In honor of our Housewarming Pregame this past weekend…

It has been a LONG time since I’ve written on here… So many things have happened in the last few months: I watched friends celebrate their love by getting married, I have been to Spain, France and Italy on a Mediterranean cruise, and I moved into a new place! Since this past weekend was the first weekend since moving in early June where all 3 of us were in Richmond, we decided to have a Housewarming Pregame this weekend. In honor of that… I decided it was finally time to break the blogging drought and post some before and after pictures. Looking through these again has reminded me how far our place has come. So proud of all the work we’ve put in… Hope you like it!

Outside: My awesome Padre & Mama helped to improve the curb appeal by cleaning off spider webs, sweeping & planting plants. Shannon, my roommate, painted the planter boxes & I took care of the weeding.

Give Me Faith

Give me faith

“I need You to soften my heart,
To break me apart.
I need You to open my eyes,
To see that You’re shaping my life.

Pre-Chorus:
All I am,
I surrender.

Chorus:
Give me faith to trust what You say
That You’re good, and Your love is great.
I’m broken inside, I give You my life.

Verse 2:
I need You to soften my heart,
To break me apart.
I need You to pierce through the dark
And cleanse every part of me.

Chorus

Bridge:
I may be weak, but
Your Spirit’s strong in me.
My flesh may fail, but
My God You never will.”
