A Sweet Surprise

A while back my Mom called and and said that she had entered a give-away and won and that she wanted to know which saying I wanted.

Wow! She wanted to get this for me so I could put something special in the new place that we have just moved into. I saw the saying

"Christ is the Center of Our home
A Guest at Every Meal
A Silent Listener To

Every Conversation."

I loved it and knew exactly where to put it.

I have my dining room set up

with The L.A. Temple photo,

Chip's Mission Plaque,

the print of the painting of

Jesus Christ

smiling by Del Parson,

and the Garden of Gethsemane

print and our 4 bookshelves

overflowing with our library of books.....

and lots of other special items.

The dining room is the "center" of our home.

I received the gift very soon after

and I was trilled with it,

I called my Mom as I was opening

the package and was so surprised with all of them.

I had to find the right item to stick it to.

I would have put it on the wall, but we have some painting to do and I wanted to be able to take it with me when the time comes to move and they bulldoze the house. So I found a piece of wood at Hobby Lobby yesterday and got it painted with the help of Jane. Then today after my long glorious nap

(about 6 hours long)

I stuck it on there.

Super easy and beautiful.

It will be a great reminder to me about how I should work to make my home a

Holy Place

and every conversation respectful.

Within the package of goodies there were some other stickers that I am waiting to find the perfect place for. I know some of the CTR stickers will be for Jane's room

(which will also get some paint on the walls).

"No more toilet at the table!" Remember how mad Dad was as the conversation turned to goats, horses, or cattle---or all of the above breeding? And...as soon as he realized what he said, how super-red he became. Like me, when I said to you after eating dinner, "Bree take everything off and shake it on the porch." THE TABLECLOTH BREE! I meant the tablecloth! You just stood there bustin' up with the rest of the silly clan. I better order that saying and the sooner the better j/k Mom
