Connor sat quietly through most of the service this morning. It was nice sitting next to him while listening to the message on Psalm 128.

1 A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem. How joyful are those who fear the LORD—all who follow his ways!
2 You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. How joyful and prosperous you will be!
3 Your wife will be like a fruitful grapevine, flourishing within your home. Your children will be like vigorous young olive trees as they sit around your table.
4 That is the LORD’s blessing for those who fear him.
5 May the LORD continually bless you from Zion. May you see Jerusalem prosper as long as you live.
6 May you live to enjoy your grandchildren. May Israel have peace!

This afternoon I picked up some gold craft paint to update a basket for the entryway. 20130120-211534.jpg
This is what it looked like with just a rough coat of white. I used a sponge brush to dab the paint all over.
Here’s a progress picture – I only put the gold on the handle and the top rim, as well as the little rope detail.

And now to end the day with an adventure at Downton Abbey.
