Happy Monday my lovelies,
Do you have a (physical) space for inspiration?
I have a favorite chair in our den where I curl up as I read from God's word and spend time in prayer.
Before I share some inspiring places where I believe anyone could be inspired, let me ask if you have made some space in your day to be inspired?
Having an inspiring (physical) space is not enough friends, we must be committed to carving out some "quiet" space in our day.
It's in this quiet space where I believe life changing inspiration can begin.

Romans 8:37-39, No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

"I find it shelter to speak to you" - Emily Dickinson
Happy Monday lovelies,
I hope you have a friend who offers you shelter, I know I do.
My BFF is Lisa Barlow and we've been friends for 23 years. Lisa is a saint to say the least, but she's so much more than that. She has held my hand, wiped my tears, even been my partner in mischief.
She's everything I need in a BFF
Here are just a few of Lisa's BFF qualities:
She listens well and exudes grace.
She sees and speaks the truth in love (always).
She is self-less, giving and a true servant.
She is insightful as well as one of the smartest women I've ever known.
She is an encourager, cheerleader and mentor.
Here she is.
Mallory (our god-daughter), Rudy and the beautiful Lisa Barlow.
Tell me about your BFF.

Jeremiah 32: 17-19, “O Sovereign Lord! You made the heavens and earth by your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you! You show unfailing love to thousands…You are the great and powerful God, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. You have all wisdom and do great and mighty miracles.”

Hello my lovelies,
Are you struggling to recognize and appreciate the REAL you?
Are you pre-occupied with your physical appearance?
What truths have you learned about balancing how you look and how you see?
Just to inspire you, here are a few beautiful images to enjoy.

Hello my lovelies,
I believe we were made to have a relationship with God and one important purpose of spending time with God is to deepen our relationship with Him. Spending time with God daily will help us to cultivate that relationship. I have found having a continual conversation with the Lord throughout the day is most helpful in deepening that relationship. How do you structure your devotional time to ensure a meaningful, edifying, and purposeful time?

Happy Monday my lovelies,
Each of us has experienced the "storms of life" and I'm confident each of us has more than one story to tell. When I think about "storms of life" I think of a number of things our family has weathered. What about you friend, what storms can you share that challenged your spiritual foundation?
Luke 6:46, "He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well
Matthew 7:25-27, "The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” (NIV)
I've been studying this parable in these two books of the New Testament and I'm struck by many things. Today I'd like to rest on the fact that both houses were subjected to the same storms.
What words of wisdom can you share on the exhortation to build your house on a firm foundation?

John 16:33, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

I saw this on a decorating site a few months ago and fell in LOVE. I saw it again today on anther blog and it rekindled my enthusiasm for this headboard.
If the headboard I ordered 4 months ago doesn't arrive, I think I'll look into doing something like this.
Happy Weekend my lovelies!

I'm feeling blue today my lovelies,

Today I'm spending another day searching my house from top to bottom for an important item I've put away but cannot find. I can't say this isn't bringing me "Joy".
I think I'll use these images as inspiration.
What about you my lovelies, what is bringing you "Joy" today?
