I was scrolling through Pinterest, looking at all things fall, when I came across this photo.
Then it really hit me… this is a season of change for the world, so why can’t it be a season of change for you and for me? A time where we shed the dead leaves to make room for new ones in the spring. So, this week, I challenge you, take a moment, and ask yourself, “what dead leaves do I have in my life?” As you begin to shed them, you may feel bare like a tree in the fall, but remember that God will fill you up with so much good and new when it comes spring!
Happy Monday!! Have a great week! And feel free to drop you dead leaves here in the comments! ❤️🍂🍃
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. –Colossians 3:23-24
Happy Labor Day to those in the US! And for those who don’t have the day off, make sure you make today count! You are serving the Lord no matter what profession you may be in! You have entered the mission field, make it count!
Monday’s are hard as they are. However, some Monday’s are a little harder than others. You wake up, but just can’t get up. The day ahead looks to overwhelming and staying in bed seems like the best option.
I just want you to know that’s okay. Whether you are able to talk yourself into getting up or you throw the blanket back over your head and go to bed.
We’re not made to be non-stop. We deserve a day. We deserve to take a pause. We deserve to breathe.
So whatever choice you have made this morning don’t beat yourself up. There will be more Monday’s ahead! So smile and just be!
Have a great day! God bless!
Just because you don’t feel like being yourself is good enough doesn’t mean you should act like someone else just to please those around you. God made you. He made one of you. He said the world wasn’t perfect without you. Just be you. Because you is all you are meant to be.
Not two words we normally see together. But hey, it’s almost the Fourth of July. Which calls for celebration. Fireworks, family, parties. And for all you out of the US followers, there’s always a cause for celebration. Always time for families and parties! So promise me this: don’t sit around and get your self in a hump. Wake up, enjoy the day, and call a family member and chat. Celebrate the day.
The sun is up. It’s a gorgeous day. Here’s your reminder that you too are gorgeous. Your mind. Your thoughts. Your heart. You.
P.S I’m back from Italy! So, regularly scheduled posts are back! I’ve missed you all! ❤️
We all have those days that we just don’t feel worth it. Why would God die for us? Why would God choose to save us? What makes us worth it?
The good news is that God died for us while none of us were worth it. That is just how much I love that God has for me and for you. So the next time that you don’t feel worth it, please remember that God’s love for you is not based on your work it’s based on his love and that is never ending.
God bless! Have a great week!
When we think of someone suffering, we tend to automatically assume sadness and grief for that person. We tend to overlook the joy they are portraying in Christ. We tend to overlook how people overcome their suffering to be who Jesus wants them to be. The potential God sees in us.
When we see a person with a background of suffering and a joyful presence, what do we think? Are we those people?
What if I told you these people were beautiful people? Would you believe me? I think Jesus says this loud and clear when He communes with these exact people.
Beautiful people see beautiful people. -Caroline Barsom
We are able to spot beautiful people because we are beautiful people. Isn’t that great? I want you to remember that YOU are beautiful!
Beautiful people teach us how to be real. How to use our past to be more Christ-like in our present.
Do you know beautiful people? In what ways have they taught you to be real?

We are all broken. That’s how the light gets in. -Ernest Hemingway
We always think of ourselves as broken human beings. That there is something wrong with us. What if I told you that it is a blessing to be broken?
God’s light shines within us. If we are broken, then the light is able to shine out for others to see.
By pretending to be perfect, we build walls that block God’s light. Embrace your brokenness. Embrace shining the light of God.
Have a great week everyone! ❤️
