#igbc5 coffee table is complete. Thanks to @rogue_engineer for the plans, hope I've done them justice! Thanks to @rusticduckfurniture for her words that helped me confirm my finish choices - find your inspiration, find your excitement and you've found your finish. Mine is my 2 year old daughter who loves to draw so this chalkboard top will suit her so much. Stoked to have finally finished this and pretty happy with how it came out. Great job to all that have completed it so far. So many amazing builds been done by you all! And thanks to @igbuilderschallenge for the work you out into the challenge and for having me! #igbc5final#coffeetable#chalkboard#drawers#family#xlegs#chunky#woodworkersofinstagram#woodworking#finished#completed#challenge#coffee
I am done. I am finished all my college exams (providing I didn’t fail anything 😂) and I am so so so relieved. I cannot believe I have made it this far and I truly feel blessed and protected. My friends and family have been SO supportive, on my good days and especially on my bad days. And honestly even if I did fail something and have to re-write an exam I will still feel blessed that I was even given the opportunity to come to New Brunswick for school to build towards my future and to make a little life for myself.
I read an article a while ago that said Christians say they are “blessed” too often and that we abuse the word. But honestly I disagree. I believe God has a massively orchestrated plan, that He sees all things and knows all things that we do not. We are to praise Him in the good and the bad. And I try to do that by counting all good things (even the most general things, like being alive) as blessings because I know His plan is much greater than I could ever even think it to be. In my life I have rejected and blamed God many times on my bad days and I probably will do so in the future as well because I am human. But even through all that He has kept me alive and well and has placed so many GOOD and WONDERFUL people in my life. I learned something from every relationship I have with anybody and I am so thankful that He is my shepherd. Even when I run away and get lost.
He will always bring me home.
