Is there a certain place in your home that is a place of quiet rest?
Mine is my bedroom and in the last several months I've felt the need for a refuge from the storms of life. You know just those general storms with occasional thunder and lightning thrown in.
For a long time, I've dreamed of having a chair in my bedroom to sit and read, pray, watch movies or just plain be. I finally got it! I'm a reader and the chair is right by the windows so I get really good light which
in my later years I seem to need! The best part is it is so comfortable and it's so pretty.
The table was Russell's grandfather's desk and is the perfect place for my books and anything else I throw there.
When the last of our children moved out,
we I decided it was time for a new bedroom with a king size bed. The dogs needed more room.
After a test run with some furniture we just couldn't live with, we settled on this.......and by the way, we'll be moving that little picture and getting to the walls later!
This is Russell's dresser. Oddly enough, he needs more drawer space than I do, but I have the bigger closet. Wasn't he a smart man to build two big closets in our bedroom? He built the house before I even knew him, for a single father with two boys who said he had no intention of marrying again.
Until he met me that is I had to do a few girly alterations when I came on scene!
The bed is huge! Remember this is the first time we've had a king size bed. The dogs don't have to shove us over now.
Oh, yes, and the night stands and we even got new lamps.
This is not the media stand we will end up with......it goes with the
crappy other furniture and ours isn't in yet and you know we have to have t.v.
Here is my place of refuge, where is yours!? I really, really want to know!
