To find myself, what I am here for and where I fit into the epic story.

So this weekend, one of my to-do list items and one of my desires was to create a little haven that I can call my own. With Ed's help moving the big chair (that came from his dad's storage unit up north and was a lovely brown and gold 70's print, but oh so comfy) from the basement, my haven was made. With things from around the house like a wing back chair cover that was in our garage sale back in September, to a little table cover that is scrap fabric I found in a bag a friend gave me, to a throw that we received when we moved into this house two years ago, to a lamp that was from Ed's dad's old place, to some dried flowers I received for my birthday from a friend, total spending on my little getaway? $7. Just don't look at the border or the lovely blue blinds. We have yet to paint and redo this room.
My little haven was cristined this morning with 20 minutes of peace, quiet and lots of time to think, read and pray. It was wonderful!
