Have you ever started one change and it led to another, then another and another?
I did that yesterday.
One little change led to this…
Not done yet!
I love that MM loves this piece and it is beautiful,
And our “L” shape stairwell won’t allow us to move either piece upstairs.
Honestly, the mess is still there. I got so overwhelmed by it I just walked out and pretended I was Scarlett O’Hara. “I’ll think about that tomorrow.”
Well guess what? It’s tomorrow and I have to think about it.
I want a small dresser or something to go in this corner.
I want something like this.
I don’t have a piece of furniture like that, so…
In other words, till I find just the right piece at the right price.
The monstrosity is going to stay where it is for now. It will just have to wait for another day.
The hutch will be cleaned out and after Christmas it and the dining room table will be refinished somehow. Just not sure how yet. Do I paint them, or strip and restain them?What do you think?
I have noticed a snowball effect from God as well. He has pointed out one sin in my heart and that has led to another, and another and another.
I could absolutely dread this and I do, but I also find it wonderful. Why? Because He is showing me where I need to change to be more like His Son. As My devotional said this morning, “God has pulled away the fog and given us a clear glimpse into the battlefield.” (Journey November 2014). I can see the mess that need to be cleaned and Jesus wants to help me clean it. The old is being cleaned out and the new is being put out for all to see! That brings glory to our Father!
Well, today is yesterday’s tomorrow and I do need to finish what I started!
Until next time, Jayne
