We were given some money by the insurance company to fix some major wind damage to our home and barn roof. Michael will be doing the work himself so we had a bit of extra money left due to the fact that we wouldn't have to pay a roofing contractor. He took the extra money and bought the materials for my kitchen floor. (Nothing says "l love you" like covering up an ugly gold and yellow kitchen floor)!
Just a few days before Christmas, Michael and our son Joshua starting installing the floor. I was so excited! Here is Joshua putting down the last piece of flooring. Did you note that there are no more yellow and gold flowers showing?
Here is the final product. I am so thrilled and so grateful to the Lord that He knew my heart and provided something as trivial as a floor. Michael now has to make the cabinet baseboards, finish the cabinet doors, and put up crown molding. We are getting there slowly and I love my kitchen and my floor so much. If we had known that he was going to lose his contract, we would have never started the renovation in the first place. Since hindsight is 20/20, there isn't much we can do about it now. Truth be told I am glad we didn't know because I have this wonderful new kitchen that I LOVE to be in throughout the day. I love to work in here and I love to play in here too. For the first time since we have bought this farm, I really really love my house. I have always been thankful for my home, but there were always things about it that I wanted to be different. The rooms were to small to entertain and I wanted a great room. After much hard work from my husband, I now have my great room. Did I mention that I love it? Did I mention how nice it is to have a roaring fire going that I can see from my kitchen? Did I mention just how much I love my husband?
grace and peace,
