Its a rainy Friday morning...



Woke this morning to the delightful sound of rain! I've been up since 4:15 this morning and on my third cup of coffee! I brewed some coffee this morning and lit a candle and grabbed a throw and decided to call hubby who was on his way to work....getting a little better each day, at least he is sleeping more now...Praise the Lord!

Yesterday I met with my sister and her friend at her office (she is a chiropractor) and had bible study and prayer! Such a wonderful time for all of us to come together and seek the Lord and pray for our families and those we know who have specific needs....a very fruitful time!

I posting some photos of the latest attempt to create a cozy niche in my laundry area. Why should this area be neglected even though it is in the garage? So I decided to do a little sprucing up out there too! Used what I had already...an old drawer that I added some vintage glass pulls as "feet", draped an antique doily over the side and added my extra laundry supplies. Found the plate hanging on the wall at Target, last year on clearance for 4.00, and the ladder and old washboards for found at various yard sales and antique shops over the years. They were already hanging there, and adding these other items just pulled it together a little more. Eventually I will paint, I've been saying this for a few years now...it will happen, at some point! I used an vintage 40's tablecloth found at a yard sale for a steal at $.50...on top of the dryer and my grandmother's runner across the shelf. The chair i grabbed up at a yard sale also for 3.00! It just goes to show that we do not have to spend lots of money to freshen a new space! I use what I have alot of the time and move pieces around, and put others away. Decorating for the seasons is what I do...keeps the home looking fresh and updated!

Today's tasks are : cleaning the bedroom windows and blinds

going through my drawers and purging

laundry

purging the kids bathroom cabinets

making some chili and cornbread for dinner

The sun is rising on the horizon as I look out my back window towards the east...right now the rain has stopped. The promise of a fruitful day lies ahead for me...I embrace the day and blessings that it will bring! Have a fruitful day filled with the abundance of the Lord!

"You will go out in joy and be lead forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands." Isaiah 55:12

I really enjoy your blog and your sharing of the Word.
I have been contemplating what I could do with my laundry room/pantry too!

It really is peaceful popping in on you. I awoke early this morning as well, however it wasn't because I needed to, I suppose I was just awake. I often use that time to lift the needs of friends before the Lord and often am amazed later to find a need was there.
Your laundry room display is perfect. I love the vintage pieces of linen going to good use. I recently gave one of my daughter-in-laws a tea towel that my mom had embroidered and I felt so pleased when I saw it hanging over her stove handle at her house. So many blessings. Glad to hear that you husband is recovereing. Thanks for popping in on me.
