Be Still

Psalm 46

"Therefore we will not fear, 
though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 
 though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging. 
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,  
the holy place where the Most High dwells.  
God is within her, 
she will not fall;" (vs. 2- 5)

 "He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.” (v. 10)

Psalm 46 seems to keep coming to mind all week.  What comfort and what challenge.  Seeing as my word of the year is "rest".

It reminded me of a song we sang at YWAM, one that I can't seem to find anywhere but one that I've sung many times in my head. 

"Though the mountains may crumble to the sea, 
though the ocean may swallow up the land, 
though the fire leaves everything in ashes, 
you still are God, 
and I will worship you" 

Anyone recognize it?

While searching for the song above I ran across this beautiful song.  I've been listening to it on repeat most of the week.  

Have a great weekend friends. I hope you find rest today.

Stitch Fix

My mom gifted me some money for Christmas for a Stitch Fix box. While my experience with Stitch Fix has been amazing, I personally know others who have had mixed experiences.  

Gisel, styled me again and once again didn't disappoint.  I kept two items perfect for chillier Colorado days.  

This Corinna Striped Dolman Top one of my new favs. It's so comfy!



I also kept this Cordella Striped Boat Neck Sweater .  Again, super comfortable and loved the neck line on it.  I'm prone to overheating but this sweater is looser without feeling frumpy and yet keeps me warm when it's winter out.
I chose not to keep the other three items.  One was a polka dot sweater, white and black, while cute, wasn't sure about the polka dots and didn't need two sweaters.

The Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee was nice but another t-shirt whether good quality or not was the last thing I needed to add to my wardrobe.

I did love the earrings but have a similar pair already.

I consider this a success, I'd prefer only purchasing a couple items and then doing another Stitch Fix the next season to keep my wardrobe refreshed.

Why hello!

Hello Sweet Friends,

I know I've only popped up around here about once a week but I still love writing and interacting with you.  A couple random things I wanted to share with you.

This book.  I'm not a reader, but as my word for 2015 is rest and I continued to hear about this book I knew it was one I needed to read.  Have you read it?

This song.  I heard it for the first time this morning and I've listened to it over and over again.  What are you listening to lately?

This recipe.  We haven't made this recipe in quite some time until last week and I had forgotten how delicious it it.  Perfect for a cold winters day.  We celebrated Lunar New Year with a Korean meal of homemade dakjuk along with mandu and deokbokki from our favorite local Korean restaurant.  What recipes have you been loving lately?

Stay warm friends.

Feel Safe & Feel Loved



I read this post awhile ago and I'm still thinking about it it.

"All I need is to feel safe and feel loved.
All they need is to feel safe and feel loved.

The end."


A good read friends. Let me know what you think.

I smiled...


Today...

I smiled and I didn't even try.

The smile ran deep.

I played in the snow and left the kitchen a mess.



I realized today I was carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders.

Expecting perfection from myself.

I cried and bared my heart to a friend and was reminded of truth.

In the end I just needed a heart reminder that everything doesn't rest on me.

Whether I handle a situation well or not, whether I feel equipped, no matter how many redo's I have in a day - it doesn't all depend on me.  A lesson I need a reminder of repeatedly.

The sun is out. The fog is lifting and today I breathe a little easier and I smile.



****
Written a few weeks ago when it was snowing...today it's sunny and 70. I'm thankful for the brightness in my heart and the literal brightness of these beautiful sunshiny days outside.

Walking with you friends. You're not alone.

Your Story


I had the privilege of spending time on several different occasions with several moms over this last week.  Moms in all different seasons of life, we drank coffee and shared life. Lots of laughter and tears.

I love when sharing stories leads to a sense of relief and a response, "I thought it was just me". 

Don't underestimate the power of your story, just as it is. It's being written for a reason.
