Cupboard Doors

Psalm 27:14
"Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take 
courage; yes, wait for the Lord."

One of the projects we've wanted to do on our house is our cupboard doors. We haven’t had any since we moved in four years ago, and we didn’t quite make our goal of getting them in by the time our baby was mobile. We pooled some Christmas presents together and were able to order a pretty and economical design for the lower cabinets that I’m really excited about. My husband slaved away on Friday while I watched our son, and got all of the holes filled and the cupboard facing sanded, primed, and painted. There was just enough time to drill the holes for the hinges in one of the doors and to mount it on. Now I'm excited we got our first cupboard door on! It feels like a huge step, and I am so grateful.

Even if they aren't finished, just having them up will be immensely helpful with our little man. It’s hard to believe the extra energy we burn chasing him around, trying to keep his little hands out of the cupboards. I remember sitting on the kitchen floor as a child, playing with pots and lids while my mom cooked or cleaned, and nurture the hope I might get to do that pretty soon with my little man. (She didn’t have cupboard doors, either, but I was old enough by then to know what I could and couldn’t play with!)

. The Lord will provide. It may not be in the timing you expect or desire, but God's blessings are never late! I am so thankful (and excited) to be one step closer to a fixed-up home, a child-proof home, and even to the look we would like to have in our home. I feel so blessed the Lord would choose to see these small desires met in His own timing - the best timing there is!
