Because I have been asked I will try to include a link for a tour of our house.
Someday I'm sure that I will be glad to have this video but right now it feels so.......weird to have our house out there for all to visit and go through. :)
I wish I could greet you at the door and walk you through myself. Or better yet, sit down with you and have a cup of tea (or coffee) and chat. We have been blessed to see so many friends and family come through these doors.
We, of course, had to have it in the best of shape for the video but please know that it is our home. We have truly lived here. Toys have been strung out across the floors, dishes have been piled high after family meals, beds have been unmade, muddy tracks have been left on the laundry floors and there have been rings in the tub. :)
Laughter has echoed through it's walls, tears have been shed, praises have been sung and many, many prayers have been cried out here. We have danced (yes we have, but only behind closed doors!) and played games, had birthday parties and brought all of our new-born grandsons here.
We have fought and we have loved here.
It is our family home.
We recognize that it is an undeserved gift from God that we have been able to call this place home.
And we are grateful.
