"Lead me in our truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long." Psalm 25:5

Painting: Yes, this is one from 2005. I was into studying values.

The Thought: I promise this is not from 2005.

Last night I had my first 'Peeping Toms'. Yes, you read correctly. I have mentioned our neighbors building a second story and two of the windows have a wonderful view STRAIGHT into our bedroom. I was assured that none of the kids would be in this area and not to worry. Well, there we were and there they were... staring in straight at us. This window they are seeing us through is a second story window in our home (Our bedroom has very high ceilings and our window is a lower window about 4 ft wide and 7 ft tall and above that a window about 4 ft wide and maybe 4 ft tall. Pictures below.) Three weeks ago this window viewed the sky with stars and trees at night. Now we view high walls, windows, peeping eyes and no sky. Sort of caught me off guard. Our choice is to carry on life and they see what they see. If we cover this window we might as well live in a closet. What would you do? If they are up late at night we will have bright lights cascading in through our second story onto our bed. This is something we are still mulling over. Stay tuned later as they finish their renovations, I will be putting a slide show together with alternating before and after pictures.

Sometimes stepping back and waiting for guidance is a must. I feel Terry and I are there right now. We seem to be stumbling a bit frantically trying to protect our privacy. When TP saw Dr Steve, our physician, yesterday, Steve was saying in his exclusive neighborhood, the lot next door bent the rules and they lost 100 percent of their backyard privacy. I laughed as Terry told him we lost that and our bedroom privacy, our garden room privacy, our dining room privacy and our living room privacy. It is rather dark over here, causing us much confusion and indecision. We must turn to God's light to find our way out of this muddled mess that is no longer our sanctuary.

The light of God will show us the wisdom of what direction we will go. Terry and I remain in constant communion with Him allowing His peace to fill us in these moments of questioning.
I imagine I will be forced to call Three Day Blinds today.

The will of God will not take you where the grace of God will not protect you.

God will light the way for you as well. Accept His blessing in your life today and go forth confidently that you are on the right path.


"When he entered the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, 'Do you believe that I am able to do this?' They said to him, 'Yes, Lord.'" Matthew 9:28

Laurie, I love your "Eggs In A Basket" creation!
But oh my, what a distressing for you to be in with that life altering creation next door to you. I have no idea what I would do - so, so sad for you and Terry.
Love you,
