The Difference Between Him and Us

Our Home Remodel

This past summer we came home to find our house flooded
and what has since unfolded has been one of the most

amazingly scary
shockingly revealing

experiences of my life
(to date)

I have...

talked to God in new ways
heard Him speak in new ways and
seen Him do things I hadn't even dreamed of

and when it was all said and done

I witnessed Him turn our MESS into a MESSAGE!

(thank you Chanea for reminding me again)

The Living Room
During renovation

The Kitchen

And I've always believed, but now I know for sure that...

God really did make a man from dust

because I have seen Him take

our dust
our rubbish
our tragedy

and turn it into something beautiful

Romans 8:28

Learning to Use What You Have... Earring Display

Last year I discovered the joy and beauty in repurposing...

and when I turned an old cd storage tower
into an earring display rack

I fell in love with learning to use what I have!

And after our recent home remodel

as we began

unpacking and
resorting our lives

I took one look at that former cd storage tower
and decided to flip it back over into its original resting position

Now it provides more space and I can sort my earrings by color!

And it is amazing how something I already have can make me smile
as I realize that there is so much joy in learning to use what you have
