An Invitation on an Armoire: An Angel Message

Angels led the way as we found ourselves near a local second-hand shop, somehow we'd driven by the place where we were originally heading. 

This one-of-a-kind hand painted armoire grabbed my attention in a big way.  The painting beckons the eye to easily leave the world behind and enter the world of creative imagination. 

I played the soon to be my birthday card as my husband wondered where we'd find room for it...

I loved the symbolism.  The duality of black and white diamond tiles that lead to a closed door at the end of the hallway.  The glow of an overhead lantern (marked with an X, symbol of Christ)  light our footsteps.  

The building number 25 on the side reminded me of Christ's birthday. A cohesive thought suddenly brought the message to me.  A familiar scripture verse came to mind:  "I stand at the door and knock, if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him, and he with me."  (Rev.3:20)

The journey is an inner one.  If we open the door to our heart and invite Him in to our life it makes all the difference.  The armoire found a home in our kitchen, a perfect place of sustenance.  

Love and joyful blessings,
