Home Tour - Master Bed Room

Kelly is hosting another home tour this week and this week is the Mater Bedroom. Our Master Bedroom is a light sage green color, which is perfect, because it is such a peaceful room. We have a large book shelf in our bedroom full of books and bibles. Casually leaning up against the book shelf, next to Andrew's side of the bed is a sword. Yep, a real, sharp and heavy sword. I gave it to him during our wedding cerimony, right after we said our vows.

I gave him that sword on our wedding day, because I wanted him to be prepared for the battles that were to come. I wanted him to know that no matter what, victory or defeat, he had a partner. He had someone who will back him up with prayer, my knees have been sore on his behalf lately. I wanted him to be equipted with the Sword of Truth as the Bible puts it and I wanted him to have a visual reminder of what that meant. I picked the sword from Braveheart, because he loves that movie and it has great battle scenes in it.

We have a vase of our wedding flowers that sit next to our tall dresser on a white pedestal that was also used in our wedding.

Right above the bed is a scripture. Matther 19:6 "So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." With everything happening right now, this scripture is everything to us. We are in this together, we cannot stand alone. Where he goes, I go and when he hurts, I hurt. This scripture is a nice reminder of that.

The quilt on our bed was a gift Andrew's Grandma, Grandma Postma, made for us as a wedding present. My heart is tender for this woman, she has prayed for my man everyday of his life and she has prayed for us everyday of our marriage and now she has added my son to her daily prayers. I praise Jesus for her.

This cross candle holder hangs right next to my side of the bed. I love it and I love the picture of Isaac that is tucked right in.

Between our two windows I have hung a collection of pictures of Isaac. I also added the cute candle holders as an accent. I love candels, can you tell?

Our room is peaceful, decorated with scripture and the best place to end the day. Thanks for stopping by, make sure to leave a comment so I know where to visit. Blessings!
