Sunday Verses

devotional about God's never ending favor and joy
Happy Sunday! In this current season I feel like I know a lot of folks who are going through some rough stuff. I am talking the really hard, life altering situations. And in these tough times, there is sadness and anger and fear. But, there is also hope. My prayer is that people know that hard things do not last a lifetime. Sadness and disappointment are a moment in the whole scheme of things. Peace and happiness will return and when we rest in God's never ending favor, we will KNOW, even when we don't feel it, that joy WILL return, and that it is worth waiting for. Knowing this truth, helps us to keep on keeping on!

Thrift Store End Table Makeover

I shared a few years ago that I definitely enjoy building furniture rather than just painting it to resell.

But, sometimes things are a no-brainer, like buying this little icebox reproduction nightstand for a few dollars from the thrift store.  I knew it would be a quick makeover with a little paint.

Sunday Verses

devotional about faith
Happy Sunday! Yesterday, our smoky skies cleared for a time, it rained a bit, and we were happy to see our beloved mountains. More than a million acres have burned in Montana in the past six weeks, and on most days we have not been able to see the mountains that surround us. But, even on the days we haven't seen the mountains, we KNEW they were still there. Faith is the same--it is the thing that assures us that God is working in the background even when we don't see it. When we are praying and waiting on Jesus to answer, we have hope that He will act. Faith enables us to trust in KNOWING that God "has got this" whatever this may be. Faith helps us to keep going even when we don't see the whole picture or know the entire plan. This week, let's practice resting in faith.
