bringing in the new year being stuck in bed sick was not really the vision i had hoped for when looking forward to turning the calendar over to a new year ahead. i am having a quiet, slow start. but i am really excited to see where He takes me this year.
.
i know i can not do it alone, so by His grace, i am seeking His purpose for me and i will be doing this new year following His great plans for me.
.
i have lots of new art i am excited about, a wonderful big, new project in the works, new colors, new sizes, a fresh new planner just waiting for me to fill up.
.
speaking of planners… don’t you just love the thought and sight of a brand new planner waiting for you to grab your favorite pen, stickers, notes, tape and start filling it up? yes, i am a bit of a nerd. filling my planner is one of my favorite things to do.
.
fyi… this planner, not the first year i have used one and i love it! it is pretty and sturdy and inspires me. another something new this year… i am sharing an affiliate link to this awesome planner. (http://shrsl.com/1dekq)
.
so whether you had an exciting start to this new year or more of a peaceful one, i pray for you a year full of good things to come with Him guiding your way.
.
happy 2019, friends! ♡

friends, are you ready? is your heart ready? have you prepared Him room?
.
it can be so easy to get caught up in all the busy of this season. there are endless things to do and not enough time to do it all. i know... we all get that.
.
but don't let all that stuff keep you from preparing your heart to truly take in the wonder of Christmas. through the busy... remember to make Him the center of this season!
.
merry Christmas, my sweet friends. ♡

i have to say... i really do think that nebraska has some of the most beautiful winter mornings one can find.
.
even though it was so nice and comfy in the house, i could not pass this morning up. out i went. it was foggy and every single thing was frosty.
.
the details of the frost, so strongly covered everything, yet so delicate i could blow it away, was absolutely stunning.
.
our Creator awes me. ♡
.
have you enjoyed a stunning winter morning recently? where were you, what did you see?!

we have come to learn that life is not all about the healing that we want. it is about living through the trials we are given, learning to be completely dependent on Him.
.
it is not about what we want; it is about what God wants for us.
.
it is not about having an easy life; it is about living a life meant to make us holy.
.
my honest thoughts on prayer today at (in)courage. join me? link is in bio.

the Lord has come to us. let heaven and nature sing!
.
i have a special order for this winter art print in a small standing canvas {6" x 6"}.
.
simple, pretty, peaceful message. ♡
.
anyone else interested? i decided to offer it to everyone for just a couple of days before i place my order. i put the link in my profile.

oh yes... it is officially cookie season!
.
our family gets together every year after thanksgiving to make lots and lots of cookies. then everyone takes home an assortment... some to keep and some to share. it is one of those special ‘memory making’ days.
.
i worked on decorating most of the time. my grandma loved them and said i needed to post a picture of them. lol i forgot to take one of all of them, but we had these few i could show you.
.
we had 5, yes 5, generations making cookies this year! isn't that awesome?! ♡

yes... i am still here, friends!
.
living His plan for me, which isn't looking like the one i had for myself. my constant prayer... that He may be my guide. ♡
.
want to know what i have been up to? sharing an update on my blog. {link in profile}
.
also includes a hint of why you might want to be signed up for my newsletter before tomorrow evening.

God uses us, as imperfect as we are, in our less than perfect circumstances, to do His great work.
.
we won’t know what He has planned for us unless we give Him the chance to show us by trusting Him and stepping out in faith.
.
i want to encourage you today: the time is now. step ahead in faith. He is waiting for you. ♡

from our point of view, things can look messy, but that isn’t the view that matters most.
.
God has the correct point of view. He can see the whole picture and how all the pieces fit together. He has worked through the messy before, so we can trust that He will continue to work through the messy.
.
if you happen to be in one of those difficult seasons, the ones i call messy, this post is for you. ♡

the path God has us on looks different for each of us, but we are all on this journey of life together. none of us are perfect. none of us have the best, happiest life.
.
there is no room to cast judgments because life is hard enough, and we are all trying to do our best.
.
let us walk alongside one another, lifting one another up along the way with love and kindness.
.
i challenge you today to build someone up. encourage someone with your words. tell them what you admire in them. there are so many ways to lift up those around you. don’t be shy! ♡
