On being overwhelmed and God’s providence.
< < < < < < > > > > > >
When we bought our farm house in the fall of 2015, I felt overwhelmed to say the least. Our first step was to find a company that would move our entire home so that we could build a foundation. Move a house? Are we crazy? Sometimes I felt like it. So we started in on Phase One – the foundation and new siding and windows.
I have journaled a lot throughout this process because I didn’t want to forget all the wonderful things that I learned through all the trials, joys, and accomplishments. One of the things I wrote down in my journal was a comment my sister Lynette told me on a day when I was feeling like I had a mountain to climb. She said,
” Just take it one step at a time and trust God to supply the people you need when you need them.”
I have clung to her words and have been amazed as they have come true. I have not been disappointed with any of the workers or the jobs they have done on the house. It has been a time of incredible growth as I learn that I can climb this mountain one step at a time.
We lost a good worker, Jerry, to a new job he took as the head of Habitat for Humanity here in Wichita. But it wasn’t long before God provided another awesome guy, Steve, who is currently working on our upstairs trim, doors, and putting in our ship lap in the bathroom.
Here are a few pictures of his work.
We are already starting to put pictures on our pinterest account of barns we like even though this phase is way down the road, but its fun to dream. Here’s a few pictures we like.
I have also discovered wooden quilts that can be put on barns or houses. How cute! I want to make one of these some day.
