Back in October, John & I were at Hobby Lobby browsing around. He found these 3 very bright flower plaques. I guess you would call them plaques; they are like heavy wood. Anyway, he said, "what do you think about these going in the powder room". I told him I thought it was a great idea...it would brighten up the bathroom. John painted that bathroom black (including the ceiling) but left the crown molding white 6 years ago. We have black and white photos in there. Here is a plaque we bought at Mardel about 3 years ago to go above the toilet.
See, it's pretty but we needed something to kinda cheer the room up. This is after all the bathroom all the guest use.
So that's why we bought the plaques. The plaques that went from the kitchen table to be hung in October. To the dining room table in November. He went to hang them in December but said he would have to do some touch up painting first...so they went back on the table. I finally put them in our room on the floor by my jewelry box. They sat there for awhile. Got tired of picking them up to vacuum....so I put them under the wardrobe in our room. Well, here it is February and I moved them again yesterday to vacuum. That was IT!!!
I don't ever hang anything in the house because John is very meticulous about hanging pictures. He gets the level, measuring tape, pencil etc... out and it's all perfect. Me I usually just eyeball it and slap it on there. But, I am so tired of these plaques not being on the wall they were intended to be on.
So I got out the measuring tape, level and pencil and I was precise!! I hung those plaques myself!!
I think they cheer up this bathroom. My favorite is the purple one.
Honey~ you probably forgot that these were even in the house. They look good, huh?!
On to the BBS. It's the 15th of the month so that means time to pick a new scripture. I have only gotten the 1st one fully memorized. But, I'm not giving up on the others.
James 1:20 (NIV)
"for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires".
When our egos are bruised or hurt we tend to turn towards anger. When you feel as if your not being heard or that your opinion doesn't count we turn to anger. It's OK to be angry at times as long as you don't let it get the best of you. Selfish anger never helps anybody.
This has been a verse I have thought about a lot, lately. I was very angry about my job situation. So I decided I needed to memorize this verse and if/when I am ever in a situation that makes me angry I can just repeat this verse.
