Lately, I have been missing our Dear Old House...
the one we moved from last fall, the one we raised our daughters in, the one our grandchildren stayed in overnight in their room upstairs, and the one where they climbed the crabapple tree in the backyard.
I had a bit of a tearfest one evening, and the next morning, I was still feeling a little sad, when I was reminded that this new little cottage is God's plan for us. Somehow, in the course of the day, I hurt my back, and doing the day-to-day things I do became difficult, and the day after my tearfest, I was very thankful for this cottage where it only takes a few steps to go from room to room, the house that is easy to keep clean, and the home where our grandchildren still spend the night.
And God, in His wisdom, helped me to see that this little cottage He made possible for us to build, the one that holds the promise of more time with our daughters and their families, the one in a pleasant, new neighborhood just right for walks and exploring along the Yellowstone River, is just right for us.
This is the front porch of our new little cottage,
the place we now call home.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD,
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Then you will call on Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.
