Praying for a Miracle

Today I found the perfect home for the knitting retreat. It's true that God always upgrades. If you've been following this blog for a while, you know that I've been on quite an odyssey looking for the perfect place for this retreat. Each site has been more beautiful and more suitable than the last, and with each property, God has revealed more and more of His intentions. Where this seems to be going is totally different from what I'd first thought, but that's not surprising, considering that this is God's vision, not mine. The great news is that not only is this site perfect, but it's also much LESS expensive than the others and is in absolute move-in condition!
Of course, it's not cheap, but then neither is God. If it's His will for us to locate the retreat here, He will make it happen.

The property is an existing bed & breakfast in a small bayfront town. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The kitchen (commercial-grade with subZero refrig!)

The perfect room for knitting




The gardens




I'm going to be working like crazy to finalize my 501(c)(3) application for the IRS next week. (Wish me luck). But more importantly, I'll be praying for this property. I'm praying that if it's God's will that this property be used as a knitting retreat for women who have been sexually assaulted, that He will open doors to make it happen. Please join me in praying for this project.
