But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Matthew 6:6 KJV
This weekend I painted our son's old bedroom an inspiring, warm guacamole green. My husband calls it the new avocado green. The room that has been our son's for the last several years has become "my" room. I have always wanted a room to gather my creative outlets and have them at hand. So here I am at my cool, borrowed drafting table. I was thinking that would be a good kind of desk for me as a writer and creative person. I was at my friend's a couple weeks ago lending her our table saw, and we talked about Les making me a table for the room, and I also mentioned my desire for a drafting table. And there was hers- unused and stored in her garage. She gladly offered to let me use it! Amazing friend and touching provision from our Creative Father.
So here I sit blogging in this new space. Potential galore. And seeing that I really cannot keep things to myself, I will share this room with guests, as it also has our convertible futon couch in here. I can't wait to start gathering my supplies and tools in here.
Today as I was dreaming about different purposes for this room, I remembered that I have always wanted two things: a prayer closet and a walk-in closet. I envisioned myself praying in this new space which is like a walk-in prayer closet combined. I'm loving God and His creative providence in my home and in my heart. Hallelujah!
