I was so in love with my Papa, the man I’d hope my husband would be just like – who lived out each day full of character and integrity – making a difference in our world we live in. He was so quiet at home, yet commanded such a profound respect. Wise. Honest. Loyal. Loving. Generous. Faithful. Proud. Humble. Firm. Respected. Esteemed. Honored. Edified. Son. Brother. Husband. Father. Grandfather. Great-Grandfather…..my Papa.
I love my Grammy differently…she was the one who taught me more than I could ever share – how to keep a home, cooking, baking, cleaning, laundry, budgeting… She was loved deeply by her husband and she honored and served him. Wise. Discerning. Loving. Faithful. Respected. Deeply loyal. Gracious. Servant. Daughter. Sister. Wife. Mother. Grandmother. Great-Grandmother. Friend. Disciple. Some say, a prophet….it was because she fell in love with Papa, that I’m part of a very unique legacy.
I don’t know that I’ve really ever expected this day to come….
The home that they built 20+ years ago is being emptied….SO MANY LIVES have been impacted significantly within those walls….mine especially. I could fill ten pages with memories but most profound is the day my heart was broken and the first place I sought refuge, was here. I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else to talk to anyone else. There I sat, at the feet of my Papa’s chair exposing my deepest feelings – and was allowed to. It was the night I knew that they’d love me unconditionally, and that this house – was a home – a refuge for me when I was weary….
Our family has been praying for the potential new owners of this house since it went on the market…that they would feel the love that was shared for so many, many years and would appreciate my Grandparents impeccably maintained investment – The Moore Homestead. Several Sunday’s ago, a Realtor showed the house….an offer came in the next day. There on the offer letter was the new owners name… signed, TMoore. God is VERY interested in the little details of life…The Moore Homestead will remain, The Moore’s Home.
