Dear Diary,

Sunday was quite an adventure.  My new friend Mary Beth and I did some real cross country trekking in our search for The Scrap Inn.  We found some very interesting houses - one of which was almost eerie!  It was way back in the sticks - to the point we had to honk the horn to get the chickens out of the road (path).  In it's day, the house was probably quite the place to be - but time and lack of attention has caused it to be in very bad repair.  We definitely created a Memory by checking it out.  I will have to say - Mary Beth is a very brave lady. 

Another of the houses was very cute - very old - very run down - and not at all suitable for The Scrap Inn.  Although it has some real charm.

I did find a house that I think would work great for The Scrap Inn - unfortunately, it doesn't look like a possibility at this time.  It is one that I'm planing to keep an eye on though.  Things could change.

The others we looked at were either not big enough, or were in bad repair.  So, the search continues.  Although I'm thinking this area is a possibility.  It's NOT north!!!!!!!!!!!!!

These are the times that make me wonder if I miss-heard the "You can do this" and it makes me want to give up.   It seems so hopeless.  But, these are also the times that I am reminded that I serve a mighty God - and that He will provide the right house at the right time and that I need to have faith to believe that and trust totally in Him.

Dear Diary,

Turns out the house below is NOT The Scrap Inn.  The reason I asked for opinions as to whether it was the Scrap Inn - is because it just wasn't what The Scrap Inn looks like in my mind.  When this house looked like it might be The Scrap Inn - I needed confirmation that others could picture it as The Scrap Inn - I wasn't totally seeing it!

I got a lot of emails - saying it looked nice - and then had other questions like - was there a bedroom downstairs, was there ample parking, was it nice inside, was it south, etc.  But my favorite email was from a dear friend - who stated it looked like a very nice house - but not at all what she pictured as The Scrap Inn.  That was kind of the response I expected to hear the most.

So, not just because it doesn't have The Scrap Inn look - but for many other reasons - I decided to move on and keep looking.  So, the hunt continues.

I'm holding on to my belief that God has perfect timing - he's never early and he's never late!  So, I'll continue to look and count on his perfect timing.

Dear Diary,

Does this look like The Scrap Inn?

I really want to know what you think.

Dear Diary,

No, I haven't given up.  There just doesn't seem to be anything out there right now.  I am watching and praying and being patient!

Hopefully, there will be some news soon!
