A Day of Prayer

My little nephew Timothy was born with holes in his little heart. 
Currently he is in the hospital to gain strength and will be there
until God heals him or until a surgery can be performed..
We are planning a day of prayer on Monday, October 3.
I have broken the day into 1/2 hour increments,
but the prayer can be anytime 1-30 minutes within that frame.
The prayer chart is here.
**I fixed the chart on Friday 9:00 pm so that you can sign up without permission.**

We are praying for a miracle,
for Timothy to gain strength,
for strength for his parents,
for the children still at home,
for safety traveling between home and the hospital,
for those caring for the children at home,
for wisdom for the caregivers and doctors,
for wisdom in making decisions,
for grace and peace during difficult days.

When the chart is full, then we will send it to my brother and sister-in-law.
I know that it will be an encouragement for them.

For any family who sees this, feel free to send the link to other family members.

If you know my brother and want to share in the day as well - 
feel free to join as well.

Thank you in advance.

**Thank you to the Facebook Contingency who quite obviously spread the word.**

Workshop Closed

I have missed a few more weeks.
As I mentioned, we were revamping schedules, priorities, etc.
and the school year changes my piano lesson schedules - 
so with all of the adjustments, something had to give.

We have not been sitting idle though.

We have completed two more pieces of furniture.

The first was a replacement for a rolling heater that sat beside hubby's chair (his office).
He built a higher cart.
It has a drawer in the back where he can tuck his computer if it might be in harms way
 (i.e. I am cooking in the kitchen or we are having company)
and there is room underneath for the blanket for those chilly mornings of study.
It has already proven to be more conducive for study.

The second is a coffee table.
We have never had a coffee table and never imagined we would,
but since we were building it, it could be small and serve two purposes.

It is a coffee table and foot rest for the love seat,
and it can also be easily moved to be a bench if we need extra seating.
If we ever move, it could sit at the end of a bed or it could be a window seat.
