I am painting a brand new world today!!

OKAY, maybe not the WHOLE world. More like just Heather's room. Since she is at camp this week I am redecorating her room! Its her Birthday surprise. She has NO IDEA!! Especially since I went on and on and on about how I was NOT going to allow dragons and ninjas and black and red and blah blah blah in there. Well, being the uber cool mom that I am. I did find her a fabulous bedspread that is nice. It DOES have a dragon on it and it IS red and black but I think I will be able to handle walking past the room without wanting to throw up.

This was the last room renovation that we did for her. It started getting real frustrating when the cats were eating the grass bed skirt. Then when we got Heather a bigger bed the hut had to be altered and well, it just was never the same. So we took it all down. Now the room is kind of just blah. No spunk. No fire. So renovation #2 is on its way!

So we (being Hannah & I) are off to paint the room a nice TOMATO red! Wish us luck! And dont forget BLOG CANDY is ending tomorrow afternoon!

I leave you with this note tho. How often do we wish that we COULD just repaint our whole world? Paint the sky to whatever season we wanted. Bring rain to the grounds that are so dry, and sunshine to those that are so wet. How often do we wish we could take off a few inches from our backside, or maybe make our teeth a little whiter. Maybe its a partner that we wish we could draw to stand beside us...a child an animal or whatever. Remember you DO have the power to paint your world differently. No, you cant change the color of the sky with a simple stroke of paint, but you CAN pray and you can live your life with faith and obedience that God WILL supply your needs. Remember to ask. To seek Him and your every need will be met in a way that not even YOU could have imagined! So go out...paint YOUR world new today!--be blessed! B
