House Shopping

For the past year, my husband has been dragging me along to look at houses with a few acres. He is a very high energy person and now that he is semi-retired, he doesn't have enough to do. We built the house where we've lived for seven years because it has no yard, except a bit in front and that's all he could keep up with while he was working full time. I love this house because it has a loft where I can paint.
When we first started looking, we tried to buy 4 acres, close to our son, where we could build. But that didn't work out. I've been going along, silently hoping we couldn't find anything and I wouldn't have to move. A month ago, we found a beautiful house that I fell in love with. That didn't work out either and I was ready to wash my hands of the whole process.
God is sooooo Good! God constantly amazes me with how perfectly He works things out! This week, the 4 acres we originally tried to buy, close to our son, along with a lovely old farm house came on the market. It has everything and more that my husband and I wanted.
"Now all glory to God, who is able through His Mighty Power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to Him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen", Ephesians 3:20.
