Hi everyone! Sorry for the delay in this post (seeing as how we did the project on Sunday..). But now that I’m layed up post-surgery for a bit- the posts should come flying in!
As you may have seen from my hubby’s lovely facebook spoiler- we had a group of folks from church as well as some family out to our house for a special time. Since we have wood frames up in all the rooms, we thought it would be a cool idea to write God’s Word all over the house. We know that after the drywall and paint come in, these words will likely never be seen again, it is comforting to know that we will be protected by Scripture from the very walls we sit within. Many people came out and wrote us beautiful verses- some pertained to the rooms they were in and others were simply verses of comfort and God’s love. Take a look!
Yes, yes, I know… not a verse… but on our front door!
Katie Burmeister came out with her two littlest ones, Lucy and Wally, to help write some of their favorite verses out (and some creative 3 year old-type drawings that we love as well!). She traced for them in pen, and Lucy and Wally wrote over this with sharpie. Thanks a million for sharing your cuties with us for an afternoon, Katie!
This is in our living room above the fireplace- it is a reminder to us that in all the times we have friends and family over, this is a house to celebrate unity in God 🙂
Our good friend, Craig Mauger came out to help as well. We missed his wife there but she is also 36 weeks preggers and wasn’t feeling good- we can give her lots of credit there! Craig wrote scripture all over our house! Each verse pertained to the room it was in and you could tell he put lots of care into them.
You may not be able to read this one too well because it is so long, but it’s probably one of my favorite verses in the house because it has so much meaning. This is above the door frame to our front door, and its a passage from Deuteronomy that Jewish families used to put above their door frame (and still do, I believe), as a reminder to themselves of the God they serve each time they pass under it. SO. SWEET. Thanks for this one, Josher!
“For He grants sleep to those He loves” -Psalm 127. Cayden Bunnell put this sweet verse in our master bedroom (fitting??). Cayden and his wife, Rachel came out with their ADORABLE 1 year old, Levi, and painted our house with their favorite verses!
Thanks Bunnells for sharing your verses and your cutie pie son with us!
Nicole, Josh’s sister, stopped by and wrote this sweet verse on the beam leading in to our front door! She was too quick for a picture of her and her verse, unfortunately. Thanks for coming out sis!
I wrote this in the downstairs bathroom. APPARENTLY, its hilarious…. not what I was going for. I thought it was more appropriate than anything else, but Josh seems to think it was the funniest thing I could have done. Lots of hyssop going on in this room, I suppose! I am going with it 🙂 Couple more photos peeps- hang in there!
Future nursery 🙂 🙂 🙂
Our good friends Steph and Caleb Miracle (and their handsome son Connor) weren’t able to make it on Sunday but asked if they could stop by Monday to write their verses out. We joined them and BOY DID THEY BRING ALOT of verses! So thankful to them for coming out even though we watched a thunderstorm roll in and almost got struck by lightning.
Loving the tongue out in concentration, Caleb. Didn’t even realize it was there till I looked at this picture on the computer!
After everyone left on Sunday, Josh and I went around and took pictures of every verse so we can have documented where they are at for future reference. We also took a couple pictures of the two of us near a few favorites that we may frame in the house when its done 🙂
And I will leave you with this last photo that Wally drew- the way a kid thinks just brings such a smile to my face!!
Welcome to Josh and Lien’s almost humble abode!!
A HUGE thank you, again, to all who came out to write scripture on our home. Not only will it be sweet for us to know that our house is covered in God’s Word, we have already heard good things from the construction crews as they work on the house and how much they love them! What a testament!
