"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

We've Been Under Construction

We've been up to our elbows over the past 3 weeks
in demolishing and remodeling.  We had a plumbing leak in our kitchen that
we did not know about until it ended up in a closet in the bedroom
 on the other side of the wall.  
 Thankfully, we had good homeowner's insurance and then
we also decided this was the time to do a few extras.  

(A sneak peek and will show you more when it is finished)
 Here is Byron, our cabinet maker doing his great detail work.

Right now, while I post this,
 I am squeezed between
 our new dishwasher, yet to be installed into the kitchen,
 and the computer desk,
 along with boxes full of kitchen items,
 just so I can type up this post.

A couple of days ago, the oven range 
was sitting in our family room along with the refrigerator, 
while flooring was being laid
 both in the kitchen and in our bedroom. 

 So now you know why
 I haven't taken the time to post for so long.
I just couldn't get my brain out of chaos gear and into posting mode.

I hope you haven't had anything keeping you from
being all ready for Christmas.
So glad that even in the midst of unexpected chaos, that 
I can center on baby Jesus, laying in that lowly manger inside
of an animal stable.  It kind of puts everything in perspective!
So thankful that HE is my KING.

Now I need to go sweep up some sawdust!
