Love in the neighborhood

We were trying to decide which house to buy. One had all we needed and even included and a corner office with a separate entrance. It was perfect in all ways with one exception. The owner told us that she enjoyed the house but then she confided, "To be quite frank with you, the neighbors are not too friendly." This saddened me, since I was going to be working at home and had hoped for a warm, folksy neighborhood.

My husband and I had learned to turn to God for comfort and for guidance when we faced this kind of decision. From past experiences, we had learned that prayer would bring us fresh wisdom and judgment where human reasoning fell short.
