Gold Painted Chair

There has to be a way to DIY this chair.

The Color Of Our Silk

Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."
John 3:3

"Doctrines held as a matter of creed are like bread in the hand, which ministers no nourishment to the frame; but doctrine accepted by the heart, is as food digested, which, by assimilation, sustains and builds up the body. In us truth must be a living force, an active energy, an indwelling reality, a part of the woof and warp of our being... It is said that the food of certain worms colours the cocoons of silk which they spin: and just so the nutriment upon which a man's inward nature lives gives a tinge to every word and deed proceeding from him."
-Charles Spurgeon

I'm Back

Sorry guys, I got knocked out of sorts after a week and a half of traveling in which I was sick six of those days.

Just wanted to say welcome to the Christmas Season. Come on in, the egg nog's just fine.

Here is some festive art I drew up on my welcome board to get you in the spirit.

Let's Get Personal: Again

You who have made me see many troubles and calamities will revive me again; from the depths of the earth you will bring me up again.
Psalm 71:20

Again. Again is the stressed word and concept in this verse. Why? For the author, David, had seen evidence of God's saving hand before, which also means that David had seen times of trouble before that would warrant a saving hand. He even goes as far to say that God had made him see those times of hardship. But without those times of hardship, how could David have seen the faithfulness of God's deliverance? How could he develop a trust in the character of God? A trust that is vital when the darkest of dark hours hit.

Nevertheless, the point of this verse is again and the subjects it addresses:revive and bring up. 

I too have seen God's faithfulness in reviving and bringing up. Once and for all through Jesus Christ, but also in times of uncertainty, pain and calamity. Why should I not expect to be revived again?

God, give me the lungs to sing songs of praise, for hope is not fleeting when it is in you. And even though I wait for your hand to bring me up, I rejoice in the truth you bring to this word: again.

Sunday In The City: The Waidely's Visit

Sunday was great end to a great weekend spent with Josh's mom and dad.

Here they are, John and Faye. We had an outstanding breakfast at Mission Beach Cafe. Hey that kinda rhymed.

Josh was a little irritable since he waited till 10am to have coffee. 

Mission Beach has the best pancakes in the entire world! And I am not exaggerating. They cover them in this amazing bourbon syrup that is to die for.

Josh's meal was by far the prettiest.

Then we made a trip out to the flea market to give them a little taste of our typical Sunday in city.


Welcome to the Land of Misfit Toys...

It's Morhpin' Time!

Almost bought this beautiful piece of art.

Since it was the first weekend of rain in the city, and just in case we get lost at night and needed to navigate by the stars, we decided this awesome umbrella was a must.

My best Blue Steel...

I decided Josh needed some practice with the camera. This is what he came up with. Not bad if I do say so myself.

Since we got out of church late and it was a very cold night we decided soup and grilled cheese was in order.

This grilled cheese was elevated to a whole other level with the inclusion of Tartine bread.

This soup was elevated to a whole other level with the fact that I didn't have to clean another bowl.

Good night Josh and we miss you John and Faye. Till next Sunday then!

Look At Miss Ohio

I really don't like country at all, but I am loving this song. Probably because it's Gillian Welch cover.
