These stairs 🖤
I read the best quote the other day over on the @wellwateredwomen feed - something that made me hang my head in shame and that hasn’t left me all week: “If I can in any way slight another in conversation, or even in thought, then I know nothing of Calvary love.” That slapped me right in the face because I haven’t just fallen short in this, I’ve failed miserably 🤦🏼♀️. How heavy that makes my heart, I can’t even tell you. I know we are called to be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry; but honestly, I’m often quick to speak (way too quick) and quick to become angry 🤦🏼♀️. It’s something I’ve been working really hard to change. Disciplining my mind and tongue to be obedient to Christ and the love he calls us to demonstrate is extremely hard. The flesh in me wants to justify my slights and sarcasm toward others - I want to say it is deserved even because of something that offended me - but all it really comes down to is an unchecked heart. For so long I left my heart unguarded and unchecked and that produced a lot of thoughts and words towards others that were not nice or loving. I allowed myself to feel justified for speaking poorly of someone just because I felt wronged in some way. I cut others down in the confidences of my friends because I was irritated by someone’s words or actions towards me 🤦🏼♀️ ... all while truly believing in my heart that I was genuinely different from most gossipy women and someone who didn’t talk ill of others 😳. I shake my head at the many many times I have failed in loving others as Christ has called us to - especially in these last few years. At the end of the day, there is really nothing I can do about my past failings except lay them at the feet of the cross, and I can actively and willfully change how I speak and think of others in the future. Loving on people that aren’t just in my circle is something I’m really striving towards this year, and I’m hoping by the grace of God I can make this a permanent change in my life.
TIME AT THE BAR
New jerry can mini bar! I've been wanting to make another mini bar for aaaagggges and was lucky enough to be asked to make one for a customer who saw the original last year. Great fun to build and the possibilities for customisation are endless.
Who would you give one to

Dans la série des encombrants je demande le père...
Voici une beauté qui nous suis depuis une dizaine d'années...
Mr l'a trouvé en pleine nuit devant des bureaux parisiens qui fermaient et en 2-2 l'a adopté et ramené à la maison.
Après l'avoir remis à nu il a retrouvé sa fraîcheur indus qu'on aime tant... Et mieux encore il s'est patiné avec le temps.
Pis ce genre de meuble c'est le bonheur, on y range sa maison entière
