Another Pretty Room

This room says....calmness, serenity,quiet, still...... a really beautiful place. It is beautiful and it's one of those pictures that look like the furniture has been acquired over several years, here and there. I like this kind of room found in the March issue of House Beautiful (my favorite).  Just sit down, have a cup of tea, read a book, think, dream, read my Bible and pray............just wait for directions!  I especially like the window treatments!  Natural colors are appealing this time of year!

  Most homes are lived in with toys on the floor, here and there, a book on the table with a book mark in it, a piece of thread on the carpet waiting for someone to see it and pick it up.  You know, the houses that say real people live here!  "Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it;  Unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for He gives to His beloved even in His sleep!"  Psalm 127:1-2  Oh yes, He does!!!  It's a promise!  Our homes can and with grace and humbleness are able to honor God!  We can enjoy pretty pictures without expecting perfection in ourselves or others.  We'll  be a lot happier and have a whole lot more fun in life........
