"I am doing a new thing; now it spring forth, do you not perceive it?" Isaiah 43:19

Yesterday was filled with Lauren....and lots of smiles. She is such a happy baby! We stayed closer to the house today.

The bad news we got is our neighbors are adding a second story to their garage. Right now in our bedroom we have soaring ceiling with windows from the roof to the floor...literally. There are beautiful trees that fill out and lace over the window and when you look up you only see sky and leaves. IN TWO MONTHS...we will see only brick and windows looking into our bedroom. ANY IDEAS??? Please email me. I am way bummed.

I have to find a new way to deal with this as my healing home depends so much on the beauty of nature outside spilling through. I cannot allow myself to get stuck in a rut of "oh my gosh, it is going to be horrible". This is trite to the world, but upsetting to Terry and I and it is something we must depend on Him to show us how to cope with it and retain the privacy and dignity of our home. This second story will block all the morning sun from my sun room (aka the Garden Room) and my bedroom. We will stare out now at brick and windows staring back in at us. Please send ideas our way!

Be willing in your life to explore and find new ways to cope with things and make them opportunities and not negativity.


But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.” James 3:17-18

The only think I can think of is check with any home owners association that you might have to make sure they have approval. You might also see if they have variance approval - depending on high up they are building you usually can only be so high up in certain counties/townships. So check with the county to make sure they got approval, that they have pulled a permit (building permits are a pain and expensive) and it is illegal in Colorado to add on, finish a basement, build, etc. without one. The county should have public records and usually you can check without they neighbors finding out. Those are the only legal actions I can think of... You might invite them over for tea/coffee and tell them your concerns in a gentle, kind way? That's all I can think of - Jen
