Decision made...

Mark and I stayed up late talking things over.  Before going to sleep I got on my knees and thanked the Lord for the awesome blessing of having two beautiful houses to choose from.  This morning we got an email from our landlord that helped us make a final decision.  Before I go on, I would like to explain.  When I first came home from our house hunting trip to Denver I was in tears.  The Lord has soothed my broken heart in the comfortable surrounding of the Little Blue Cottage allowing me to prepare myself to relocate.  Since seeing the vintage house on the hill, I have of course thought of how I would arrange the house, etc.  As I thought about the house I kept having a desire to have wood flooring in the dining area, a more modern bathroom and a laundry room that was not in the basement.  With the modern house I can have those desires met.  So we have decided to take the modern house.  Here are a few pictures below; two were taken in spring or summer and the last picture is the view from the back deck in winter.

So glad to hear the LORD lead you to a decision easily. It is a lovely home...and I can see you enclosed in those redwoods in the privacy of that deck contemplating the beauty of the LORD. I have always prefered 'new' homes...it's nice to have everything working. I know you will love the woodflooring and Big bathtub(called a garden tub, so I've been told. I have one and it is dreamy).

I have always loved that rose with snow on it...glad you put it back up.

I just re-read the details of each home and your choice sounds perfect. To have the M.bedroom on the main floor will be nice and the boys upstairs with their own rooms and baths. I think you will all like that! The wood flooring, deck outside the kitchen and big fireplace sound perfect. I look forward to going on this journey with you. YOu will be blessed, I just know it!
