Freshen Up Friday

I showed you my entryway on Wednesday's Peek from my Porch, but at night, it takes on a whole new look.

Here's what it looks like in the daytime...


But look at it at night...

I added a battery operated twig of bendable lights inside my lantern so I can have a soft light on when my guests come in.  It adds so much to the porch when it's dark outside!

Inside the house you'll see just inside the door is a nightlight.  It's an adorable little tea cup light, 
but it's not just pretty; it provides light in the that long hallway when it's dark AND
it adds a touch of warmth when you enter.



What kind of lights do you have outside?  Freshen up your entryway by adding some battery operated ones.  Gracious Designs has a battery operated candle that looks like a real flame.  You can even put it on a timer!  There are tons of these battery operated branches at places like Big lots, Michael's and TJ Maxx.  Why not add some sparkle and ambiance to your front door this fall?  It will welcome your family and friends with a touch that says, "We were expecting you!  Reminds me of that motel ad - "We'll leave the light on for you!"  It's welcoming and inviting to see a light at the door.  Pull yours out, or be on the lookout for one this weekend and come up with a clever way to add it to your decor.

Pastor's Encouragement:  Pray that your pastor will focus on the Word of God and walk in the fear of the Lord, rather than the far of man as he prepares his messages.  Pray that he will seek to please God rather than men, and pursue holiness rather than the praise of men.

Husband Encouragement:  Is your spouse a man of integrity? Is he fair in his dealings with people? Does he understand the meaning of justice? Is he honest in business? Genuine in his faith? Consider all the ways a man can live in integrity, and praise your husband for one of them.

See you in church!

Be refreshed,
