Ready for inspection

Today some finishing touches were done to my new home in readiness for Council inspection tomorrow (Tues). Hopefully, there will be no glitches and the inspector will issue a certificate saying the house is ready for occupancy. Ahhh... what a thought... "ready for occupancy".

I've been slowly moving boxes of stored stuff into the house, unpacking them, wondering why I have so much, wondering where to put everything, wondering and wondering some more. Each time I come down from Sydney (300kms) I come with a car stacked full of my accumulations of the last 2 1/2 years... and again wonder why I have so much stuff... sighhh... seems like it's hard to give or throw away anything... you never know I might need it one day!

One goal of this move is to get radical about passing on stuff I do not need. Otherwise there will be no room for me in the house!

I have some boxes for things to keep for the retreat cabins. These will get stored in the garage until such time the cabins are built.

The view out the front window is wonderful. Hills and cattle quietly grazing in the later afternoon sun. Very nice, and very peaceful. Feels good!

This all sound so exciting! Something that I have always dreamed of doing! I'm so proud of you for pressing through. God is such an encourager, isn't He? I can't wait for more updates on your new home and your retreat! I will be in prayer for this to come to completion soon. That God can begin the process of opening your place to those that He desires to bring His Peace and His healing. Oh this is such a cool thing! God bless you for such a desire. Maybe someday I may be allowed to visit!!

Carry on, my new friend in Christ!

Thank you, yet again. I hope you can come to visit one day. However, the retreat is located in the southern tablelands of NSW, Australia. Might be a bit far for you.
God is putting this together. You might find of interest my other blogs:
