Thank God for NEW CARPET!!!

My Thankful Thursday is all about the NEW CARPET that the Lord blessed us with for our bedroom. The Lord was so good to allow us to purchase beautiful $500.00 carpet for only $80.00!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, you heard right - and no, it's not some crazy color. It's a neutral that goes perfectly in our room! And it feels awesome squished between your toes. ;-)
We had searched and searched for the right carpet at the right price and to no avail. Because we waited on Him, he allowed us to find this amazing deal!
Our good friend (and the best carpet installer in the world), came out last weekend to install this luscious carpet for us, and we are enjoying it immensely!! Our old carpet was an ugly blue color that was all kinds of flat, drab, stained, etc. After pulling up the drab blue carpet, it gave way to this dated orange stuff that someone had GLUED to the beautiful hardwood floors. *cry* Why are people so dumb? :-P This is the "before picture" - here you see the old stuff rolled up, and the retro orange carpet underneath. Groovy, huh? I recently redecorated our room. We painted the walls a lovely, sophisticated gray with crisp white trim, bought luxurious new bedding (saved a lot on Ebay), installed a gorgeous new light fixture, hung the perfect curtains, and put the finishing touches on the room with artwork and decor. The LAST step to transforming our bedroom was the carpet......FINALLY our room is complete! Here's the "after picture" (half of the room anyway) and you can see how much of a difference it truly makes!
Thank you Lord for caring about even the little things, like my fabulous new carpet.
