we had a big remodel done on our house this summer…
- 1+ year in the making
- whole house
- new paint, trim, doors, and kitchen
- 5 weeks away from home
you would think i would be THRILLED to get home and put it all back together. have our family back together under one roof. in OUR home.
i didn’t want to go home. i was terrified. i cried. lots of tears.
i honestly thought about staying in colorado where, for the first time in a long time, i felt safe, loved, and supported.
you see, the problems weren’t in the old trim, paint, cabinets, doors, or countertop.
the problems were (are) in the foundation.
a house that feels brand new with a happy, bright yellow door might look good from the outside, but it will crumble to rubble eventually without a solid foundation.
the foundation has been cracked and patched up over the years. in fact, i’m not sure it was ever built well in the first place.
the name of this blog is “home is what you make it”…happy colors, cheerful words, and eclectic decor sure can make your home one of a kind. it can even make you happy, but it doesn’t build a foundation.
only FAITH can do that.
brick by brick.
day by day.
“the wisest of women builds her house” proverbs 14:1
