New Study Nearly Completed

Brian is enjoying his first week of on-line classes through Liberty University. He should have his Masters of theology finished in a year. He built 4 pieces to hold books/notebooks/paperwork. Three are bookshelves and one is a larger piece built around two oak filing cabinets. He needed one large piece where the copier can sit so he built a kind of cabinet. We bought one large piece that was probably a buffet in a dining room originally but it will contain lots of books. It is probably between 40 and 50 years old, not actually an antique, but we liked it and it fit the room. This room has served several purposes in the nearly 30 years we've lived here. First, we had lots of plants in it because ti is on the south side of the house. We've always had several tables and chairs and used it for serving meals when we had family parties, but much of the time,t he door was closed and we seldom came out here. We moved my computer out here and will enjoy being together. I'm sewing and embroidering and have a book teaching how to paint roses. I hope to have a little time most days for these hobbies. You may click HERE to see a slide show of the room in an album. Have a wonderful day and think about how much God loves you. I love you too.

What a lovely room -- so open and airy and bright. I love the idea of living in a home for so many years that rooms attain new personalities and purposes with the passing of time. (Spoken by one who moved 18 times before marriage at age 22. Only lived in 5 places since then -- 9 years here, 9 at the previous locale . . . so I feel blessed and contented AND SETTLED IN FOR THE LONG HAUL, Lord willing).
