Quiet Time

For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:5

I know there a lot of people out there who are sick or are taking care of sick loved ones. Sometimes I don't know which one is worse. If you don't mind please say a prayer for my Mom as she continues to care for my Grandmother. It is a very special thing to be able to take care of a dying/sick a parent, but heart breaking and relentlessly tiring at the same time. I know several of you reading this know what that is like.
Also, I would just like to say thank you for all the comments and e-mails to last weeks Quiet
Time. Your comments mean more to me than I could ever express. While praying about
what the Lord is asking from me a song a popped into my head. I thought I would share the

Here I Am Lord

I, the Lord of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save.

I who made the stars and night
I will make the darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them
Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord
Is it I Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go Lord
If you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart.

I the Lord of snow and rain
I have borne my people's pain
I have wept for love of them
They turn away.

I will break their hearts of stone
Fill their hearts with love alone
I will speak my word to them
Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord
Is it I Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go Lord
If you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart.

Where It Started...

Since yesterday I posted photos from the SATC2 set I thought today it would only be fitting to look at Candace Bushnell's house, since without her there would be no Sex and the City....I hope you have a fabulous holiday weekend!!!

I love the brown side and the white side above. Of course who can forget the original closet...
and the bedroom from the first Sex and the City movie..

Hanging With Ralph

Wouldn't it be nice to live in Mr. Lauren's world?Surrounded by beautiful fabrics...
I love the bottom of this bench-
Sipping champagne on my striped sofa...
Don't get me started on my love for pinstripe upholstery....and then there is the pillow on top of that...sigh.
See this could be me right?
Love everything about this chair but did you see the books in the background?

Afternoon Snack

There are a lot of elements I like in this room but the curtains described as "wool paisley" really peak my interest. I would love to see them up close.

Quiet Time

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

I have to be honest, my relationship with the Lord has not been what it should be the last several weeks. It is really bothering me that God has not been a priority in my life. Whenever I am feeling down, knowing God is there and is all that matters in the end is what lifts me back up. However, we are not promised that we will be with God in the end. Just being a good person and showing up to church every week is not the way. We are called to do more and so far I have not done more. I am perfectly content just being and that is scaring me. Does anyone else feel the same way?

Remember this light...It is now up in its new home in a Nashville nursery. I was having serious camera issues that day, I promise more complete pictures later....
I have to say that is not the only lighting in the house I LOVE.....this is in den right when you walk in...
Needless to say I enjoyed helping with this house.
