Scripture on the Semi-Homemade Structure

Say that three times fast!  I first saw this idea once when walking a house under construction (mr. fix-it and I have loved walking houses for as long as we've been together!  even before mr. fix-it was a builder, when we lived in Lawrence, KS, and he was an investor accountant!)  But as much as I loved the idea, I never remembered to do it during the framing stage.  Until now.

So... We started with my all time fav... Then I consulted with friends and searched the web until I found 2 Bible verses, perfect for the occasion.  Here I am, adding one over the fireplace:

The verse is from Proverbs:

A quick update on the view from outside!  I'm so excited that mr. fix-it and I decided to add those 2 windows over the garage.  We won't finish it now, but in the future the space behind those windows can be finished out to be bedroom #5!

The verse on the eat-in bar in the kitchen reads:
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Psalm 23

(Don't laugh at G-man's outfit in the background.... that's the result of ALL his shorts - except the gray/white plaid shorts with skulls - being in the load of laundry that was the Purple Crayon Incident.  And yes, he has shirts that match these shorts... but none of them have bicycles on them and that boy is OBSESSED.  Nothing but bicycles would do that day.  So... I give you... G fashion.)

Thessalonians 5:16.... my fav verse.  Over our front door in the entry way.  I think it's a good reminder.  I want this to be my first thought when I come home and my last thought when I leave!

 I voted mr. fix-it to write this important verse over the door!

Then the kiddos got in on the action!  We let them write their names on the floors in their bedrooms.  Then Sissy got carried away, and before I knew it, she had all 4 of our names in almost every room!  LOL!

I didn't get a good pic of G-man getting permanent marker on his only non-crayon shorts writing his name.  But here he is, in that crazy outfit, peeking thru the walls of what will be the closet under the stairs!

This was so much fun... definitely a new Semi-Homemade tradition (even though we hope to only build one more house and then settle for awhile!)
Wait til y'all see the cute stuff I got in Canton - update to come!
