Yes, that isn’t Selfish prayer at all. In fact, I think that is REAL prayer. We always say prayer is talking to God, but seem to think of it as a Vending Machine. Even when praying for someone else, we seem to have a habit of just praying for what people need, and not simply “talking” to God. Talk to him, Reba. Tell him how you feel, tell him what you want, just talk to him as if he is your father.

It sounds lime a really nice house! Historic homes are really neat. OH! I have an idea. What if you could find out something about the history of the home, and then feature it in a newspaper or something. Or have a historical society help you. That could really pique interest in the home; maybe put replica glass doorknobs on the doors and everything to give it a taste of nostalgia. There are many people who would buy the house for that reason alone! Smiley

I'll be lifting you up in prayer, sister. Smiley

Thank you Tibby. That is wonderful advice.

Lord

Please show me your path out of this place physically and spiritually. Only with Your carrying me have I made it this far. Remove me from this wilderness open my eyes to your sun rise, turn my mourning to dancing. Lord comfort me in my time of need give me strength to stand wherever You place me both in the natural and spiritual. Your will is done Lord I pray your peace.
