Just in case, I turned…and as drove up to the house for sale. I noticed several things about it. It had:
A large yard with mature trees
Access to a private beach
I stopped the van. I walked up to the house feeling a bit shaky. What a strange coincidence I thought. I asked the women who answered the door for a sheet of any sort. She invited me inside as she went to get one.
There I was, standing in a porch…just big enough for my porch furniture. She said follow me…and I stepped into a living room with all white walls and hardwood floors. She noted the new Anderson windows, as we passed into the dining room, also
with hardwood floors and white walls.
“Come into the kitchen,” she said.
As I stepped into the kitchen, I gasped. It was the largest eat in kitchen I had ever been in, in an old home-with hardwood floors. I could not speak as she handed me the sheet. I noticed the deck off the kitchen, and as she handed me the sheet, I could see this home was a lateral move-easily affordable to us. She then added, “Would you like to see our mud room?
Mud room? My spirit was still. As she opened the door to the two-car garage, my mind was racing. Would you like to see our family room in the basement? We just finished it.
I walked down the stairs into a basement with screens on the windows to let fresh air in, and door to walkout onto a patio…brightly lit…past an office and a ceramic tile laundry room.
Upstairs there were 3 bedrooms…and a surprise claw foot tub in the bathroom. (My favorite.) Needless to say…every item that I had given God was in this house, in this yard and in this neighborhood.
