Last week we received a letter from KCPL telling us that they plan to build high voltage power lines on or near our property and would like us to attend a meeting to learn more and give our input. WHAT?! This just cannot be happening! I am trying very hard not to be stressed out since we really don't know anything but they could totally ruin our dreams and this beautiful acreage with two words: eminent domain.
Today we met with our architect and went over the drawings once again. Then we went out to the site and did a quick stake out of the site. Nothing official -- just putting some visual markers on the property to get some idea where the house will be and what great views we will have from the various rooms! It is so beautiful out there. I spent some time walking around and B and I spent a good deal of time riding around on the four-wheeler. It would be such a loss to have a place this beautiful ruined by power lines.
I am trusting God. He knows what is best for us. He has our best interest in His plan and His plans are to prosper us not to harm us. So that said, I am trying very hard not to worry.
