I HAVE LIGHT!!! The Lord is good, my husband was handy. Instead of the horrible track lighting that was there, he bought a huge shop light and will add two more in a few weeks. We bought the day time bulbs so it doesn't distort my colors in my work and presto, I have light!
We also put together the tables in our living room. This is one of the few lights that works in the house, but I think you can see what we have done so far. (Thank you my dear friend for sending the tables!)

"We cannot make something where nothing existed - whether it be a poem, a house, or a painting - without breathing life into it so that it may itself breathe." Elizabeth O'Conner

I read this and realized how profound it is in every moment of our lives. We seem to get in a plateau in life that we just function with out thinking. I know you do that when you drive and I imagine you do it in all areas of your life. Function with out thinking or breathing life into what you are doing at that moment. Just being conscious of the creativity, the making or the work you are doing will breathe life into it. God has created us in His image to be givers, givers of life you might say. In every thing we do we glorify His name and we breathe "life" into our giving.

As you go through your day today, stop at various times and let that moment seep into your consciousness. Then regear and breathe life into what you are doing being acutely aware of every facet of it and how it will affect others around you. Your "breath" gives life to the world around you.

Think of the Lord on the cross and his last words as his last breath gave life to all of us.


"Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last." Luke 23:46
