An Updated View.

I mentioned yesterday that my desk also benefited from the bookshelf project ... and, from dear Honoré, a beautiful wooden rendition of my 2017 one little word - Light. Want to see?

This view holds many reminders of what's important in my life - photos of my parents and Katie and her boys, my dad's bible from when he was a teenager (a verse he'd highlighted is marked with a crocheted cross that a friend gave me when he passed), the handmade wooden cross from my church to mark his passing, devotions, "quiet" books (including works by Mary Oliver, E.B. White, Danny Gregory, Anne Lamott and Katrina Kenison), and of course the angels and those two wooden words.

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. and sometimes a single word (or two) can tell a much bigger story.

  1. What a beautiful, calming, lovely view you've created! I want to sit down at your desk and drink it all in, so I'm inspired to create my own space. I only have a tiny desk in the kitchen, but it's time to update my own view. Thank you!

  8. Your desk looks like a lovely, peaceful spot to spend some time! And I enjoyed getting a glimpse of your bookshelves, too! You did a great job with your makeover. You've inspired me to attempt a few makeovers of my own. : )
