Love me some monoline script. So simple and clean. โœจ

On a different note, I just wanted to let you know that today you are loved. Our Father sees the smallest details of our days and cares about them. He knows each restless heart; He sees each of the endless strivers and the ones who donโ€™t feel like theyโ€™re enough and says, I adore you. I am the one who sustains you. When you come running to me, I hold on to you, and I donโ€™t let go. โ€”
I donโ€™t know about you, but my heart needed that reminder today. ๐Ÿค—

"This is what October taught me:

My mind wants diligence. My soul wants rest. And I donโ€™t know how to marry the two.

Saying yes to everything that comes my way has burnt me out way too many times, but itโ€™s so hard for me to change. I need to be more selective, even if it means saying โ€˜no' to things I enjoy, for the sake of saying โ€˜yesโ€™ to the things that bring me life." ๐ŸŒฟ โ€”

Lessons from October just went up on my blog, even though we're halfway through November.๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

FINALLY tried my hand at wax sealing the other day, and Iโ€™m really enjoying this organic feel. Perfectly imperfect. ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’•

Just wanted to thank everyone who rallied around me yesterday in prayer. Iโ€™m so thankful for this community here and for each of you who made sure I was seen and heard. โ€”
Today, I took the day off to take care of myself and try to recover with slowness and intentionality, reminding myself that I am loved and known. I was never meant to do it all. โ€”

Hey there, my sweet friends. ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ I'm gonna be honest with you all: It's been a rough few days for me. My habitual facade has been good-looking and well-managed, but my heart has been anxious and overwhelmed. All I ask for is prayer in this season, because I'm not able to do life on my own strength. ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

(Hey, guys. Hey. I hope youโ€™re all doing well. Life has been really busy for me, so Iโ€™m a bit behind on my newsletter prep for this month. But Iโ€™m hoping to get that out next week, so go sign up on my website if you want a free lockscreen and some calligraphy insight. ๐Ÿค—)

โ€œMay I be diligent in work for the sake of rest.โ€ |Frani Matthews|
โ€”
So what if I quoted myself. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
I pulled this thought out of a huge brain dump/prayer because Iโ€™ve got this tendency to say yes beyond my capacity and that leaves ZERO time for rest. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
โ€”
The worst part is I donโ€™t even notice when this happens, and it takes someone (usually my husband) speaking lovingly into my life for me to realize that Iโ€™m working inefficiently and way too much. ๐Ÿ˜ซ
โ€”
That being said, itโ€™s time for me to prioritize rest again. To give myself time to be proud of the work, the creation, because itโ€™s good. ๐Ÿค—

I love the softness of a quick pencil sketch. Thatโ€™s all. ๐Ÿค— โ€”

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! Take it easy on yourselves. ๐Ÿ˜˜ โ€”

A little pretty for your Thursday. ๐ŸŒฟ โ€”
Speaking of flowers, hereโ€™s something Iโ€™m excited about: This Saturday, Iโ€™m speaking at a Nashville Letterers meet up (hosted by @loveleighloops + @letteringlinds) about my recent obsession with floral illustration. Iโ€™m so honored that theyโ€™d ask me to share my little pin-prick of knowledge and even do a demonstration. I canโ€™t wait to meet everyone! ๐Ÿ˜ญโœจ
