The Great Remodeler strikes again! I loved the way this story kept me firmly planted with one foot in the awareness of an actual house with timbers and windows and bugs, while my other foot had me in a place of keen awareness of the spiritual implications of destroying the obstacles to light, shaking the foundations and showing us new possibilities. If you've ever been through a house remodelling project, you'll know that certain things we've accepted as unchangeable become very different things by the end.
Only the Architect knows how to create such a plan where walls are moved, windows moved and added, and many new outlets installed. I loved this story!

Wonderful descriptions -well done!
Poetry was dancing with your beautiful prose, Beth! The image of the renewed house into a home is such a familiar scene where I live. So many Victorian beauties are coming to life. The image is perfect, exactly what Christ does in our hearts!

Those old homes are so dark and dank, aren't they! Yet they can become a beautiful home with some work ... and you've brought this out beautifully - well done!
