After a wonderful weekend up at the farm and the lake place with Mamo and Papa, (pictures to follow as soon as I can get my camera to cooperate :) ), we drove home past a few houses that we were looking at purchasing.
Some were big with windows that arched up to let in light, some had front porches begging for chairs and flowers, and still others just didn’t seem to be what we were looking for.
The Lord has put us on a journey to find a house, and much like our adoption journey last year at this time, the pattern seems to be “Hurry up, and wait.” So while we wait for our house to sell so that we can move on to bigger things, we smile at our little cottage and pray for the future owners.
