Wall be Gone {Remodel day 2}

{Total cost so far...$62.00...$42.00 for waterproof sheetrock and $20.00 to Caleb for his happy attitude in offering his help with demo!}

In talking with my other bestie{Carolyn} last night...a bathroom remodel seems so insignificant in the midst of what all is going on in the lives of so many right now.

Several friends are facing cancer as I type and my hubby and brother-in-law are attending the funeral of the Chief of Police in Rainier as he was shot this last week. My heart just breaks! I know that we can't live a life consumed by fear, nor can we live in a state of focusing on all of the horrible things that seem to be happening around us.

How good is it to know that we are not without HOPE! And that God is able to give peace!

"The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him." Lamentations 3:25

So, let's just remember as we bake yummy foods, have fun with our family and friends, work on remodels, play games with our children...not to be so consumed with what we have going on in our own lives that we are not able to take time to comfort those around us...

"Comfort, comfort my people, says your God." Isaiah 40:1

Have a blessed weekend!
