February 28. The Lord gave us a lovely day today, but we didn’t get to go out much. Neither Daddy nor I went out to church today because of our colds (or flu, or whatever it is).
We listened to an Independence Day message online from last year from Central Baptist Church in Ocala, FL. There were some wonderful quotes from the early days of our country that we would love to get and share.
Later in the morning, I took a nap. We did go out for a short time this afternoon, as we had already made an appointment to look at a house in Shelby. Right after Christy and Connie got back from church, we headed over there. Met the owners who had bought and renovated an old house built in 1925. It is a three-bedroom two-bathroom house, and the bedrooms are fairly good size. It [originally] was a duplex, with the one side having been added on around 1980. The floors in that side go downhill a bit. We actually spent quite a while there talking with the owners; and before leaving, we filled out an application. It wasn’t long after we left that they called Daddy and asked him to come over with a proof of income. They have decided to give us first choice to rent. They will bring a lease tomorrow for us to sign, and then we can start moving in.
We are excited about the possibilities of ministry in the neighborhood!
