Okay, if I wanted to rent my dream house, I'd rent this one. Only $850 per month, on a couple acres, and it has beach access to Lake Ontario. Can you imagine? (Click to enlarge any of these photos.)
But back to Reality Land..... Here, below, is the house Tom and I are currently considering, one which has an open house tomorrow, one not too far from the house, above... On 3+ acres with fruit trees, a barn and all for less than $90,000...
Just by seeing these photos, I love it already.... though pictures sometimes lie, or rather, don't tell the whole truth. heh.
Tom and I have said for nearly thirty years that we'd love to live in the country... that we'd love a barn, an orchard and some land. Of course, it's easy to speak such bold words... it's making me nervous to consider that we may just get what we have wished for--and perhaps find it not to our liking or more work than we'd enjoy... and that it was all a pipe dream rather than a God-inspired one.
Yet making bold moves usually feels that way and I realize that when God has a new project/ministry/plan in mind, He always makes it more than what we, ourselves, could handle on our own. Why? Because if we could do it all easily, then we'd be doing it all in our own strength (not His) and He would get none of the glory.
So I do know better than to look for something I-could-do-with-one-arm-tied-behind-my-back-no-problem. And gazing at this farmhouse I know it's more like a this-is-gonna-fail-big-time-if-God's-not-in-it project.
And in the photo of the side of the house, can't you just feel that country sunshine?
