Have you ever sold your home, and return to it every once in awhile to take a look at it again?
Great Question , as in many things in life , I do that! I actually missed my log cabin until I saw what the property taxes were , $4,000 a year! No thanks.
I do this with homes that I even rented. It is a good trip down memory lane.
Recently, I had the unpleasant task of attending an aunt's funeral in the town I was born. I went by all the old homesteads. I even made pictures of myself sitting on the porches of these old family homes, that were long ago sold. It had been over 25 years since I had been to any of them. I currently buy and sell homes, and I always drive by them if I am in the area. It reminds me of an old country song by Merle Haggard, "Three miles down a gravel road, I could see the proud old home, a tribute to a way of life that's almost come and gone. The roots of my rasin' run deep, I come back for the strength that I need, and hope comes no matter how far down I sink, the roots of my raisin' run deep."
I did that once and found it very disturbing. It looked the same, at least from the outside, but I was overcome with a tremendous sense of loss. The strange thing was I liked the house, when I lived there, but I didn't think I liked it that much!
I have done this also. It is a sentimental drive through and I do it every now and then.

People were spreading rumors about me in my church, alleging that I was having an affair with a married woman. I confronted them about it, but they lied and said they weren't spreading them. They said they only heard the rumors but didn't believe them. Time and other people that heard the rumors...
