Building Our House on a Rock

Our little house is moving right along!  We have a roof and windows and doors.  Even siding!  It’s just sitting there looking all housey.  We still have another 2 months worth of long nights and hard work but it sure is looking like our home a little bit more each day.  We even went out and put our stamp on it last weekend.

God is the foundation of our family and he will always be the foundation of our home.  So we decided to put it in writing.  I grabbed a few sharpies and some scripture and we got to work.

Even Z got to pitch in.  However, we made it very clear this is a one time only opportunity to draw on the walls!
