Have any of you read the book by Chuck Swindoll "Living Above the Level Of Mediocrity"? You should get a copy of it and read about living your life to the fullest! Jesus wants to give us an abundant life, to live each moment to the fullest! Well, I take that even into decorating my home. I know not everyone loves to decorate, just like I am not into arts & crafts:), BUT whatever you do, do it as unto the Lord with all your heart!
That said, here are a few items I found this week that I will be keeping for now because they are just that, not ordinary* I challenge you to do the same.*)
Look at this face! Is this not the face of a mother, lol!
And this Retro King Thermos with Peacocks!
We will be drinking Hot Cocoa in Style this Winter!
This cute blouse, look at the flowers!
Then this not so ordinary toilet paper holder
Mavis needed bedding so I found this adorable quilt
colors are so vibrant!
And here is something I have had but thought you might
like to see and do for yourself...
Vintage costume jewelry in a vintage glass & iron serving dish?
"I encourage you: make the pursuit of your life to love, honor, and glorify your Savior in all you do and in all you are. Surrender your rights, goals, dreams, even your life itself to the One who died for you, and trust that He will guide you in His highest will for your life. Pursue Him first and foremost, seeking "first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness." Your Father will grant all you need to give God your utmost for His highest. Live with passion for God's glory, not for your purpose."
This book was given to each one in our church by a woman passionate about serving her Lord, "The Return" by Matthew Casey. I will be sharing bits and pieces from time to time, such truth should be shared!
Do you ever get ahead of the Lord? I did this week! I became impatient about needing more bookcases before we start back to school.... so Tuesday I called Julie about lunch time and said, "Hey, you want to go to Ikea today?" and she said, "today? Yes". So off we went with baby Asher all the way to Frisco 2 1/2 hours away. We bought 3 book cases and some misc. and head home. As soon as we get out on the main road I notice the clouds up ahead! Black storm clouds and here we had 3 bookcases in the back of the truck!!!! We prayed and called home to get the guys to pray for us because I am not a seasoned driver in Dallas and certainly not in a thunderstorm :). I had to buy a tarp and tie it over the bookcases. It rained so hard most of the way home and we had to stop several times for me to fix the tarp!!!! It took us a good 3 1/2 hours to get home. One of the bookcases that I bought had water damage by the time we made it back to the house:(. But I told her the most important thing is that we were safely back home. Anyway, long story short, look what the Lord had me find this weekend.......... these white shelves that are for sale because you know I have the Ikea ones already .... and no these are not the ones from Ikea that have the water damage, I'm keeping them:p
And these beauties! Which I will be keeping because they
match my dining room furniture perfect!! Isn't God wonderful!!
