a quest for life

There is life there. I know it is somewhere. Looking, looking way down deep. Trying to pull it up from the depths. Trying to keep graspe of it. Then the light shines through. Bright beautiful life. The warmth of the light brings safety and strength. And it comes up willingly. Able to reach the top without effort.

Lord, shine your light on the dark places. Bring Your light where there is only darkness in my heart, so that life may spring forth effortlessly. Bring Your new life.

the piece

Your home should be a haven. Mine doesn't always feel that way right now. It is small and we are crampt in it. There are many projects that need to be addressed and updates and upkeeps that need decided upon. But this amoire is one piece in my home that when I look at I feel a sense of calmness come over me. I love this piece. The first time I saw it - it was love at first sight - and the price was reasonable. It is a large piece, but I have never regretted buying it. Right now it houses all our shoes. A beautiful place that has kept the shoes we walk the day in, and night. And as we keep walking throughout our lives.
