The second house was too big and way over our price range…but Marcia had an answer for that too, “this will be great for resale value.” Again, we weren’t interested.
After endless hours and five days later we happened across a home that “spoke” to me in a profound way. “Stop, is that for sale?” I pointed to that charming little white home sitting at the end of a long driveway.
“Oh, yes…but you wouldn’t want that—"
Both my husband and I asked, “Why not?”
“Well, for one thing it used to be a church.”
We looked at each other and in unison replied, “So?”
“Well, it wouldn’t be a good resale, and it has creaks and squeaks in the wood. And, you can still smell the candles and incense as you walk in.”
“Marcia, I want to see that house. Now, if possible.”
“Well, there is a lock box on it…I’ll take you in if you’d like…but—"
We insisted and Marcia finally pulled over.
I immediately got out of the car when it stopped and looked up and spoke in a soft whisper, “God if You want us here, please shower us with your blessings from above and we’ll know this is the house, even before we go inside…help us Father, Your will not ours. Just let us know that this house is a blessing from You…”
And, just as I finished my prayer, the rain came pouring down…but it was a “gentle rain” pure, warm and refreshingly fulfilling. I knew that this was the house for us and God's blessings upon us!
We moved in and have been happily there for the past 32 years. And, by the way…resale value has gone up considerably.
But, don’t even think about it…because it’s not for sale!
