A Blessing in Every Room

We stopped by the house today to check on the progress.  Supposedly AC and plumbing are in, and we are meeting with the builder on Thursday to do our Pre-Drywall walk-thru before they put in electricity and wall everything up.  When we were in Georgia in May, our Aunt Robin showed us the fabulous thing they did when they were building their house…..and we decided to copy it!  Imitation is the highest form of flattery right?! =)

I went on Amazon and found this book:

And, since we had seen this book originally at Robin and Bill’s house, we knew it would be the perfect place to start recording our own memories in the new house!  In addition to little write-in areas, the book also has some appropriate Bible verses for each room listed.  So we piggy-backed off of Robin and Bill again and went over to the house today to write some of the verses from the book, and some of our favorites from the Bible, on the foundation and studs in each of our rooms.  Check it out:

    This is such a wonderful way to cover your home in Scriptures. We’ve done this very same thing in our home in GA, and in Summerville (when we replaced the floors). This is probably one of your most special posts! So glad you recorded this in photos. Your children will see this one day when they can truly appreciate the significance.

  4. What a lovely, lovely thing to do!! And it is great that you got pictures of each one!

    • Thanks Tonia! Like I said, I can’t take credit for the idea…but hopefully this will be one of the first of millions of memories in our new home!

  5. I love the idea of leaving Scripture around a house, but have you read Luke 12:19? In it, God is calling the statement you wrote on your wall foolish. You might want to check into that one.
