As you may recall, my studio had some water damage from before we moved in. This led to the tearing down of the beautiful ceiling. I salvaged all of that wood and began making signs out of it to pay for restoration. A few of those signs ended up in the hands of my beautiful friend Camille after a tragic event in her family. God used that ceiling to bring us together. We became friends because she ordered some things from me on the internet. She is now one of my dearest friends.
As we had duct work ran out to this room, we had to get a ceiling up before we could run it. Denbigh and Camille's husband have become really good friends as well. When we needed to get a ceiling up ASAP, Denbigh called John and asked for help since he is a custom home builder. Of course, I am thankful for John's extreme generosity. Today I was struck by something else. God brought our families together by ripping down this ceiling. Tuesday, it came full circle as John came over and helped put a new ceiling up. I had this realization today. God can do whatever he wants by whatever means He wants to. God is a God of redemption. He even redeems ceilings.
I tried to get a good picture of the whole room, but it is really impossible to do. It runs the whole length of the back of our house. It is 360 square foot and has 12 glorious windows. We will put the bead board up and strip the wood walls in there. I cannot even tell you what a glorious thing it is to paint in this room. Thank you for everyone who donated to us. That ceiling alone costed over $600. *I have a feeling that this room will house many youth to sleep over for mission trips.

Here is the best pic I could get of the ceiling. It shows about 2/3 of it. It is a big room. It is also heated and cooled. That seems pretty crazy to me. I have never been able to work out here in the winter. The guys at Southern Comfort did an amazing job. They will be back sometime after the first of the year to run ducts under our house to heat and cool the first floor.
If you are going to buy a pie for Thanksgiving, think of us. We will be delivering to Waco, Kyle, & New Braunfels. We use that money to feed our guests here at Gomer for the year. Thanks so much.
Love y'all. Be blessed in the Lord.
Give to Gomer's House.
