October Blessings

Martin Missions hosted a pumpkin painting "Family Pumpkin Picnic" at Linda Spurlock Park in North Richland Hills. Even though the weather was rainy (Unexpected), we still had fun painting pumpkins, feeding the duckies, and spending time together.

October was a month of some expected and some unexpected blessings for Matt and I. We were prepared to leave for Matt's sister's wedding the first week of October when the Monday before we left we got an unexpected call from our renters back in Texas at 5am that our house (which we just finished remodeling in March) was flooded. The renters woke up to several inches of water under their feet because of a busted line under the sink in the kitchen. We left right away as we made phone calls to clean up the mess the water had created. We are blessed to have insurance! For the rest of the month we scheduled help to RE remodel our home. It was sad to see all the hard work ruined, but we were able to make the house even nicer for our renters and it also raised our resale value. The house got new paint, carpet, base boards, all new tile flooring (that looks like wood) in the living areas, kitchen cabinets, countertops, backsplash, and lighting.
