The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Decisions, Decisions....

I am not good at making decisions.  Did I mention this before?

Anyway, here are the photos, I will let them speak for themselves. I feel like I'm on an episode of house hunters.... "Will she pick the fabulous hillside home with the view, but that is unfurnished.  Or will she pick the open breezy home that is out of her price range?"  :)

This is a view of the pool lounge area in the pricey house. 

One of the bedrooms

My favorite part of this house.  I don't know if you can see in the photo how both sides of the home are completely open. In this photo, I am standing by the pool looking through the house to the front courtyard.  Notice the exposed beam ceiling... ahhh!

Check out this view from the hillside house I looked at.

This is the living area... maybe a little fancy schmancy for a country girl, huh?  I doubt anyone in my bloodline ever lived on marble floors! :)

But doing dishes would certainly be alot more fun if you could look at this while doing it.  This is the kitchen counter view.

On my drive around to different houses yesterday, I passed several spots like this.  Wow!  I doubt I would ever get tired of seeing this on my daily route.

Or this either.... this was a small beach that was protected from the wind and crashing waves by the high rocks all around.  Don't know if you can tell how far down the beach descends, but look how tiny the people were.  

I have a light day today.  Only two houses to see and then, I think it's decision making time.  I have one to see in the morning, but that one is not furnished and I don't know if it will be in my price range once I get the furniture contract, so it looks like today is the day.  It's early yet! 

A quick request, if you wouldn't mind just saying a quick prayer for me, I feel alot of pressure about making the right decision here and I feel guilty about the prices too.  We could never afford these homes on our own and I just want to get something good for my kids but not gouge the company either.

Is is wrong for me to admit that I am soooo jealous?

Maybe today you will look at a house that will make your decision easy!

I agree with Barb...a bit of jealousy going on here as well.

I'd take either house. How is that for helping you make a decision! ha. I hope you are able to relax a little in paradise even though I know this is a stressful decision. Whatever you choose will be wonderful I am sure...and don't worry about the's a tax write-off. They will benefit from your living there otherwise you wouldn't be going. That's how it works ;).

Can't wait to hear which one you chose!
