Remember

There’s a theme that’s been heavy on my heart over the past two weeks.  I don’t quite even have the words to express it to you all, but I want to try today.  If you read Monday’s post, you may remember that I mentioned it there.  Today I’d like to expand that thought.

Devotional Journaling

I’ve always been one to write in a journal–my oldest journal dates back to when I was seven years old and just starting to write.  I’m a fairly organized person, so each journal sort of has a different purpose–one for writing events and hopes and how I feel in, and one for prayers and church notes and all that jazz.  Today, I want to tell you about some journals that combine devotionals and writing.

I’ll Give You What I Can’t Keep

This day has been beautiful and emotional and hectic.  A day of pressing in to hear from God and encouraging others.  The following post is an excerpt from a e-mail I sent some of my friends this morning.  The words have continued to ring true and echo throughout my day, so I decided to adapt them to share with you all also.

December Updates

Okay, okay, okay — it’s the post you’ve been waiting for all week! Updates! Where have I been? What have I been doing? What have I been thinking? When will I be back to writing? {Well, you may not have been that interested in my life or even realized that I’ve been slacking off on writing.  But if you have — and hey, even if you haven’t — here are the answers to those burning questions.}

November Favorites

November FLEW by, honestly.  I can’t believe we are on the other side of Thanksgiving day, although my wallet after Black Friday leaves me in no doubt that the holidays have indeed passed.  Now, as it’s ALREADY DECEMBER, I wanted to take a moment to look back over some of my favorite things from November.  The list isn’t super long, because I blinked and the month was over, but each item on here was very impactful to me.

Ellie Claire Journals

I was recently invited to a campaign to review three beautiful hand-lettering/coloring/ journals.  Each of these three journals are unique and focus on different creative aspects.  One is geared more specifically towards hand lettering, another towards illuminated letters, and one towards adult coloring with intricate designs reminiscent of stained-glass windows.  In each, there is room for journaling as well as practicing your hand lettering creativity.

Musings of Wonder

I’m a deep thinker.  Sometimes my mind trails off in wonder over something that many overlook or consider ordinary.  Today I just wanted to share some of the things that I contemplated over the past week to see if anyone else ever thinks about these things too. I don’t think we take time to stop and be curious often enough.  I’ve found that the more I travel and wander, the more I wonder.  Being full of wonder is often seen as exclusively a childhood experience, but I think adults need it too–we all have an inherent need to be wonder-full.  It’s that wonder that can and should project us towards compete wonder of God and His goodness, which results in praise.  And praise is how we fight our battles.
