Why the fascination with a sleigh bed? I honestly don't know. I had never slept in one. I simply loved the way it looked. And after an entire day (yes, at least 8 hours) at the store, we decided on this set.
We have plans of expanding to a queen size mattress. Yes, we are sleeping on a full. And no, it isn't big enough (especially when you add, on occassion, Reagan to the equation).
The walls are a pleasant gray/green - which compliment the cherry furniture nicely. I splurged on the coverlet for the bed and once we buy our bigger mattress, I will be color coordinating with some pillows and new sheets!
Its a pleasant place to rest. The room is filled with special things - our framed wedding invitation, wedding pictures, a handmade (just for me) jewelry box, a vase from China, special tokens scattered about. But perhaps the most significant element hangs above our bed. The certificates of our profession of faith, framed, preserved, remembered.
In a place that we strive to make comfortable, we find the words:
What is your ONLY comfort, in life and in death?
That I am not my own, but belong body and soul, to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ.
