In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

Instead of painting a red wall we purchased a red distressed cabinet. Most of the living room tables are distressed that way when the grandkids come over it doesn't matter if they get a little ruff. We do try to keep their manners in check but once in awhile the have to run a car or toy across the table and we don't have to be so stressed about it.

It really looks good and all the stuff is hidden inside

I like your new cabinet Alice, and I know what you mean about the grandkids "distressing" the furniture. Makes it all the more special, doesn't it?

That's beautiful! I've been meaning to say, the side bar photo of your family is lovely, the arrangement is very pleasing and how you're dressed to bring focus to the faces is wonderful.

Yeah, we got the coffee table that our kids 'distressed ' for my parents. I like the red cabinet too. I also like red walls. I really like your header picture. It really shows what the kids are all about. Just being kids!
