I always thought nesting was for mothers. The anticipation of someone who is yours to care for, provide for & protect must be a thrilling emotion. So of course, a mother would prepare her nest for this special little one. She would be diligent in making this nest comfortable, cautious in making it safe & passionate about making it beautiful. That’s what love does to you when you’re a woman. It makes you want to be EXACTLY what God called you to be … a HOME-maker.
I won’t be able to have children. My body is weak, bones are broken & there’s no space in my compact torso to carry another … But does that mean I can’t “nest” … Over the years I’ve learned the answer is, heck no! I absolutely can nest & build a beautiful home for both myself & the special one I waited for, for so long. And when I stop to soak in all the real blessings in this life, I am in awe of all He has given.
One special thing He has given is our nest. Our home. A place to shelter our love & grow our marriage.
And I 💗L O V E💗 making this house a beautiful home. Getting on Pinterest is one of my go-to past-times, I am obsessed with watching other people’s creativity & dreaming up my own little #DIY projects. I also enjoy researching “home blogs.” Hearing the sweet stories of how people are building their home, with the ones they love … That’s just, everything. Home is the place where you plant your feet at the end of the day. It’s the place where you cry a thousand tears, & laugh a million giggles. It’s where you can play, be silly & not worry about what others are thinking. It’s the place you pray, eat, sleep, dream & love. I love home. And I love making our home beautiful.
My Memaw is an interior-decorator & has been for years. I’ve watched her adorn houses with drapes, tables, carpets, lamps & more. I loved looking at each fabric she had lying in the front living room & imagining what the finished product might look like. I just never knew that same vision … Passon … was inside of me, until I finally landed in my own nest.
So, because I love this & because many believe I too am “good at it” – I’m going to start sharing this little passion of mine, with you. It’s for fun, really. And it keeps my spirits high as I continue to fight for joy, in this season of pain.
AND I get to design another wedding! My little sister is getting married! So I may share some of that, too.
So, here’s to #nesting … A beautiful process for all of us. 💕🏡
