so be it
Monday after Mass, I was chatting with a friend, and she told me that she and her husband had taken a ride to another parish on Sunday and then stopped to see a piece of property on the way (above). As she described it, it sounded interesting to me. She said that they would never afford it. However, there is a transaction in the works that may possibly make it feasible for dear hubby and I. I found it on the internet, looked it up,. mentioned it dear hubby. He liked the sound of it, and mentioned it to his real estate guy. Friday evening, DH and one child and I rode out to see it. We really liked what we saw. Saturday morning, our real estate guy met us, we looked around, and signed an offer that afternoon.
We are excited about the potential, but trust that God will put us where we are supposed to be. If it works out, it works out. If not. So be it. Almost all traces of previous habitation had been removed, but as we looked around, I ran across this in one of the buildings:
It's St. Joseph. Not sure exactly why he is there. I didn't realize until today that St. Joseph's feast day was Saturday. Perhaps I should ask St. Joseph's intercession?
St. Joseph, pray for us!
