We went yesterday and looked at some land we might buy that’s a couple of miles from our current home.
We took the whole family this time…our daughter, home from college…our two boys and the new baby, Sparrow.
It was raining some…and may not have been the best day to walk around 7 acres.
It’s a big project to buy a piece of property and remodel an old farmhouse.
I don’t know if we’re really willing to take on another project like that.
Thinking about any changes in our lives takes up a lot of our energy and attention. When you’re not used to borrowing money, it’s stressful to think about taking on a big loan.
I guess that we’re on a roll, though…new baby and all. Why not really shake it up and buy a big chunk of land with a couple of derelict buildings needing refurbishment? That would help maintain the momentum we seem to be working up….
But today it’s Easter…and all of the small concerns should feel even smaller in the perspective of this miracle and gift.
Thinking about resurrection should be a little more captivating than wondering why the furnace was up in the attic in this old house we looked at.
A miracle is more thought provoking than holes in the roof.
We are distractible. There are things that draw our attention…that hold our attention..that might not be worthy of a second thought.
That’s something worth concentrating on…for a while, at least.
