farmhouse: floor verses.

The last of our flooring (carpet) is being installed today! So exciting! We are loving the wood floor! (Most of the main level.)
I'll post pictures of it soon, but wanted to share this first. 
I got the idea from some friends of ours who built a house a couple years ago. 

Even though we'll never see these (aside from pictures) the thought of them makes me smile... 

 {fyi... Sharpies did not work well. I got some heavy duty markers I had at school and those worked much better.}


The little office area between the mudroom and kitchen... 

 Inside the front door...


The dining room...






 In the living room, right in the middle of the house...

My knees after crawling around on the dusty floor...

We went out last night to finish the carpeted rooms.
Gretchen's room...
 {She's still the most joy filled little person I know!}


 Lawson's room...


Gretchen was super helpful...

Sophie's room...


Sophie wanted to add her own verse, too...


Basement family room...

Corey and I's bedroom...

And possibly my favorite...

Looking out over the barns and cows. =)
{Still l00% sure that this was all His plan for us and our little family.}



And... just to save you the trouble of looking it up: 
Ephesians 3: 16-19  (NIV)

"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. 
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, 
together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp
how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be 
filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
