I had an idea

OK, I have loads of ideas!!! Anyway, I had this idea yesterday. I had just dropped Sarah off at her Karate class and I met Elisabeth's mother. Elisabeth is this beautiful blond haired blue eyed girl. She could be in TV commercials because she is so cute!!! She rides the bus with Sarah to school. Her mom is from Russia (Siberia no less). Anyway, it was nice to meet Elisabeth's mom. I was on my way home and I thought again about all the doors God seems to be opening up to me here in the neighborhood. Doors to bless and care for people like Elisabeth's mom. I thought again about how confused I am about my house and my garden. My house is fine, I just want a bigger yard. I really don't like the idea of moving. So I get this idea. There is a large piece of land (an empty field) behind my house. Maybe I should start praying for 200-300m2 behind my house? Now you probably think I'm crazy. Why didn't I think of that before. But land is so expensive. And Why would the owner break that piece of land up? He could build an apartment building there. I don't think it could happen easily in a natural way . If it happens, it would be an amazing thing. I don't know what is right. I'm willing to move, but I'm willing to stay too. I just want a garden. Maybe the garden is just behind me...I just haven't asked for it? I love old houses with big gardens...but I love people too. God has been putting so many people in my path, and they live here.

Amy, Dad & I asked you about this possibility the first time we visited your current house. That was some 7 or 8 years ago. We even talked about the tall structure potentially serving as a guest house or tool shed. The land is approachable from a side street, not requiring you to haul in soil ammendments through your yard. This is not a new idea. It has been sitting in the recesses of your mind for a long time.
