My Thoughts On // Pressing Forward

Lately I’ve felt the Lord impressing the truths from Philippians 3:13-14 on my heart.  These familiar verses read: “…but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

My Goals // October 2017

How was your summer, girls?  I cannot believe it is nearly October!  Autumn is here and I’m impatiently enthusiastically waiting for the cooler temperatures to arrive and STAY all day every day :)  Isn’t this season filled with so much loveliness?  I think so!

James 4:14

“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life?  It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”
~ James 4:14, KJV

Thankful Things

Hey y’all!  Today I’d like to just keep it simple and tell you of a couple sweet little blessings in my days these past few weeks.  After all, we’re supposed to count our blessings!  But while I’m at it, why don’t I share a few photos, too? :)  Thankful for these little blessings God has given!

Pursuing Simplicity in the Way We Dress

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about making every moment in our lives count for Christ.  After identifying some of those “worth-it” things, I realized that every day I waste so much time on things that are rather pointless.  We all do, really.  Honestly, do we have to spend as much time as we do on certain things?  While it seems like the world “simplicity” is virtually unknown in our culture, we need to embrace and pursue it and use the extra time we gain through that to serve the Lord.

Currently: August

Starting… a “smash book.”I’ve seen inspiration for these types of journals all over Pinterest, so I finally decided to begin my own.Basically the idea is to take a journal and put random little things in it such as letters, Bible verse cards, short notes, stickers, and things like that.Since I’ve started completely hand-lettering my cards, I have this collection of washi-tape that’s just been sitting in a basket unused.Washi-tape is perfect for securing things in a smash book!Not to mention that it adds color and cuteness all around.

A 4-Point Overview in Hand-Lettering

I’ve been wanting for some time to write a post or two on hand-lettering, but as you can tell, that hasn’t happened.  I didn’t want to go much longer without writing about lettering since I already took photos and all for a few lettering posts.  So seeing it’s about time I get another blog post out for y’all anyway, I figured that today I’d pull something together that I could include some of those photos in. So here is a super quick, 4-point overview in hand lettering!
