The Kitchen Timer

Have you ever prayed for something and gave up after what you would consider too long of a wait?

On May 19th 2005

my husband tore apart our kitchen, then decided fixing the outside of the house to be more important.

He didn't do that either.

I prayed for patience with his skills

for his stubborn pride

and for

Strength not to hurt him.

I am sure he prayed for me to stop whining

May 19th 2008

the phone rings a message left

"Hi Steve it's me the kitchen just wanted to wish you a Happy 3rd Anniversary"

(My daughter has the best humour)

Steve did not agree

June 2008

It Hit me

and hit me hard

I have


cupboard doors


I have food

My impatience and whining for 3 years completely


I started to Praise God for what I did have

a well intentioned man

who does all the grocery shopping


fills my doorless cupboards

with food

Yes my kitchen is ugly


torn apart

but I am content

and now am blessed

My husband is taking me kitchen renovation shopping


Out with the old and in with the new

Praise God, for His timing is always perfect

I know what I have learned during this past 4 years

and that is much more valuable than

any old kitchen or new for that matter

Looking forward to sharing the finished product with you
