On Being Desirous of Refinement: Both for yourselves and all that ye posess

Ye have been enjoined to renew the furnishings of your homes after the passing of each nineteen years; thus hath it been ordained by One Who is Omniscient and All-Perceiving. He, verily, is desirous of refinement, both for you yourselves and for all that ye possess; lay not aside the fear of God and be not of the negligent. Whoso findeth that his means are insufficient to this purpose hath been excused by God, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Bounteous.
Baha'u'llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas
It hasn't been 19 years since we moved into our present house -- more like 16. Nevertheless, Bonita has been transforming the look of our home, with a focus on the furnishings of the living room. She "is desirous of refinement." This photo reflects new additions to the decor made today. -gw
