Masculine Card

Howdy and Welcome to my Blog!
I am excited to have the opportunity to create today. I have not been creating for some time now due to our move from our home of 19 years to a rental home.  My camera is packed so I am using the camera on my phone to take the pictures.

In August we will be moving to our new condo. I am so excited and blessed to live in this community for the remainder of my life unless the Lord returns. 

Hubby and I are looking forward to sharing our home with others with food, fun and fellowship. We hope to form a small group that will meet a couple times a month in our home.

Here are some photos of building in progress - we have an attached condo - Lot 38 - on the right is our home.

Side and back of condo
 We have written many scriptures throughout our home, as well as prayer and request to God - here are a few photos of our writings.
We are asking the Lord to Bless the carpenters that are building our home

We realize this house belongs to the Lord and we want to bless others using our home for HIS purposes

We know we must always Trust in the Lord

We want our home to be a Home of PEACE to all that Enter

 Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week! ~ Gail ~

I love all the scripture and blessings you have incorporated into your home. I wasn't able to do that with my home because it was already built but if I ever build my dream home it will most certainly be doing it. Have a blessed week!
