Well, I've never owned a gate before.  We've never needed to use that cool feature in our truck and SUV that you can put your remote into with your sunglasses. It looks like I'll need to get savvy with my ability to click a button to open the gate at my new home.

I'm imagining a HUGE wreath or lighted garland here for Christmas.  I'll have to make a BIG bow and put an uplight to shine on it.

Ya'll...please don't feel that I'm bragging.  I'm anything but!!

The Lord brought this scripture to mind the moment I was inside that gate with my Hubby and long-time friend who is a real estate agent..AND, you better believe I broke out in spontaneous song and quoted it outloud with them on-looking in astonishment of what a goof ball I am.

Psalm 100:4
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with Praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.

You'd have to know too that scripture has been in my living room near a painting of a garden gate/door.  I typed it out on pretty paper and printed it off my computer and LOVE that scripture so much.  So, the second I put my feet on the ground the Lord intended for me...WOW!!  I could almost feel the electricity. This will be the new to us "basketball court" that my boys and their friends play on too.

Maybe I'll finally really do it up big for Christmas this year.  I certainly already have in my possession all that I need to pull it off.  Hubby has already announced that we'll have his entire branch over for a party.  I'll keep ya'll posted every step of the way.

  4. Beautiful gate!!! A great big wreath or two would looke great. I sure hope you do it up big with lights and everything and show us pictures. HUGS and congratulations on your home!

  5. That is a dramatic gate and congratulations on your new home. A giant red bow or wreath will look pretty on the gate.
    I see my Christmas blog on your blog roll, thank you. The blog is based on the book I wrote about celebrating Christmas, with 5 other gals. "Scrapbook of Christmas Firsts". Nice to meet you.
