I am asking you to pray for comfort to a family of a little boy I took care of in the NICU. They are a precious family with two little boys that are mourning the death of their son this morning. This child went through so much during his time on earth, and I cannot imagine what his parents and brothers are going through. You can read his story at www.signalmtnboys.blogspot.com. Thank goodness God is a big God, and can handle me questioning Him from time to time, because I sure want to know why on this one.

Fast forward to yesterday, when Mrs. Realtor told us that Mr. Next-door-neighbor would not be able to buy the 8 acres, and Mr. Seller is going to list the land for Mr. Anyone in the world to buy. Oh, and did I mention that we are involuntarily "donating" a 30 foot easement through our land so that the back 8 aren't landlocked. Harumph.
So, the irrational person that I am wants to buy up that 8 acres before you can say "lotsa debt" three times fast. There is a possibility that we can afford it if Mr. Seller is feeling particularly generous, but these are not generous times apparently. These are fill up your milk cartons with water and stow canned goods in the basement times, which does not bode well for our situation.
So, my question for the day is, anybody want to be my neighbor? Or give us a couple thousand dollars to buy 8 acres? I'll even sing like Mr. Rogers... won't you be, please won't you be, oh won't you be my neighbor...
But don't bring creepy puppets along. But do change sweaters and shoes when you walk into your house.
Coming up next: special request post of renovation plans for 1994! Thanks to my one reader for the suggestion!
