Hebrews 11:1 or The Evidence of things Unseen

Sometimes when all hope seems lost it is best to pretend that all hope is not lost. This is something else I know. Faith is a principle of action, a principle of power. That means that if you act like something is so then it can become so. 

Let me show you an example.

Let's say you've been sleeping on an air mattress waiting for the delivery of a bed for three and a half months. (Hypothetically.)
 Let's just say that you don't believe you will EVER sleep on a normal mattress again.  Let's also say that you really, really, really hope that one day you will. What can you do in this situation? Do you have any control at all? Well, you musn't forget that faith is a principle of action. 
So you should do something.

Like deflate the air mattress and put up the bed frame and the headboard you have painstakingly restored.
And just look what happens when you take a little leap of faith.
Forty pounds of handstitched natural cotton take their rightful place.
If you build it the aireloom will come.
And that, dear friends, is the substance of things hoped for.

*Please try using this principle in other scenarios. It really works.*


  1. holy crap. I just breathed a HUGE sigh of relief for you. this makes me happy. I was scared you stopped blogging cause your air mattress ate you. Glad you're ok.

  2. Yay! It's gorgeous. love the bedding and the headboard, too.

  3. ooooo ahhhhh she's a beaut! The headboard looks reeeeally good. I love it black, it really makes the shape come to life. perf man.

  4. How's the sleeping been? It's a beaut!!!

  5. Hurrah! Love the bedding, too...

  6. The headboard looks like it turned out nice, at the very least the overall look is lovely.

    That mattress sounds divine though. I would imagine the quality of your sleep has increased greatly.

  7. You are right about acting like something is so, so that it can become so. But it's hard to truly believe in it and keep that faith going. I so want to take a nap on that bed and I'm going to apply the principle to this lofty little goal. It looks straight out of a Restoration Hardware store all made up like that.

  8. Looks so comfy and also beautiful all made up. WOW! Your really had to earn this one, huh?
