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.
