This is our first house. I guess I took this the day
we were moving in. We had just been married for
7 months and we were so excited. I wish I had a
after photo. When we bought it had been a rental for
years and years, it had the ugliest green shag carpet.
The kitchen was painted brown and the cabinet doors
were shutters. I loved this little house and we lived in
it for 12 years, we went from being newly married to
married with 4 kids and expecting our 5th and one
We moved, but I never took any pictures of the outside
of our next house. It was a fixer upper too. But sort
of like a nightmare from Elm Street kind of house.
Nothing in it was ever easy to fix. My husband hated
it but it had tons of storage. Someday I will write about that
house. Lets say, it was unique. We lived there 9 years.
This is where we live now. I am showing this picture for
Kim at whitewhispers2you . I told her I would show
her a picture of my farm house and this is it.
I love this house and thinking about the other houses
I have lived in I really like this one. I hope God lets me
live here until He is ready for me to live in the mansion
He has prepared for me.
This is the kind of house that everywhere you go there is a
place to rest. I think that is why I love it so much because
in my other houses I was always wanting the moon. Godliness
with contentment is great gain. ( 1 Timothy 6:6)
I always wanted that but there was always this striving
after the world and all it had to offer and it wasn't until
I moved here that I became at peace. Now I worry about
complacency. I am so content. So I thought I would share
this. I am so thankful to live here and most of the time,
I can't believe it is me.
I hope you have a lovely Sunday.
