Autumn break means time to throw ourselves back into the renovations we began during the last ‘holiday’. We’re almost at the painting bit. Each day the space looks a little more like the dream in my heart. I wait for hubby to finish the window and door trims – then I can make myself useful with the putty and paint.
I have been passing the time by restoring the table and chairs we plan to use in the room…
Before: broken, dusty, cobwebs, evidence of creepy crawly inhabitants, dirty, peeling paint, missing polish, tired, sad, run down, needing love.
After: Fresh, bright, cheerful, restored, clean, smooth, useful, beautiful, loved.
It’s the same with us. God has a dream in his heart for us too. But placed in the master’s hands we can become so much more than an old chair with a fresh lick of paint.
Now, your turn…
