Hello my Lovelies,
Today I'm winging my way to Roswell, Georgia to meet up with some awesome ladies
for the Roswell UMC Women's Conference.
If you're planning to attend, know how excited I am to meet each of you.
I can hardly contain my excitement for what the Lord
will do in each of our hearts and lives.

"The hard discipline to give thanks for all things at all times because He is all good. The hard discipline to number the griefs as grace because as the surgeon would cut open my son's finger to heal him, so God chooses to cut into my ungrateful heart to make me whole."
This is just one of the many passages from our study this week
that brought each of us to a stand still.
What about you friend, do you struggle with the hard discipline
of seeing EVERYTHING God brings into your life
as a good thing?

Happiest Tuesday my lovelies,
Finally, I'm so excited to introduce you to
my sweetest friend Gwen.
She's a master at hiding from having her picture taken.
I snapped this one while we were working yesterday.
Check out Doris, Lynette and Henri.
These ladies are just precious!
I recently ran across this devotional from Rick Warren

Happy Thursday my lovelies,
Here is the latest edition of
Styling with Gwen (who won't let anyone take her picture)
at our Habitat ReStore.
Once again our little team had a blast
putting these rooms together.
This is the AFTER of the Reading Room.
Here is the mauve bookcase from the front room.
It was moved into the Blue Room
We styled it with white dishes
made a mini desk with the pull down.
This is the BEFORE of the Left side of the Blue Room
(This room won't be dark blue much longer)
This is the AFTER of the same space
This is the BEFORE of the Right Side of the Blue Room
This is the AFTER of the same space.
That's it for styling in February.
Stay tuned for newly painted rooms.
Now, my lovelies what do you already have in your possession
you can use to bless someone else?
I can't wait to hear from you.

Happy Valentines Day
Romans 5:8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Job 34:19 who shows no partiality to princes, nor regards the rich more than the poor,
for they are all the work of his hands?
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD,
plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Psalm 36:5 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.
your faithfulness to the skies.
Psalm 48:9 “Within your temple, O God,
we meditate on your unfailing love.”
Jeremiah 31:3 “The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying:
I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with loving-kindness.”

Happy Monday my lovelies,
Here are the before and after pictures of
my latest finds
Happy early Valentines Day presents
Leopard chairs in the den with
a wobbly round table in between them.
We inherited this table a few years ago.
It's great, but needs a bit of TLC.
Here's the same scene with one of
my weekend purchases.
It's an old piece painted black with gold highlights.
This chest is perfect to offer a bit of storage.
Here is the set of nesting table
my mom graciously gave me a few years ago.
I think they are at least 25 years old.
I have them to one side of the white love seat
in my living room.
This room is such a work in progress, as there
really isn't much in this room.
This is the new set of nesting tables
I found this weekend.
Can you believe they are an identical set?
You can see both sets of tables.
Now I just need to figure out what else
I can do to complete this badly neglected room.
Happy early Valentine's Day to me!!

"Restlessness and impatience change nothing except our peace and joy.
Peace does not dwell in outward things,
but in the heart prepared to wait
trustfully and quietly on Him
who has all things
safely in His hands."

Ruth 1:16-17, "But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the LORD do so to me and more also if anything but death parts me from you.”"

Happy Sunshine Wednesday
I'm gaining so much insight from reading
The following passages continue to ring in my ears
and resonate in my heart.
"Satan's sin becomes the first sin of all humanity: the sin of ingratitude.
Adam and Eve are, simply, painfully, ungrateful for what God gave."
"Our fall was, and has been, and always will be, that we aren't satisfied
in God and what he gives. We hunger for
something more, something other."
Are you reading this book?
Did the same passages impact your heart?
I hope you will share your lovely thoughts.
