house beautiful

I got my first two issues of House Beautiful in the mail yesterday. I'm not sure why they sent me the May and June issues at the same time, but I don't mind. It makes for good train reading.

When I worked at Home Depot answering phones in the phone center, I used to head over to the big magazine rack before my shift and load up on magazines to read while I waited for angry customers to call. House Beautiful was one of my favorites; when I left Home Depot for the Real World (tm), I decided to get a subscription to it as soon as I could afford it. Well, I happened to have a gift certificate to Amazon.com sitting around a while ago -- we have an Amazon.com credit card, and we get gift certificates after we spend a certain amount of money; since we use it for everything (groceries, gas, etc.), we get the gift certificates pretty regularly -- so I decided I would finally go ahead and order it. It was only twelve bucks for a subscription. Pretty reasonable, if you ask me. It's the very first time I've ever ordered my own magazine subscription. I feel so grown up.

Standing there I saw a single note
Shining in mid air
I stepped forward and it engulfed me
And I stood in purest sound
I looked around and saw in it
A reflection of God's love
And I couldn't contain myself-
I sang along
And gloried in the song.

Sound familiar?

I still have it on the wall of my office.

I love your artistry still
