Work  is a blessing[YES! A BLESSING!]

God has so arranged the world
that work is necessary
and He gives us hands and strength to do it. 
The enjoyment of leisure would be nothing if we had 
only leisure. It is the joy of work well done 
that enables us to enjoy rest, just as it is the 
experiences of hunger and thirst that make food and 
drink such pleasures. - 

Discipline: The Glad Surrender
Elisabeth Elliot 

I loved the work of the past few weeks...the progress...the creativity...the pulling it all together.
and now  am loving  rest....

I will share photos of the sale for WW

I LOVE your new sign! It is YOU! :)

I also love to camp out on Elisabeth Elliot. Such a Godly woman!! Work is a blessing! However, it is all in the delicate balance. Enjoy your time of rest! You have earned it. :)

Hi Rene
It looked amazing and I am so glad it all paid off for you.
Love the bed, I would turn it into a French Settee.
Have a restful week
