These last few days have been all over the place for us. We have been working on revamping some of the aesthetics of our youth spaces at church, visiting with some of our past students who were in town for winter break, gearing up for a new year in student ministry and house updating all while trying to squeeze in some rest when we have a moment or two while our sweet little boy cuts a new tooth. Rest and teething just don't equate but we are ready to get rolling into a new year. Before we go all gung-ho on you we think it would be a good time to stop and take a look back on some of the things that happened on this little blog last year, so sit back, relax and come on this journey with us....
first post that kicked this whole thing off.
finances in order and another on how we felt about being home owners.
knotty pine cabinets, our master bedroom paneling, our kitchen backsplash and our bathroom floor. Paint is the ultimate in bang for your buck.
our chalkboard closet doors, new bathroom faucet, our low-cost bathroom mirror update and of course our new kitchen light (my most hated foe, the giant fan is finally gone).
5. God's Truth: One of the things I love most about this blogging experience is how it has allowed me to reflect on God's truth in the little things of life. God is at work all around us, he brings his message to us through his word, through other believers, through circumstances and through prayer. I have experienced God this year as I have prayed while painting, contemplated his love through organizing our bathroom, been reminded of a scripture while filling in holes in our kitchen and been uplifted by so many wonderful and godly people through comments and messages through this blog. Our God is truly amazing, he continues to pour out his love on us in our everyday life, even when we find ourselves busy, hurried and overwhelmed - He is there. My prayer for this next year would be that we would all not find ourselves to busy with life to not meet God in our day to day, our chores and our work - that living would mean believing that every breath is a gift from the most Generous Giver. Let's meet with God this year.
