Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

The Beginning of a Big Hole

We thought maybe the digging for Oak Haven would start yesterday, so we went out to check in the late afternoon. There was no work going on that we could identify as being for our basement. It was still fun to check out the lot, though. We are easily entertained.

This is a picture of our cul-de-sac. The house on the right is occupied. The house in the middle of the picture is under construction. We have never seen our future neighbors visiting their new condo and don't know who they are. Maybe they're not as easily entertained as we are.

The pile of dirt on the left side of the picture is where our condo is going to be.


Today things were much more exciting. There is the beginning of a big hole in the ground and dirt is being moved.

It's gradually sinking in that we are building a beautiful new home for our new life together.

So exciting! A new home for your new life. And you get to build both from the ground up. I cannot believe how green the grass is on the occupied house...it's going to be a lovely neighborhood.

Oh my goodness, I can really identify with your "amusement" and excitement! I'm so happy you are sharing all this with us.
