Welcome to my house!


Many of you have asked for pictures from Paraguay.


This is the largest, nicest kitchen I have ever had! Nice wood cabinets and even granite counter tops. The stove is small, which is typical for South America. The entire house has hard wood floors due to the fact that the owner owns land and harvests his own wood.


This is the dinning room side of the kitchen with the double doors which lead out to the back yard.




I thought it would be fun to compare this house to
The Jungle Hut in the early years!





Igualito,no?

Philippians 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

Right now, I am most certainly ABOUNDING..and enjoying it!

Lovely home. I'm a bit envious of your kitchen and the space in it.

Your New House looks like a palace compared to the one in Venezuela.

By the way, how did that baby soup taste that you were making in that one picture from Venezuela.

Susan said...

Rita, it's beautiful! I am so glad God has blessed you with such a spacious, beautiful home.

Sarah Halter said...

Wowee, what a kitchen!! By the way, is that ONE pot that takes up the whole stove in the jungle kitchen?

Enjoy this season of abundance. Well done, good and faithful servant.

Good morning, Rita! What a beautiful house! You most certainly deserve it...I'm so glad you're being blessed, and I pray that G-d will continue to give you the desires of your heart! Have a wonderful day!

Liz said...

Rita, me muero de la envidia!!!
:D

You're right about stoves, why is that? one of the things I did when remodeling the kitchen was buying a large one. I wasn't even able to bake a large pizza in the old one!!!

Your place looks warm, love the wood work. ENJOY!

FJ said...

C'mon. Admit it. I'll bet you kinda miss the hut...

Webutante said...

I couldn't be happier for you and your wonderful family....lovely digs that you are and will surely enjoy!

I just got home to mine and wow does it feel good to get back to my nest!

Thursday's Child said...

Mabrook on finding the schwarma! They might be Lebanese. But it's pretty common to call a restaurant Lebanese to get more customers. There used to be this one schwarma place in Kuwait that had Lebanese flags on it but the owner was Syrian. LOL But Lebanese food has the reputation so they take advantage. Let me know how it is.

Rebecca said...

Those floors are gorgeous! What a nice place! Praise the Lord!

Nicholas Z. Cardot said...

That looks great. I'm glad that you have been able to upgrade a little bit over the years! I'm so happy for you!

Sarah Halter said...

Ha! I didn't even see the baby sitting in the pot! I thought the baby was on a ledge.

Deanna said...

Mountain Mama said...

Your new home is just lovely. No one deserves it more than you. The compairson pictures are amazing. Congratulations Rita, your home looks like it came from a Home Beautiful magazine. I just LOVE all that gorgeous wood!

Pam said...

L.O.V.E. all that wood!!! and granite! Very nice. And that china cabinet, is that a built in or can it be moved as a piece of furniture? A very LARGE piece of furniture!

Jungle Mom said...

Pam, it is three parts and is stand alone.
