My circumstances can color my view of the Father; if I let them. What I do have and what I don't have can determine my sight. If I allow it. Or I can choose to believe otherwise. He is good. He is faithful. He is healer. He is Almighty. That is what He calls Himself. It comes down to my choice. Do I allow my life circumstances to dictate my reality of Him? No, I refuse to let these small moments strip me of my Father. He stays the same. I am the one changing. Continually trying to look past what appears truth in this world, to the eternal reality of Him. The truth that never fails. I see unclearly, while He can see the finished result. Whatever happens in my life, I won't treat it as fuel to think less of my Father, but rather cling to Him and the many good names that belong to Him.

A table painted in two tones of grey. There is a drawer in front as well. It is finished with a wax.
The sweet small hutch was painted with milk paint. A green and white color. I sanded it and waxed it for a nice finish All of the knobs are original.

"The soul is dyed with the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the full light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you choose, what you think and what you do is who you become."

A very old cabinet painted in white with accents of yellow. I thought the small legs added something different to the piece. The inside was painted yellow as well with the shelves in white. A unique and sweet cabinet.

"Love does not stop nicely to calculate the less or more; love does not stop to work out how little it can respectably give. With a kind of divine extravagance, love gives everything it has and never counts the cost. Calculation is never any part of love."

This cabinet was originally one you would hang from the wall. It sat for awhile waiting for me to decide what to do with it. I thought about adding legs and here she is now. I think it is a quaint piece. I painted it black; the legs are painted duck egg blue as well as the inside. The knobs are more like hooks but I wanted something different so I went with it:) The doors are old wood so it gives it a bit of an imperfect/rough look which I like.
The plant stand is small and very sweet with it's chippy white paint.
There are little flecks of green on it as well.

"We are not always sure where the horizon is. We would not know "which end is up" were it not for the shimmering pathway of light falling on the white sea. The One who laid earth's foundations and settled its dimensions knows where the lines are drawn. He gives all the light we need for trust and obedience."

I have finally made my own sign. My dear friend Janelle designed it for me; I think she did a wonderful job. Can't wait to hang it up:)
This wall hanging was painted in provence and school bus yellow. I distressed and finished it with a wax. These two unique hooks I found were added for some charm.
This one is pained in just school bus yellow. I also painted the middle with chalkboard paint so whatever you would like can be written. Two old hooks were added as well at the bottom.
