What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

The Bunkin Nook

A few projects, proudly completed, deserve a spot in the limelight.

My brother, the entreprenuer, recently started a new business-one that I covet myself. The making and selling of the newest sensation: wall verses and art. I have long coveted marking my home with all manner of verse-but the prices are out of my league. When visiting them recently, he not only shared with me the process of it all-but gave me the end result! When he asked what I might like to have written, I knew in an instant. I was planning on PAINTING this over the cradle--but how much neater, easier and more professional looking it looks with the vinyl stickers. Not to mention, they can peel right off (as if I would ever want to do that!).

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made...

A constant, cherished, ever present reminder of the gift of LIFE.

(PS. For anyone interested in learning more about this, or the opportunity to purchase some wall art: he will take custom orders. My email is sgrbear724@yahoo.com and if you email me, I will forward your message to him.)

The cradle, just tiptoes away from slumbering parents.

The changing table, teeny diapers piled tidy and high, wipes warming thanks to a new church sister, and surrounded by the powderfresh softness of talcum and snowballs of cotton.

A sheet, embroidered with love for HER babies by my mother, now used to tenderly swaddle my own. Fresh bedding and quilt, washed and reunited with cradle, my first ever sewing projects.

A love token from Corynn, wood carved heart, treasure excitedly discovered in chicken house and placed on Bunkin's windowsill "so Bunkin will know we love her OR him."
