I am grateful for the simple. I am grateful for the simple, yet beautiful. Maybe not simple to create - because while I have a certain level of creativity, things like making bouquets just do not come easily to me. But, a simple bouquet of flowers brings a lovely hominess to our living room and I love them. Now that the big ticket items are in our living room (ie. couch, chair, ottoman, rug, curtains) I am concentrating on the finishing touches in the room, and because as a family we spend so much time in this room. Lately, it's where we mostly eat, even, because our dining room chairs hurt my body, excruciatingly; and, dining room chairs have to be saved for. And, we gather here to fellowship with others, still opening our home to our small group.. Thus, it is about sharing touches of who we are and what we are becoming - beautiful. When we purchased our forever furniture (as I like to call our burnished saddle leather couch, big chair and ottoman), I knew the entire living room would need a makeover and it is coming along - swimmingly!
