Love Expressed

God has surrounded me with amazing friends. Some of those friends are artists in the true sense of the word. Recently I was able to visit one friend's "craft room". I guess if it were mine, I would call it "Sanctuary"...or, maybe, "Refuge". Honestly, it brought tears to my eyes. It is a beautiful space. (I asked to return just to take pictures for this blog. I had to share this room with others!)
I wondered why I was so overwhelmed (in a good way) by this room.

Is it because I long for a place to get away to be creative, rather than lugging stuff to the dining room table? Is it because Tammi has decorated it so beautifully? Is it because I feel like a kid in a candy store, or more like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory?

I was so overwhelmed by this room because this is where my dear friend pours out her heart, her love for others.
You see, she is one of the most generous, loving people I know. This is the room where she creates to make others happy. This is the place where she expresses her passion, this is the place where she gives of herself...and it shows. I can feel it. That is why this is a sanctuary or a refuge for me.

I can feel the life and love here. Thank you Friend!

Even I could get creative in this room! Wow! This must have been heaven!
