Further In

Walk through the front entryway and down the hall, and you will pass this display as you approach the downstairs bathroom. You could also choose to turn right into the dining room or left into my bedroom. Either way, do come further in.

Sheep are a theme in my life, both as metaphor and decor. Here we will look at the decorative aspect, as you view these sheep given to me by my sister years ago underneath a rustic picture of a herd draped with fall garland.

The candlesticks were the first real Christmas gift received from one of my children. By real I mean not from the Dollar Store. Priceless. Gems and jewels.

fall hall

A whimsical pumpkin teapot (?) rests in front of a small plaque reminding me that I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath dealt bountifully with me. The word bountifully is what classifies it as fall decor.

That mask? It’s been sitting there for awhile now, a reminder of the work in progress at the top of the stairs.

And, really, isn’t there always a work in progress?

So I leave it there, reminding me of this very thing. That am also a work in progress, and the one who began it will be faithful to complete it.

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
Philippians 1:6
