Thank you, Brett, for meeting me there with your trailer to help me dig it out and bring it home! 🙂

new desk 0002_resizenew desk 0001_resize  I took out all the drawers, washed the desk off (it was a little warped from all the rain,) and found a gallon of paint in my closet that I had used for trim earlier this summer.

Then I painted it white!

Here is my new desk! 

Trish, I placed it right below the wall hanging you brought me when Nick was so sick.

It says, “Happy moments, praise God, difficult moments, seek God, quiet moments, worship God, painful moments, trust God, EVERY MOMENT, THANK GOD.”

I love these words!!!!!!!!!!  Thank you, Trish! 🙂

I moved a few baskets around from different rooms and bought a $6 lamp at Family Dollar……… new desk 0009_resizenew desk 0006_resize

Now I have a little place to write while in the same room as the kids!!!

I just love it!

Here’s what it looks like at night!new desk 0010_resize

I’m just thinking that if an old throw-away desk can be transformed into something so useful that surely GOD can do something AMAZING with each of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love you all,
