The alarm went off at the usual time but today would be anything but usual. I woke up slowly and managed to get out of bed and dressed in time to eat breakfast and hit the road. We had a long drive ahead of us but we hoped the results would be good. Following directions given to us by the realtor we found the first property. It was mostly open but had a small wooded area and stocked pond. The price was ok but there was large power line running over the pond and across the property. It was just too open for what we wanted so we left for the next property.
We had seen this next property once before on our own. As we got closer I recognized the area and knew that the curve where the driveway is located was coming soon. Cautious excitement filled my mind and heart. We pulled into the driveway up to the entry gate. Exiting the car, we opened the gate and walked back the long driveway. As I looked at the trees I felt a peace come over me and felt like I was home. I remembered the time I had this feeling before. We were at an estate sale and I walked into the house just like I owned it. I knew it was mine. Shortly after that we bought that home.
As we stood in the yard and discussed details with the realtor the wind began to quietly sing through the trees. It was an amazing sound. It was unlike anything we had ever heard. The realtor left us there and we walked around discussing the possible purchase of the property. We prayed for direction and to make the right decision. I cried thinking that we might have found what we desired. We left energized and thinking about all the possibilities and understanding all the cleanup that would be needed to bring this property up to the standard we desire.
I believe that God will give us the desires of our heart, because he puts the desires in there and makes a way for them to come true.
Enjoy your week and I will be back next week with more.
