Tucked Away Haven

Master2

Mark 6:31 And he said to  them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and  rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure  even to eat. 

There is a place that exists where being my true self is not a struggle.  Where a heart is free to dream, find peace and feel it’s most comfortable.  A tucked away place that  surrounds  like a warm blanket.  My bedroom is the first place I go when I come in the door, the last place I leave from in the morning.  It’s my most favorite place to be much like God’s presence.   It’s the place where frustrations melt away, and the hope of another day begins. A place to steal away, where beauty is captured and safety is felt.  Rest for our weary souls and refreshment to our spirits.

Let me inspire you to “Arise” and create a beautiful bedroom retreat where you can forget the worries of the day and be at peace. Here are some pointers to create a cozy restful place:

*Good MattressIMG_0645

*300+ count sheets; Don’t have to spend a lot; look for these on the sales racks at Ross, Marshalls and TJ Maxx!

*Duvet Cover with down comforter or any comfy quilt or comforter; love “Tuesday Morning” for this!

*Lots of different pillows for sleeping, some firm and some soft (down)… I like to lay my head on a firm pillow to support my neck and hug a down pillow

Sitting Room*Decorative throws and accent pillows

*Reading Chair

*Lovely curtains which accent your bedding

*Paint the room your favorite color keeping the shade peaceful and warm

*Interesting Lamps (don’t have to match!)

*2 side tables place on either side of the bed (don’t have to match!)Master4

*Comfy throw rugs placed right next to the bed (your feet will thank you in the morning!)

*Favorite books, magazines, bible, silks, art work

*Your favorite fragrance
