Just a note to all you friends.  You know, the note that lets you know what's going on with me?  (It's also Food Friday with a recipe for Cilantro Grilled Corn--check it out!)

Full of gratefulness
The Lord has so lifted the weight off of my shoulders that I have been full of peace, gratefulness and calm.

Today is actually our anniversary, too!  He took the day off today, but we celebrated earlier, knowing we'd be in a remodeling mess today.  I'm grateful for 33 years together and for a wonderful husband--a gift from God.  In honor of that, please read this post on the Meaning of Wedding Traditions!

The wood floor installation was finished Tuesday.  Wednesday we were away most of the afternoon and evening with cousins in town.  I am getting my days all mixed up, but I guess it was Tuesday that besides painting and giving my son a haircut, I linked up with Raising Homemakers for the first time!  Check it out, and then hop on over there--last day today.

Remodeling Saga
Yesterday the carpeting partially went in and the installer/friend just arrived to finish the job--Praise the Lord!  We really love the way it all looks!

More Lessons Learned From Laying Flooring
Two thoughts that have come to mind as I've watched the meticulous work of our friend/installer, and watched my husband work so hard to prepare for the work to be done:
"Excellence is never an accident."
We must prepare our hearts to walk in God's ways.  It is never an accident that we walk a straight path and follow the Lord.  Intentionality.  Preparedness.  Prayer.  In order to put down a straight beautiful floor you need a firm and straight line to follow.  My husband always says, "Preparation is 90% of the job."  It's a reminder to me that in order to live a straight beautiful life you have to prepare your heart and lay a firm foundation of faith in Jesus Christ.

It's hot and humid today--and we didn't turn on the air...we've been carrying things upstairs, to put them back in place, that the carpet's in. But, that's just another side of love and marriage, right? Working together as a family.

We had such a lovely night out a couple of weeks ago, and I'm so glad it worked out to go! We celebrated with dinner at a very nice restaurant (I got a Groupon). Then we bought paint at Home Depot. How much more romantic can you get?
Bless ya,
