God is chuckling : )

Monday, January 16, 2012

When we moved into our house two-and-a-half years ago, I told David, "Those are the ugliest cabinets I have ever seen. But, we won't ever get new ones, because I don't want to spend the money on cabinets."

Well...I think that God is chuckling right now, because we are currently the proud owners of an amazing set of custom cabinets. They can either sit in our garage, or we can put them in our own kitchen. Quite incredibly, David will only have to modify one cabinet in order for them to fit in our kitchen. Soooo, we are doing some remodeling this week! And because David is a carpenter, he has enough leftover materials from other jobs that all that we need to buy in order to finish this job is a used oven fan for $20 (ours is broken) and some paint.

Here's a sneak peek of our new cabinets.

I'd much rather have the money (for R.'s adoption), but if it had to be something, at least it was something we could really use!

Yep. God is definitely laughing right about now!

I love it!!! God is so good. So thankful that He has changed your perspective on the situation.

And the cabinets are beautiful, too.

I am so happy. We recently redid our kitchen. After that, I didn't mind working so hard every day in there! It did lift my spirits when things were nice and clean for a change.

Been out of town, so I missed the "quess what we're doing"... and got right to the current post. LOVE the cabinets, and your sweet husband is soooo awesome, which you know ..... to work on this for your family! I'm so happy you are at peace with the adoption fund... and making the best out of things... it will all come together at just the right time (the adoption...and now too, a beautiful kitchen).. God has a way of surprising us, huh? p.s. I'd love to redo my kitchen, Brad keeps saying...keep wishin'

Brad and Renae said...
