Just to be sure we went on to the next house. The land was nice, but the house was NOT for us and much farther out than we wanted to live. The next day we had plans to look at 1 more house. Most of the kids opted to stay home, they knew it wasn't ours. ;) We were just going to make sure there were no "what ifs" in the back of our minds.
Those questions I had about WHO would build a house like this? Yea, a family that adopted 11 children builds a house like this! They lived here 20 years. Those 2 littles still in the home? The grandchildren. :) This house was built for us long before we knew to start praying for it. God is good! There are so many big and small prayers that were answered through this house. Prayers that were spoken and shared, silent prayers and even those that were just hidden away in my heart. Some answered in the loud "THIS IS YOUR HOUSE" way, and others in the whispered "I care about even this" sort of way.
For those that are wondering... We can't know what God has planned in the future, but unless He says otherwise we do intend to settle here.
