Nearly completed master bedroom. Just needs the drapes hung ... and a few of the brass colored metals refinished with oil rubbed bronze finish.

Your son and all persons in harms way defending their nations intersts no matter how unjust they may seem are in my prayers. I love the Music on your blog it was very inspiring an relaxing at the same time.

This room reminds me of the guest room I stayed in at my host family while I was attending Catholic military boarding school in rural Va. waiting for a vacancy in one of the dorms.

God Bless.

Well now, samseven, if that isn't a generic prayer for unjust national interest, I don't know what to make of your prayer offering. Glad you enjoyed the music.

SamSeven said...

Generic indeed, but not discount lol. Sorry I couldn't help it, but Trust me I had to come upon myself to even go THAT FAR. Like most mothers who have kids in the war, i would think that you would want your kids back by your side. I mean now that it has been absolutely proven that the INVASION was a mistake based on so called faulty intelligence. Why have them put their lives at risk just so America can get cheap oil, its not like we are poor and need the coveted discount. Thou shall not covet thy neighbors [land, wife, property etc] what ever happened to old fashion values.

Well some things are just beyond our control I guess. Just cause I brought attention to the fact that the invasion that we are calling a war is unscrupulous, it doesn't mean the sentiment in my prayers is not genuine.

Now that house, now that is something worth defending, after all it is your home. I guess the Iraqi's are just trying do the same thing. Life's too short and too simple to bend the rules to suit ourselves.
