Love a good find.


Look at this beautiful chest of drawers that I found (and bought) yesterday in a pawn shop. I paid $50 for it and after Jaku oiled it, it look totally beautiful. It's in my scrapbook room... so I just added some more storage space for my stuff. I love this piece of furniture. Totally love the price too. I will be visiting some more pawn shops to see if I can find some more jewels like this one. I need one or 2 more pieces for my home...

I am also working on a little project. Scrapbooking wise. Love the creative outlet. Will show you when I am done. Jaku is leaving for France this friday to watch some worldcup rugby. And see a little of France and Spain. He will be going with Johann. I am so excited for him. That and also the fact that I have one or two projects in mind for when he is gone. mostly de-cluttering.

a thought for today is... Psalm 119 that I have been contemplating a lot lately. :169-176 Let my cry come right into your presence, God; provide me with the insight that comes only from your Word. Give my request your personal attention, rescue me on the terms of your promise. Let praise cascade off my lips; after all, you've taught me the truth about life! And let your promises ring from my tongue; every order you've given is right. Put your hand out and steady me since I've chosen to live by your counsel. I'm homesick, God, for your salvation; I love it when you show yourself! Invigorate my soul so I can praise you well, use your decrees to put iron in my soul. And should I wander off like a lost sheep—seek me! I'll recognize the sound of your voice.

Talk soon
Love and a kiss
Wilna
