Our Home

Our first home. 

We bought this in 2010 with the knowledge this home would need some serious love.  If you are a homeowner of a house that needs renovations, you'll understand the next sentence(s). 

It is HARD WORK.  It's constant, every-day-small-project-unfished-work, kind of work. 

It wears you out. 

But, I hear it's really worth it.

Unfortunately, I haven't reached the "payoff" yet.  But, I trust we will.  In an effort to keep my morale and attitude up - I'm posting about my honest feelings and hoping others share the same.  I DO know there are others out there that are participating in the same projects and have reached the "other side" and can relate.  Like my post here, you'll see my rays of sunshine.  I hope to post many more stories and updates as we move along in our process.

However, in all serious-ness, I want to be frank and say, I'm not here to blog about nonsense and things that aren't real in my life.  If nothing else, this is my attempt to journal so others can relate to the every-day projects, life, or sewing - whatever it is, there IS hope.  I know it.  I live for it and trust IN it every day of my life.  And, remember, at the end of the day, count the things that really matter. 

I remind myself everyday when I see the gutted bathroom, the unfished backsplash, all the missing outlet covers and my master suite I may or may not ever enjoy, that: "...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Phil. 1:6

Now, for someone who has an unfinished home starring everyday at her - THIS is encouraging.  Isn't it great to know that HE is at work and He WILL carry it out to completion?
