What a Wonderful God!

I am sitting here in my living room looking back over the past few weeks and thinking about how richly God has blessed us lately.

When Bryan and I bought the house, we had a 6-12 month goal that we would eventually renovate the kitchen to add more counter space, cabinets, a vent hood microwave, and a dishwasher. Our church family decided after seeing our kitchen that they wanted this to be their project, and over the past two weeks, our kitchen has been transformed beyond what we had even hoped for originally. It's about 90% complete, and the total makeover should be finished within the next 2 weeks. As soon as it's finished, I'll take more pics.


Changes Made in Our Kitchen So Far:
  1. New Dishwasher
  2. More Countertop Space on Both Sides of the Kitchen
  3. Beautiful Tiled Countertops with a Backsplash
  4. New Sink with New Fixtures
  5. Sink Disposal
  6. New Plumbing and Wiring in Our Kitchen
  7. New Vent hood Microwave
  8. Crown Molding on Our Kitchen Cabinets
  9. Two New 3 Drawer Units Underneath New Countertop Space
  10. New Fridge (Courtesy of My Parents!)

Thanks to some generous move-in gifts, family, and friends, Bryan, JJ, and his dad were able to move the washer and dryer out of the pantry area and into our master closet. They installed new plumbing and rewired electrically to add the hookups. Bryan and his dad built a shelf around the hookups for my laundry supplies. Bryan and JJ tiled the laundry room area, built a false wall to enclose everything, added folding doors, and even added molding around the doors and on the ceiling to finish the look. Very professional!

I am so amazed and thankful for the generosity of God and others. I would've lived just about anywhere safe to get out of our old place, but God has blessed us with a home that is more beautiful than I would have ever hoped to have at this point in our lives. What a wonderful God we serve!

Isaiah 25:9-10
Also at that time, people will say,
"Look at what's happened! This is our God!
We waited for him and he showed up and saved us!
This God, the one we waited for!
Let's celebrate, sing the joys of his salvation.
God's hand rests on this mountain!"
