Cadence Point is a intimate 31-home development located just minutes from downtown Brevard, North Carolina; one of America’s famous small towns.  Cadence Point, like Brevard manages the crafty procedure of honoring the past while looking forward at the same time. On one hand, Cadence Point is reminiscent of a classic neighborhood, with its inviting streetscape and homes that recreate a sense of Brevard’s architectural legacy. On the other, the entire community is designed for modern living, with a strong emphasis on sustainability.

The home designs of Cadence Point react Brevard’s architectural history, which was impacted by two important events: the arrival of Charlestonians in the late 1800’s and the area’s economic boom of the late 1930’s and 1940’s. As a result, homebuyers will see both low-country and craftsman style homes. While the styles are distinctive, they live well beside one another, as evidenced by Brevard’s classic neighborhoods, which are composed of both styles.

Cadence Point is located inside city limits so one can easily take advantage of existing parks, infrastructure and resources, instead of having to subsidize new ones in a suburban development.  Walk to your favorite restaurant or enjoy an evening shopping in one of Brevard’s unique boutiques.  In this community you will experience small town living with big town opportunities.

Extraordinary and Extravagant

These two words are the language of the Christmas story! They are the language of Habitat for Humanity. 

Earlier this year I traveled to Jordan on a Global Village trip with my son, Alexander, and students from his school. One day, the families with whom we were working took us on a picnic to an ancient park that overlooked the Sea of Galilee. Those of us on the team were in awe of the beautiful setting and were struck by the fact that what we were seeing was not that different from the view in biblical times. Despite all the turmoil that is happening in the Middle East, there was something extraordinary, peaceful and familiar about looking out upon the same water that was so central to the ministry of Jesus.

Then, just a couple of weeks ago in Haiti, I had another amazing experience that connected me with the Jesus who lived and walked among us. Liz Crossman, chair of our board of directors, described the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project as a case of extremes: “It was the most brutal, hot, humid, spiritual, loving, exciting, incredible week of my life.” I couldn’t agree more. We saw far too many people still living in desperate housing situations, but we were also privileged to see many families rebuilding their lives after finally having a place to call home. The extravagant outpouring of love and compassion offered to the people of Haiti has been incredible.

This is baby Sapir at 19 days old. She drew quite a lot of excitement and attention during the Carter Work Project this year. In 2011, I was privileged to work in Haiti alongside her dad to help build her family’s house. Imagine how their lives have changed in one year and the relief her parents feel now that they have a home in which to raise their new daughter. 

Seeing this beautiful child, I couldn’t help but think of the birth of another baby — the one who changed the world. Two thousand years after Jesus was born, we still marvel that God loved us so much that he gave us his only Son to demonstrate the extravagance of his perfect love.

When I spend time with Habitat homeowner families, I am inspired in so many ways. Seeing hope come alive makes me determined that we must do more. Looking into the eyes of excited children reminds me how blessed my family is. Marveling at baby Sapir made me shake my head and ask how I could possibly have a son graduating from high school this year and two teenage daughters. And on those days when I fret about budgets and policies and other challenges, I am able to refocus when I consider what an amazing impact Habitat for Humanity is making around the world. I would urge you to take a look at this year-in-review video and celebrate the exciting events of 2012. Your efforts have been extraordinary.

During the Advent season, we have been examining God’s extravagant love in a series of devotions. Click here to read the third meditation about the shepherds. It is entitled “An Event for Everyone.”

Finally, I urge you to enjoy the Christmas break. Take some well-deserved time to rest and relax and treasure time with friends and family. I pray that in the coming year you will experience God’s rich blessings and that your response will be an echo of gratitude and service.

The mountains of North Carolina are the perfect setting for a holiday getaway. Located in scenic Western North Carolina, Brevard features the very best the area has to offer, from a relaxed, rural atmosphere to the conveniences of a modern city. Its pleasant, unhurried small-town environment is rich in natural beauty, cultural heritage, and social amenities. Brevard’s  close proximity and easy access to major metropolitan areas like Asheville, Charlotte, Greenville and Atlanta make it an ideal place to live or visit. If you choose to visit, instead of staying at a large, impersonal hotel, why not try one of Brevard’s bed and breakfasts for a unique and personal vacation experience?

The Red House Inn is located in downtown Brevard, with plenty of shopping and dining experiences available within walking distance. It is also within a short driving distance of several local attractions, including the Dupont State Forest, the Pisgah National Forest, and the Brevard Music Center. The house was originally built in 1851 as a general store, and has since served as a courthouse, railroad station, school, and family home. Daniel and Tracie Trusler purchased the building in 2007. They renovated the guest rooms, bathrooms, and plumbing; in addition, they added satellite television, refrigerators, coffee makers, new mattresses, and high speed internet. In spite of the modern conveniences and comforts, the Red House Inn maintains the period features of the house, including sash windows and pine floors. There are five rooms available, as well as three vacation houses. 266 West Probart Street  Brevard, NC  (828) 884-9349

The Inn on Main Street is also located in downtown Brevard, and is also within walking distance of both shops and dining.

Each of the six rooms is uniquely decorated, with different combinations of beds ranging from single queen beds to one room which features a double bed and a twin bed. 243 West Main Street  Brevard, NC  (828) 884-4770

The Inn at Brevard began life as a private home built in 1885. It has been used as an inn since 1940, with the current owners filling it with an eclectic mix of antiques and works of art. There are six rooms in the main house, and eight more rooms in the annex. Each room is uniquely decorated and includes modern amenities. The inn is situated on 100 acres of land, which include one of the tallest privately-owned waterfalls in the Southeast. 315 East Main Street  Brevard, NC  (828) 884-2105
