Product Review: Samsung Dishwasher (DW80F600UTB)

We recently purchased a Samsung Dishwasher from Lowe's. It's features range from the stainless steel tub, to it's hard food disposer, it has an adjustable top rack. It comes dressed in all black, and while in operating mode it comes in under 50 decibel at 48. It is quieter then our last Whirlpool which was only 2 plus years old. We appreciate it's Sanitation cycle, which eliminates essentially any need to dry any of the dishes as they come out. (I can't say the same for the Whirlpool that is going to the scrap  yard in a few weeks.) I also enjoy using the delay wash cycle, for when showers are being taken directly after dinner. The dishes are clean by morning....

The price was under $500 at $472.81 which actually was more then $100 dollars less then the piece of scrap we replaced). We did not purchase their suggested install kit, but did need an elbow to fit our supply line to the dishwasher. I'm not sure why that connection is not a standard between manufacturers???? The installation was easy, with the help of a second person.

Model Number: DW80F600UTB
Price: $472.81 (Lowe's were running an appliance sale, they usually run $649)

I would recommend this product to family and friends.

A Church Adventure: Reflecting

A Church Adventure.

What do those three words, in that sequence, bring to your mind?

This question has been coming to mind lately as I reflect on this adventure we have been experiencing. If you have not read this Adventure, feel free to click the links at the bottom of this post.

My last post titled "Found it", stated that we found our new church home recently. After that post, I thought about closing this "A Church Adventure" chapter of my blog. After all we weren't going to be visiting anymore church's, we were home...end of chapter, or is it???

I recently have been kind of lazy regarding this blog of mine. Recent posts are mostly quickly shared music videos, pictures of my life happenings, or blasts from the past with frequent throw back Thursday. There is also my Project 365, yes it's supposed to be one photo post per day. Clearly I also struggle with following through...

Reflecting to the past, as I was composing these posts for the Church Adventure, I really enjoyed the creative process, getting my thoughts together and posting them for who ever might endure my bad grammar and miss spellings. I was so amazed at all of the support we received during this adventure, from emails, to comments on posts and Facebook, and casual conversations with friends. We absolutely felt God's love during the ups and downs of this process. Thanks again to everyone that supported us!

I will continue my therapeutic writing here, about our Church Adventure, and what we are experiencing in our new home church. During one of our recent discussions as a family about our church, we all shared something each one of us has witnessed, situations reflecting that God is at work at New Day!! HE is doing great things, and continues to guide us, as we love Him, love others, and love to serve. It's with considerable clarity that God never intended this Church Adventure to end, so we will continue experiencing it, where we are, thanks to Him!!!

What thoughts come to mind when you hear or read these three words, "A Church Adventure"?

Grace to you and peace from God, during this Christmas Season.
