"May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight oh Lord, my rock and my Redeemer. " Psalm 19:14

Lately I've been thinking often about some relationship issues I have.  I am shocked by the nearly continual stream of ugly thoughts that I find in my head.  I am countering the thoughts by repeating this verse to myself.  I am slightly encouraged by something a pastor once said: you can't stop a bird from landing on your head, but you can prevent it from making a nest in your hair.  The thoughts come without any effort but getting rid of them is taking considerable effort!  I am thankful for God's Word, which is always available to help me.

And now, a picture of progress in my craft room:

Changes are coming

This is a room in the process of becoming my craft room.  It was painted 4 colors, all of them horrid, and had ugly carpeting.  Last week I painted every inch - wall, ceiling, trim and built in shelves - just plain white.  Today the carpet was taken up and tomorrow laminate floors will go down.  Then a whole host of things will be installed and finally I will have a wonderful craft room.  I am so excited!  I'll have to try to remember to post pictures as things progress.
