Steve’s father passed away this week. We are heartbroken and grieving and would appreciate your prayers; especially for his mom, who lost her husband of 57 years and who spent the last few years sacrificing so much to care for him at home. The gift Steve’s father gave me is one I’ll never be able to […]

via Mark D. Sikes I pinned this room over the weekend and can’t stop thinking about it.  It’s so bold and decisive.  The owner of this room doesn’t seem to be plagued by a desire to blend in, to follow the crowd.  This room makes a statement, like it or not.  After this post, I find […]
