He wanted to build Her a cabin, one that they could grow old in. Raise a family, have dinner conversations that would last through the night. He wanted to have a place that He could teach His son how to live and love, how to treat others and trust God; a place where He could teach His daughter to see life as something that is beautiful, where He could spin her around and create inside jokes that would last a life time with His little girl. He wanted a place that overlooked a lake so that He could spend misty mornings with His wife, holding Her hand and standing still. He wanted to have a house that could hold family for the holidays, one that would be filled with laughter and the smell of coffee. He wanted to build a place that held memories of love, tears and redemption.
“Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.

“It’s a marvelous thing, the ocean. For some reason when two people sit together looking out at it, they stop caring whether they talk or stay silent. You never get tired of watching it.

“Never apologize for how you feel. No one can control how they feel. The sun doesn’t apologize for being the sun. The rain doesn’t say sorry for falling. Feelings just are.”— Iain S. Thomas, Intentional Dissonance
