I love my kitchen! It's a bit on the small side, but for a small kitchen I have a lot of cupboard space. I love that it's got red touches to it. I'm pretty sure John loves that good meals get cooked in it. I love that John helps me wash dishes! :)
The challenge for today is a picture taken from a high angle. So here is my kitchen taken with me standing on one of the kitchen counters.
A while back I did a blog asking your opinion on several pictures or posters that I liked as possibilities for my kitchen. The thing is, I wasn't really crazy about any of them. So I ended up using Photoshop to put a verse on one of my own pictures which I then ordered from Snapfish as a really nice canvas print with a frame. It says "Those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25". As part of my ministry, I provide a lot of hospitality. (For example....in one of the pots on the stove I was preparing something for having guests for supper and in the other pot was something for a team coming in early Monday morning.) Most of the time I enjoy it, but sometimes it gets to be a bit much especially since spending time in the kitchen isn't something I do just for the fun of it (even though I DO love my red kitchen!). So this verse, hanging over my stove where I spend a lot of time, reminds me that providing a meal, sharing a good conversation, encouraging somebody who isn't sure what they're doing here are all parts of refreshing others. And as I refresh others, I will myself be refreshed.
