I know I promised to show you the outside of our house weeks ago. I may be slow, but I am at least going to fulfill that promise. Our home is a Cape Cod house. The front porch is in desperate need of some love and rocking chairs. This isn't in the budget for this summer so camping chairs will have to do for now. We are still enjoying the space and the evening and morning breeze that whispers in our ears. We are also enjoying the neighbor's dog, cows, and horses. This may become our new idea of farming. We are also taking some time to think about landscaping. What do we do with this area in front of the house? Time will tell, but we are open for suggestions and ideas.
This is our side yard view. See the neighbor's cows? We feed them left over scraps. They are realizing that this fence line is the place to be. There have been many corn husks and watermelon rinds thrown over there recently.
This is the view from our front porch. See the mountains in the background? They aren't quite as beautiful as the mountains in Greeneville, but they are still mountains none the less. The Lord knew my heart. The mountains have been something I have enjoyed greatly every since we moved to Tennessee from Florida. I was so afraid that we wouldn't get to enjoy the views in our new home, but God had a different plan. I am pleased. We finally closed on our home last week. We had a few minor glitches here and there, but in the end we signed the papers. This is another miracle in our life. (I don't use that word lightly). If you had asked me 3 months ago if we could really buy a house, I would have had to say "No". It didn't look like it from all of the indications. We had decided to rent, but that didn't work out either. To make a long story short, the Lord opened the doors and brought us exactly to the place we needed to be. I am more than thankful...my heart is overjoyed with thanksgiving!
