I have chosen a name for our new home and it is not even one that was on the list..
the story goes like this. Joe & I went for a walk on Sunday afternoon, after dinner. We drove to Leura and parked the car and walked along some streets.. taking a little detour up a back street to get to a very big hill that would test our stamina... walking along chatting & I was telling him that the name just had to have some kind of spiritual connection.. I mentioned maybe calling it Mary's House.. but we both agreed that sounded a little odd... I tossed out names like Fatima, Lourdes and the ever popular Lisieux.. but they were not right.. it was like the name was on the tip of my tongue
walking along past some old mountains cottages, enjoying the changing leaf colours and the currawongs in the trees.
i had an urge to look into a garden at a house and the first thing I saw was the name:
'that's it!' I cried out, asking dutch husband what he thought of the name Villa Maria and thinking to my self, how perfectly perfect it was. he of course would be happy with whatever name I chose. he is just like that.
so the name will be Villa Maria.
and Joe will build me a wayside shrine for just near the gate to put my new Fatima statue in.. and then I can place flowers in it every day and maybe even burn candles at night.
we don't know when we are moving. we have to sell Inglewood first. But we do get the key to our new home at the end of April and we can start doing things to it in the meantime.
I pray for a quick easy sale. but i keep 'hearing' the words 'divine time'.. each and every time I gallop into future thoughts. it will sell at the right time, to the right people. I will continue to nurture the garden until my time is done here.
[please bare with me if I don't visit much this week. I have my hook needle biopsy on Thursday and I am a little scared about it [like worried about it hurting, what a baby!].. so my mind is not functioning that well .. I will come visit blogs as I can xo]
