 Psalm 139
"O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.  You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.  You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways."

"If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast."


"You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." 

I love to create paper collages.  Usually they begin with faith.  I love this Psalm...I am comforted to know that I am "known".  If only all young women could keep this reassurance close to heart.

Quickie Bathroom Update

I have been quite remiss in posting my projects the last couple of months- I have been SO busy DOING them!  I always overload my to-do list around the holidays and it takes me awhile to recover.  For example, ten days before Christmas, when college students come home for the holidays, I decided to paint their bathroom and give it a fresh face.  It cost less than $150, mostly paint.  It was a deep satin red...
 I primed and painted two coats of color plus the ceiling.  I am loving the "robin's egg" blue and white decor with a running bird theme.  The picture is a paper collage with a sparrow in a snow storm..."His Hand is on the Sparrow."  We also got one of those nifty curved shower rods and a snap over the rod curtain.
I finally downloaded my camera and have lots more photos of projects to share.  Hope you all are safe and warm in this cold, snowy winter.
