Like Alan Jackson said in the 90's..."It's alright to be little-bitty"
I adore little bitty.
But...I also like my personal space...I'm complicated. :)
I think the addition to the parsonage is going to offer the best of both worlds...enough space yet cozy rooms. Sounds nice.
The addition project to the parsonage is coming along so, so well. I can hardly believe it. I like to stand inside of it and imagine actually having people over without hours spent rearranging furniture in order to make standing room.
When finished, the parsonage will definitely not be little bitty anymore. We will have room to spread out...room for people. I am excited about room for people.
Last time I blogged about it (in June) it looked like this:
You might notice it has two doors, right beside each other. The plain one on the left goes straight into the laundry/mud room and a hall to the bathroom. The door on the right, or as I call it, "The Pretty Door" (because I'm so in love with it.) will be the main entry. With this set up, the kids will use the door to the mudroom to bring in their mud, thus keeping the other entry (into the dining/kitchen area MUCH cleaner. YAY!
I'm super excited about this door. I'm planning on painting them dark gray.
What amazes me most about the whole addition is the fact that it's being built by the guys in our church, who are sacrificing their time and energy to bless our family (and their wives and children are too!). It's amazing. And humbling. And makes us so thankful for our church family here...not because they're building us this big house, but because their hearts and actions show such love and humility...it is truly an honor to serve with people like that.
