Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Home sweet home

Yes, we will have a house... eventually.

This has been a whirlwind adventure, friends-- up and down, back and forth-- but I think we finally have a plan. After considering all the options, we have chosen to build a house. This is a new adventure for us; but given the needs we have for office space, and the location of the new development in town (within walking distance to both school and church! After years of long-distance driving, this sounds like heaven), this will be the best alternative. A nice little house, with a finished basement (at least, it will be finished when we are done with it).

The builder breaks ground and pours the footers this week, so it will not be quite finished when we need to move. However, our realtor happens to be building a rental house next door to the one that will be ours, which will be ready for occupancy the middle of June. Rather than renting it immediately, she has offered to let us stay in it for the two weeks or so that we will be out there before our house is ready. Hazel is a wonderful lady.

When I was in seminary, we gave out awards to the students who were the most "high church" in their piety and practice: those for whom incense is always in the air, sanctus bells are the sound of worship, and genuflecting is a reflex action. A rising Middler student could be awarded the Silver Spike, while an upcoming Senior might garner the Golden Spike.

With that in mind, my Seabury friends (who are well aware of just how high church I am not) will be interested to know that we will be living on Golden Spike Circle. Go figure.

That's not a lawn ornament, it's a monstrance.

Congratulations on the new-house-to-be!
