How about a bowl for lunch? Its been that busy around here thanks to my idea of repainting our bedroom. I chose a nice dark color that matched perfectly a floral fabric window treatment (to be), that our dear decorator friend matched for us. But I didn't use a primer to cover the strong blue that was already on the walls and we got a purply chocolate color instead. Add semi-gloss to the mix and it was doomed to die-(read, be repainted as quickly as possible). So, then came a coat of ceiling white on the ceiling and onto the purply/brown walls. Then a coat of light blue. (By this time all the wind has gone out of my sails and my chin is restly sadly on my chest). Trying to save $$ we only got one gallon of light blue, and did you guess? It is patchy, and needs another coat. This will make the 4th time painting these walls! (Thank you A.!!!! for coming over and spending your day painting & painting some more!) So, its been so busy and tiring here, I WILL be having cereal for lunch, but thats no problem...smile. I 'm just longing for some 'down' time. A good Christmas novel or how about the video.."Little Women". Oh that would be relaxing! I'll get some pictures of the tree eventually to post. Right now, near by is the bedroom dresser and nighttables and you name it, it just might be out in the living room right now, WITH the tree!
This has blessed my heart in my morning prayer and worship. "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out...And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day." St. John 6:37, & 40. Of such am I and my heart is lifted up inside me with joyful thanks. This verse also was my daughter's favorite verse, that comforted her greatly during her teen years. This day she lives, not on earth but with her Saviour, who left heaven to give his life to take the punishment for her sins...and had she been the only sinner here, He would have come for her alone. Oh glory to God and our Saviour Jesus Christ!!! What a blessed gift of supreme love! Salvation!
