A Thing of Beauty

 

Got an old chair? Don’t throw it!

If you believe in second chances, Doreen does too! I’ve witnessed some of the most unthinkable brilliant transformations of ordinary forsaken household items through her work! Not only does she possess the special gift of recreating furniture, she can clearly create! For Doreen, watercolor and acrylic paints are not the only options for a blank canvas, try fabric! Dressers needs to get dressed? She can give it a fresh coat of paint transforming even the smaller details like the knobs (or pulls) if you prefer that. Need some scripture in your home on something stronger than paper? Get the word on wood! Shabby chic and vintage are her two favorite styles but she will do whichever style you wish and turn it into a thing of beauty!

Growth Groups (Now Hope Groups)

There’s a famous saying we use often at HopeNYC!

“The day you stop learning is the day you stop growing.” 

As I mentioned in my recent post The Body,  Growth Groups has started! There are many cool growth groups here ranging from from Chinese cooking to bowling,  cosmetology, hairstyling,  leadership, baking, music, bible groups & much much more! 

Many of these groups were held today in different parts of the church building. I was excited to enter church on a bright Saturday morning. I loved the mood of the place. People interacting, drinking coffee, laying out their pens with lovely stationary items ready for note taking. I walked into my growth group today & saw a table of goodies. Hot chocolate, bagels, a variety of donuts, blueberry muffins, yummy pastries, and different cream cheese spreads. I was in a bible class and it was so much fun. There were pictures, prizes, amazing history, laughs, and very interesting discussions. The food could not satisfy my hunger for more wisdom from this teaching. I am already excited for next Saturday’s class. As it ended, I left my seat and wandered around. Through a big clear window on the same floor, I glanced over at the cosmetology class. I saw two girls each wearing a fresh moist green mask over their faces. It looked like so much fun & the girls got a free facial. I walked past another room and heard all the voices behind the door singing as a choir while a guitar strummed the chords of their song. (It was not a music class, it was actually a group called True Worship)  On the way out, I saw my friend on his laptop finalizing material to teach his class. Next to him sat a large bag filled with stacked boxes of Popeye’s fried chicken for the group’s lunch (They’re so lucky) I caught a bus then rode the train home. For the next two hours of traveling (Yes I travel that far) I kept my head buried into a novel I had gotten from my group. Not only I had received an excitement to learn but an excitement to grow.
