Work Day at Leahaven (Thursday, Mar. 10)
Meanwhile, I headed inside to clean. A good thing! The mice seemed to think Leahaven is a refuge for rodents! I sent Herb out for some poison while I got busy cleaning. When I finished, it was time to hang some artwork that had been in our old house. Since we sold the house, the artwork was freed up from its job "staging" the house. We both though these prints that Kara gave Herb for his classroom at CCS would be perfect. The one on the left is a gently-colored Nativity; the one on the right, a stark Crucifixion showing Jesus' scourged back. I think that too often we Protestants avoid any artwork that represents Jesus, and at the same time we miss poignant reminders of important theological truths. Jesus was born for us; Jesus died for us. Let us never forget!
There's always a reminder of the beauty of God's creation at Leahaven. His mercies are new every day; great is His faithfulness!
