Have you ever felt like you were in a season of life where you were operating at full throttle? All the time? That’s how I’m feeling these days.
Don’t get me wrong – wonderful things are happening (two graduations and a wedding) – but I’m physically and mentally going 17 hours a day. It’s at times like this that I’m reminded – again – that I’m not 25 years old anymore!
25 year olds are often at the perfect time in their lives to discover Jubilee Furniture. Many are finding and furnishing a first apartment and so a 30,000 square foot warehouse chocked full of amazing, gently used furniture (and some household items) at reasonable prices is like finding a gold mine! A gold mine on North Ave. in Carol Stream, Illinois! Woot to the woo!
Here are a FEW of the things you’ll find at Jubilee Furniture today from 1 to 8 and tomorrow from 9 to 4:

No matter what season of life you’re in, dear reader, I pray you’re valuing relationships, looking for opportunities to bless others, remembering to laugh often and not take yourself too seriously (can you tell that’s something I need to work on?).
