The surfboards are gone.
Well, they are at least on the floor in bits and pieces rather than hanging proudly as a border.
Today I chose completion over a nap, perhaps because I was embarassed when Leah came over and saw the mess, or perhaps I was challenged by what Beth Moore said last night: "Finish the work, and finish it well." While this is not the tabernacle in the wilderness, I do want this room to be a sanctuary for Emma--a place where she can find rest and come to know the love of her Savior as her mommy and daddy try to flesh it out daily. Before we moved, I purchased some of that vinyl lettering that you stick to the wall in the words of Psalm 139:14 ("I praise You, because I am wonderfully and fearfully made...") with plans to put it in the baby room. Now I'm not sure. I think I may want to put it on one of Emma's big girl room walls... As she grows from toddler to little girl to young lady, I want her to constantly be reminded that God put thought and effort into her creation, and that she is a work of art!
So, sans surfboards, it is time to choose paint and make that room beautiful for my beautiful little girl! She says she wants it to be purple... I think Clark is less intimidated by lavender than pink, so we will see...
