can see us hosting family gatherings for years to come. It needs remodeling which is part of the appeal for me – the bonus part seems to be that the company that is selling it will do the remodelling. I’m okay with that. And, by the price in the brochure all of this can be ours for perhaps a little more or less than $100,000. So… What’s a girl to do but ask for your prayers and God’s favor in the process. I would even be willing to earn a little sweat equity.
The Lord provides, always. He showed me this little house for a reason – I just hope it is because we’re supposed to be there. Just hoping and praying and believing for the change.
