New Home Build Construction | Writing Scripture

We have owned our property to build on for three years now!  In some ways it seems like a long time between then and now, and in other ways, I still remember it like yesterday when we first looked at the lot.  I remember the exact way my heart felt at ease and filled w/ joy while driving away, after watching the kids take off to play w/ our neighbors.  We also got to meet the neighbors, and chat for a bit.. Erik & I both knew it was exactly where we wanted to continue raising our family.

I saw this idea a couple of years ago, and have been looking forward to doing this w/ our family.  There is something so special about literally surrounding yourself w/ the word of God.  The kids thought it was cool that mom was actually telling them to write in their room w/ permanent marker! lol

What a great Sunday afternoon!

Kaylor wrote this verse in her room: 

Ashlyn wrote: as we come and go God loves us

Little man wrote drew himself (that’s a mohawk) and “5 people” for our family.

This made my heart into a puddle in Rowen’s room: 

Then the girls started writing silly things.. It wouldn’t have been a normal day for us w/out some sister orneriness. 

Ashlyn responded w/ “Kaylor is not coming in here” .. lol

When I started coming down the ladder to the basement, all these yahoos made a “Whooaaaaa” sound to tease me… Good thing I adore them all, and I’m used to their shenanigans 🙂 
Here are the verses that we used, and the kids wrote their own sentiments too, which I loved!

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord – Joshua 24:15

Taste and see that the Lord is good!  Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!  -Psalm 34:8

Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.  -Deuteronomy 28:6

We love because he first loved us.  -1 John 4:19

For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.  -1 Corinthians 3:11

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  -John 3:16

And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.  -Luke 1:45
