Meet Chip and Joanna Gaines.Two of my favorite people! And I’ve never even met them. 🙂 But I’ve watched three seasons of Fixer Upper, their home renovation television program, so I feel like I know them. 🙂 It’s one of my favorite television shows. ♡
They take the worst house in the best neighborhood and turn it into their client’s dream home. Right before your eyes!
I have to admit. I have rehab envy. My home desparately needs a makeover. I want them to come and redo my home! Except I don’t live in Waco. 😦 So someday I’ll just have to go to Waco myself. To experience their store Magnolia Market at the silos. The rest of their Magnolia interests are a little out of my league. Their vacation rental Magnolia House. And their remodel companies Magnolia Homes and Magnolia Realty. But I find the Gaines family and all their “Magnolia” very endearing.
I’ve been watching their reruns anxiously all year awaiting they’re return! Last night, November 29th, at 8:00 p.m. I sat in front of my TV all by myself and watched the first episode of season four.
The funny thing was I’d just gotten home from being in Oklahoma City for a doctor’s appointment. The television in the waiting room there was on HGTV. The Fixer Upper marathon leading up to their fourth season was playing. Evidently I’m not the only one that finds The Gaines couple endearing.
They’re back! 🙂
What are you anxiously awaiting to return?
I don’t know about you, but I can tell you someone much greater than Chip and Joanna Gaines that I’m anxiously awaiting. Someone much bigger than the state of Texas they come from. It’s Jesus! And He too is returning! He is coming!
His return will not be announced in advance like the Fixer Upper. The date and time is unknown to all except His Father. Even He is unaware of its time and date. You won’t be able to DVR His return and watch it later when it’s more convenient for you like Fixer Upper. The entire world will know when He does finally return. And bow to His presence. And I hope and pray that we are all ready. That we aren’t living our lives like the homes in Fixer Upper, in need of some rehab.
Let’s all put on our spiritual tool belts and do whatever renovating is necessary to be ready. That’s why I like the Gaines family. They appear to be built on a strong foundation. Both on and off the TV. Family and faith are integral parts of what they stand for.
Let’s all stand for Jesus! He’s the foundation each of us should be built upon. He’ll be back! Let’s be ready!
Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. Matthew 24:44
Love and laughter,
