A poetic list


Our old friend realtor, the one who helped us find this acreage almost 7 years ago, has contacted us recently saying acreages such as ours are in demand. He knows we have talked off and on about selling this property and living in town. With the kids rapidly leaving home I will soon be left with three and in another year just two girls at home, and the benefits of living close to everything--church, park, store, etc--are obvious.

Not to Numbers Six and Seven. They presented me with a list the other day, a long list, a long and poetic list. Some of the items on the list were predictable. Some were breathtakingly poetic.

This morning as I said the Rosary, God sent me another of his gorgeous dawn postcards. May God help us in making a decision that is a happy one for the future of our family life.

Oh Ana! Their list is so beautiful and heart felt! So stirred by God in their hearts. I can see why this is an incredibly difficult decision to make. I'll pray as you discern.

We will pray for you as you make this decision!! It's a TOUGH one! Is there a property in town that has sunset views and enough land for a huge garden? It's nice to be in the driver's seat....you don't have to move unless you find something that is a perfect fit for you!!
