Putting Down Roots in West End Part II, Blessing the Studio


It is almost a new year. I can't help but look back on 2014 and reflect on all the changes. My biggest and brightest moment was my move to West End. I feel so at home in my new design studio…it just fits me.

The best way I celebrated this move to West End was with a blessing. I asked Pastor Pugh, the associate pastor of my church (Augsburg Lutheran Church), to come and bless the building. We gathered together with friends and prayed. It was a beautiful experience - my eyes filled with tears of happiness and my heart was so full.

Pastor Pugh mailed the blessing to me and it is framed in my studio. I love to read it and remember all the love and support that surrounds me.

My favorite piece of scripture Pastor Pugh referred to was from Isaiah 40:

"The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever"

Many blessings to all in 2015.
