When you drive by an abandoned house what do you think, or do you even give it a second thought?
There are three of these houses along the highway between the city I now live in and the town I grew up in. I have passed them several times and my mind always goes back to the same questions.
To me these houses look sad, where are their families?
I try to imagine what the families would be like. What kind of blessings did God bestow on them. What were the joys and sorrows that were shared within the walls.
After all these houses were someones home at one time. What were their dreams what were their failures? What was the color of the house and how did they decorate the inside.
My guess is that they were farmers. The second house still has a partial barn on the land in the back. I did notice that there is hay in the barn so it may not be original with the house.
Both houses are close to the highway and rest right next to fields.
If walls could talk, what would they say? If you would like to make up a memory for one of these houses I would love to post it. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great day.
