Step one...

Officially our kitchen is under construction. We removed the cabinet above the refrigerator to prepare for the much anticipated stainless steel frig.

I should confess that this is the second time the frig will be delivered. Why you ask? Well, apparently when you measure for a frig before you install new flooring the measurements change. Huh? Who knew?

Measurements pre-hardwood floor, perfect fit. Measurements after installation, not so much.
We were off by 1 and1/8 of an inch. Oh well, it will make a great story in the end. If we can skate by with that as the only hiccup. Wahoo. Yeah, that could happen.

Big surprise in all of this, the builder didn't paint the wall behind the cabinets. I know with the quality homes in Highlands Ranch you are all mystified that this could be the case. I am sure with all the cookie cutter neighbors in the area ours is the only home that this is the case. Right!

Stay tuned for more including can't miss photos of the before and after.

I may even post the picture of the unpainted wall. I know hard to believe.

Walking in the Light

Wow! This year year has been a whirlwind to say the least. I am shocked we are near the half way point in February. Part of me wants to dance. If the start of the year is any indication of how it is going to go, I am happy it's flying by. I will usher in 2009 with bells and whistles.

Yet, I am humbly reminded that every day is a gift, and I need to walk in the Light. I need to let Him guide me through each day. I need to listen to His still, quiet voice...Yeah I know for me that's a stretch. I'm never still long enough to catch my breath.

As I write this, our dear neighbor of ten years is fighting stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I am awed by the faith she has in God. I am humbled by the fight she has within her to beat the demon we know as cancer. Hunter, in his six year old wisdom said to me, "Mommy, why are you sad? We are just going to pray and Jesus is going to make her better." The faith of a child and the living testimony of one who is dwelling in God's amazing grace reminds me to walk daily in the His unfailing light.
