In My Kitchen is a small glimpse of life “in my kitchen.”
We are a family of seven . . . mom, dad and 5 kids. We live in a large, two-story (plus a basement), 4 bedroom home. From the looks of the rooms, we really do live in them all. Most days though, it seems like all of life happens . . . “in my kitchen.”
So, welcome. Come on in, but please, watch your step! The floor is strewn with legos of various sizes, shapes and colors. Dolls of — well, various sizes, shapes and colors adorn most surfaces, so check before you sit down! Construction paper projects and scripture verses grace the walls next to marks left by stray writing utensils. If I forget to offer you a drink, make yourself at home and fill the tea kettle or grab a glass of water. There are usually fresh lemons in the fridge.
What else will you find here? You’ll find life as we know it . . . a little bit of everything that happens among the spices and the dishes.
Just remember, we live in the real world. No matter how things appear here, we could, on any given day, be slightly — or maybe more — disorganized, dirty or downright discouraged. Our days and what they hold will never really be as pretty or put together as they appear in a blog post.
This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I have hope in Him. The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him. Lamentations 3:21-25
