When we first built our house, our friends joked and said things like, “Why do you need a four-bedroom house, when it’s just the two of you and a cat?” We would respond with something such as, “We like lots of room,” or “We have a lot of furniture.”
We didn’t know it then, but we would eventually fill those extra three bedrooms. I like to think it was God’s hand working behind the scenes, making us build the house we needed for the adoption of our three beautiful girls, also His doing.
The first bedroom was emptied when youngest daughter moved in with her fiancé, now her husband. But today, oldest daughter moved into her apartment (along with her cat). Things will be a little quieter around here tonight, now that there’s another empty bedroom.Published in
