my seminary desk!

This was a gift from my grandparents. We found it at a local thrift store, and I love the fact that it has a history...that it was used and appreciated for years before it got to me.

It inspires me to study, reflect, and write sermons!

That's a GREAT desk!

Oh man...I'm still desk hunting. Turns out that desks are very allusive prey. Finding the perfect one seems almost next to impossible.

Your desk-find gives me hope.

I'm glad you like it, Amanda!

I wish you well on your desk-hunt. Until I found this one, I had a hard time as well.

I'll keep an eye out for you...

(And if worse comes to worse, you can always use mine until you find one.)

I did not find a desk today.

I may be too picky.

...maybe I will build my own.

Perhaps I have a secret talent for carpentry....

I FINALLY found a desk!

I can pick it up the day you move in, Erin. (Wednesday, right?)

It's purty. I'm having it painted a dark chocolate brown.

When I see you I will have to tell you the epic-esque story of my desk-find.

(It comes with a chair!)

Erin, you must post an entry about your new apartment and how the move went! I want to know all about it, and take some pictures too.

I'll be able to get some stuff into our room (I still think of it as yours though) tomorrow- yay!

This is no joke: I had that exact desk (though not chair) growing up! From grade school until my parents bought me a larger, metal desk with file drawers in high school, that very model of desk was mine. When I got the new, metal desk, my brother inherited the old for a while. Eventually, I think my parents sold the set or gave it away, once I left home.

I always loved that desk for its solidity. Hardwood, as I recall, with a kind of slate inset desktop. I did not especially care for the rippling in the slate, but I did love that desk because it was my first as a child.

Erin, I hope that it serves you well at Calvin. I am sorry that I did not get to see you again this summer, but next time you are home, let's get together with James and Laurie.

May the peace of Christ be always with you!

That's crazy! The fact that you had a desk just like mine makes me appreciate it even more! I like knowing that a lot.

And it is a good, sturdy desk. And it's the first one that's my own. (Besides Trinity's dorm desks, I've never had a desk before!)

I would love to get together sometime when I'm visiting home. That sounds very good.

Thank you for your message and blessing, Steve. I wish you the best as you begin this semester.

May our Savior's peace be with you, as well.

Matt, I appreciate that a lot. If I end up needing anything, I will be sure to let you know.

And if you're ever up in GR, you're always welcome to visit. We have a pretty sweet apartment and, surprisingly, we're all pretty good cooks!
