Goodbye, big house

Closing is set, and sooner than expected, on my former house. I’m still trying to figure out what to sell, what to give away, and what to store of the stuff from that house, but in less than two weeks the house itself will be gone. I’ll miss being a landowner. I’ll miss the woods behind the house. But the house I won’t miss.

I’m looking forward to my little cabin! There are several pieces of land I want to look at. One thing I’ve become more aware of… it costs money to have a good foundation. Lots of money. But I’m looking forward to finding that piece of land and getting the foundation laid. And part of me doesn’t want to mar the land with a new foundation. I’d like things to be just like they’ve been, but with my house on a corner, hidden in the trees. Maybe I’ll buy. Maybe I’ll build. I’m looking forward to the next step of my life, knowing that the big house will no longer be in the way of the little house to come!

About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? http://wp.me/p1CY5z-1R Baptism! http://wp.me/s1CY5z-baptism
