Those corners

homework/art center
the arts & homework center in my new-to-me hutch

I've conquered more corners than I could have imagined and it's only Wednesday. That's awesome. And really is kind of a miracle. 


I started leading a small group at church (formerly known to many as Sunday School) for 3-5 year olds and they sing a song to the verse Phillipians 4:6-7...  

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (repeat like a dozen times)

I can not get it out of my head. 

And I don't want to.

(repeat like a thousand times.)

  4. What a cute hutch! I wish I had room in my home for a hutch. We have odd walls and fire place placement... no room.

    I love that verse!

  5. How could I not simply adore this post? I somehow heard of your blog a couple years ago, but I just *discovered* it yesterday. I just transplanted from Indiana to Texas in May...it's always good to hear from a fellow Hoosier. ;)

    Have a fantastically blessed and peaceful day!

  6. Yay for conquering corners!

    I led the 'children's worship center' at our last church -- even though I never thought I really qualified as a 'sunday school mom' like you wrote about previously. But there was nothing like breaking the message down for little kids for me to actually finally *get it* myself. You know?

    happy wednesday. xo

  7. Hey, Stephanie. . .so glad your New Year is starting out well for you. 2011 is going to be a great year! I have a question for you: I love how you collect and re-use jars. . .do you have any tricks for getting the labels off? I recycle jars alot because I can't seem to get the labels off cleanly and I would love to use them more like you have here. TIA! Molly

  8. Those are my absolute favorite verses in the Bible. Our pastor prayed those over us when we were in the midst of infertility so many years ago. Love it!

    Side note: I'm totally going to start saving my spaghetti sauce and pickle jars so I can so fashoinable display things. Great idea!

  11. Molly, I do love jars!! :) I find that just washing them in hot water usually works and I scrub off in the water. Or occasionally I'll get out the windex and scrape off that way.

    [And if it still doesn't work, I sometimes like the "distressed" look with a bit of label still on OR will cover it up with a ribbon! :) ]

  17. Favorite verse! I'm so glad those lucky little kiddos get to learn it early in life and cling to it. I memorized it during some stressful days in college and I think I have to remind myself of it every single day.

  18. love how beautifully you always state your thoughts. that verse is a treasure to keep focused on. and your new hutch with the jars, just beautiful & peaceful looking!

  19. That has been my "life verse". Funny how it applies to both children AND adults. I think God gives us extra "motivation" to conquer those corners and closets the first few weeks of January every year. ;)

  23. I've been doing major corner and wall and room cleaning, too. So much, in fact, that my entire house is a disaster as a result. But the end is near! I can see the light and it will be grand once everything has a place and we have less things to maintain. Purging and sorting galore!

  24. I love this scripture. My translation reads slightly different but of course has the same understanding. I love reading verse from different Bibles. Sometimes it can even clarify a thought. Thanks for sharing.

  25. I've been working on organizing our playroom-I have decided I must send the boys away in order to make any progress though! :) I love the photo of your grandma's button collection; it is so cool.

  26. love the use of the jars to organize everything. it looks great! and i have that same verse posted right above our kitchen sink. it always helps me get things in perspective when i get all worked up, worried or stressed about something.

  27. That is my such a wonderful verse. Definitely one to repeat often. My other fave? Philippians 4:8 - the very next one.

  30. I'm memorizing that verse right now - so fitting for our season in life.

    (I wish I knew a melody to go with it).

    (I really need it to be stuck in my head).
