I imagine that last week you must have wondered why I took you on my revamp journey about the art center....Well, as you can see above, it is all done...3 big cabinets did the trick--hooray! (By the way, this big cabinet is in an alcove that is not visible to people walking into the house. It's in an area in my family room that is not accessible to visitors.)
But, there is a bigger reason and "method to my madness." You see, when you looked at the first picture of the mess last week, you could certainly tell that this was a daunting task to clean up...Not something with a simple solution or "quick fix." Sometimes life's problems are like that, but when something gets cleared up, we feel so much better! Problems don't feel great when we are going through them, that's for sure.
However, do you know what made me feel like I could get it all done? Because I had each one of you cheering me on and giving me confidence....I kept thinking of "The Little Engine That Could." So, you see, it is also important to turn to those we need in life when things aren't going the way we planned...someone to say a prayer for us or someone who believes in us and our capabilities...and it is important to pray. God makes all things possible. So, we need to learn to turn to Him even for the tiniest things.
If you are ever encountering a problem, just remember my art mess! And remember that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel!
