I love the new grays that are at Sherwin Williams right now.  I also love their 40% off sale!

We got some paint for the kitchen Friday and I spent all day Saturday painting the breakfast nook.  I did it in two shades.  A lighter shade behind the buffet that we are (still) building and a slightly darker shade of the same family on the other three walls.  Here are some pics.

Ignore the mess in the buffet...I'm using it to hold all the painting stuff right now.  lol

We also got the stiles and rails jointed, planed, and cut for the doors. Now I have a lot of sanding to do!  Twelve stiles and twelve rails...ugh. We have three to redo because the router took some bites out of them that it shouldn't have.  I guess it was hungry.  :)

Sealed by God
By Max Lucado
As a parent, when our children stumble, we don’t disown them. We may punish or reprimand, but cast them out of the family? We cannot. They are biologically connected to us. Those born with our DNA will die with it.God, our Father, engenders the same relationship with us. Upon salvation we become, as John 1:12 says, “children of God.” He alters our lineage, redefines our spiritual parenthood, and in doing so, secures our salvation. Paul says, “Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit” (Ephesians 1:13). And a soul sealed by God is safe! God paid too high a price to leave us unguarded.Again, a reminder from Paul in Ephesians 4:30, “He has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.” What a difference this assurance makes!
