I think God reminds us to just relax! sometimes through our animals. He looks pretty dang relaxed to me. "ahh, post bathtime nap"

Being Aware

What does Living The Gospel look like to you?

'Sometimes its something just as small as helping someone find something in a store or complimenting someone on their fabulous smile. I think its really easy to just notice people & keep walking, so anytime we stop & give a bit of time to somone that stands out from the way of the world. I am currently trying to do it in a bigger way by starting a business selling various art goods that will bless people in 2 ways: First, the products will literally speak love, truth & encouragement to its viewers while calling them to join in & pay it forward. Secondly, half of all the proceeds will go to fund micro loans to entrepenuers in developing nations. It love that its a tangible way to create a ripple effect of God's love in a direct, life giving way. Yay! God!' ~Len

Love Overflowing

'Funny sisters who love each other so much just OOOOOZE Jesus to me! So much genuine love and so much JOY...that can only be straight from God Himself. The fact that I just don't have words to describe how happy my nieces make me also reminds me that they are precious gifts from my Father above. My heart gets a glimpse of that "out of this world" kind of love that we'll all get to experience for eternity with our heavenly family. Hallelujah!!!' ~Jessica

By the foot

I have my very first; very own, square foot garden!  Should soon be cooking with zuchinni, squash, tomatoes, herbs, and peppers from our VERY OWN GARDEN soon! All of various sorts..

Walking the walk

So, This response to my call for items that represent LIVING the gospel without preaching it one of the best examples of what we have been called to do. What is so touching, is that you can see the sweetness in this man's heart through his eyes.

Proverbs 22 : 9 "Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor."

'These are my absolute favorite trees in the whole wide world. Someday I want a yard full of them and for the 2 weeks or however long they bloom I'm just going to lay out in the middle of my yard and stare at them. These have been my love notes from God this spring. They're like sweet kisses on my eyelids from our wild Creator of all things wonderificly beautiful.' ~Lisa

I accept your Challenge :)

A dear friend challenged me to stop and notice love notes from God that I am thankful for. And put them in a thanksgiving journal.

Find beauty. Find the Gift. Thank God for it.

... until I reach 1,000!! here is #1 BRING IT ON!

'Why? The way of Thankfulness brings joy and healing to you heart.' I ask, who would not want that? Are you in?!


Thankful to God for the encouragement to sit in the hammock with a book this afternoon, and enjoy the spring! Sometimes we forget that we are also called to stop. rest. This is what I call living life to the FULLEST!

I snuck this picture of my friend staring up at the magnificence of the vibrance of the moon on Saturday night. It was beautiful to see what God created so awesomely. But, it was awesome to enjoy it with friends. :)

Look into the Sun!

I was visiting with a few lovely ladies one afternoon. We walked outside and the trees were blooming, the sky was blue; it was crisp. I thought 'MAN, I LOVE Spring!' A season of New Life! huh? its early, but its like the trees are as excited about spring as we are! It was a beautiful image to see this tree blossom against the sky. My attempt to capture it in film just doesn't do it justice. But, I'm sure you have a gorgeous branch in your neck of the woods to view. If not, you can image it through this picture. There is hope in this, to me.

I pray that even when I feel beautiful, blooming and full of new life, the brightness of the Light within me, outshines my being, just like this beautiful blooming tree against the light of the sun.
