Heroes of the faith

Hero - distinguished for exceptional courage, fortitude, or bold enterprise; idealized or held in esteem for superior qualities or deeds of any kind.

Every year our church holds a Global Impact Conference. It is a very special time where we celebrate those who make many sacrifices in order that people all over the world might come to know Christ. It is always such an exciting time to hear how God is working all over the world...a time to celebrate our heroes...a time to reconnect with old friends...a time to reflect on how God would use each of us in reaching a lost world for Him!

Feeling Blue

I have wanted a blue bedroom and bath for a very long time. Over the past year or so, I having been piecing my bedroom together. First , I found some blue and white window treatments, then a comforter, next some plates to hang over the bed. Little by little, I am getting there. Recently, my DH and I began painting. We started in the bathroom and still need to get another coat on the walls before moving to the bedroom.

I am wanting to paint the ceiling in my bedroom, too. Anyone out there know whether I should use the same color as on the walls or do I need a different shade?

Letters from the heart

Last year, for Valentine's Day, I sprayed a metal mailbox hot pink and stuffed it with goodies for my DD.
It has a special place on her bedroom wall, but I haven't been as diligent as I had planned about keeping the lines of communication open with letters. This Valentine's Day, I'm going to make sure it is full of heart notes and that it stays that way during her teen years! :)

One thing leads to another

This is what I've been doing................rearranging!

I tried hard to rearrange so I wouldn't have to change the grouping on that red wall. That paint is not very forgiving and if you look closely, you can see that I'll be doing a little patching and painting to fix that place where the sofa left it's mark. I now also have to get those dents out of the carpet where my furniture has been sitting for YEARS.

I had to rearrange my great room furniture so my dining area could accommodate this baker's rack.

That's because I had to make room in my guest bedroom for a couple of pieces that are now in my master bedroom. Remember that armoire? Yep, it's still in my garage and before we can move it in, my DH says other things have to move out.

One thing I know for sure...I'm going to be rearranging for a while!
