Boxes, Boxes and More Boxes

I wanted to take a few moments and let you see our move into our new to us house.  It took the movers one day to move us in.....

I  have to tell you I could not have done the across country move without JESUS!!! His words kept me going...."My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."(2Cor 12:9) I knew I needed to be strong in the Lord and His power to get me through. "For when I am weak, then I am strong." I needed to stay prayed up! Do you know what that means? To stay in God's read it everyday even if it's a minute. It gives you strength to make it through the best or worse day. Our words, our choices need to shine with the light of Jesus!

  I love to decorate so it will take me awhile to get it to reflect my taste. I will be patient and wait on the Lord.

Come on a little journey with me.... to peek inside our new to us home . I hope you enjoy the tour.....

This is looking into the living room.....the fireplace is on the right. In my last tablescape I showed you the is on the left.

Our dining room....I won't change the wall colors until I hear them speak to me. I think every house lets you know how it needs to be decorated. I think the walls are a cadet blue.

This is in the living room looking towards the kitchen....  Yes, I ate all the M&M'S on the counter! lol Moving is very stressful!

Master Bedroom...we worked in here this weekend! It is starting to look like we live here. I love the blue walls.....the old owner left me the curtains, quilt and the hanging lamps. But of course, that is another post!

Family room....It took us a week to decide what we should do with the furniture! This is as big as a two car garage....a little overwhelming!

In the back of the family room I have claimed both storage rooms as MINE!!!! By the little you see, can you guess what's going in there????? I am loving these!!!!

It is a mess....but I am just about unpacked downstairs! The movers told us we had over 250 boxes and about 2100 pounds of stuff! I have put everything in the room or place it belongs.
I now have to organize it.
I heard alot about  "The Container Store" and found one. So I feel confident my house will be as orgainzed as I can afford it to be! lol

I love decorating on a shoestring so you will see what I come up with as I go. I just have to remember to take pictures!!!! lol

Thank you for visiting!
Please leave a comment.....
I enjoy hearing from you! 

Blessings to you my friends,


  1. Oh how exciting!! I had not seen your new house yet. It looks incredible! I know it's overwhelming too, though. Definitely you have to keep leaning on Jesus! So nice to see your testimony:-) Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Well a big God Bless sent to you from Kansas!

    Moving is an experience. Been married 36 years and moved...I think it's now 17 times. Lost track.

    May your life be truly blessed by this new location.

    It will be fun to see how your rooms progress!

  3. Oh I know you're so happy to be in your new home....can't wait to see all your changes over the next few weeks -- moving is hard work!

  4. Oh, good luck with all the unpacking and organizing! What a huge job! Glad you've found the Container Store -- such a fun place to browse!
