Happy Saturday friends!! Sorry I’ve been a little MIA the last few days. I went out of town with Mark’s family for Thanksgiving and I’ve been busy spending time with them. But I wanted to be sure to share outfit deets + a few great sales today! I’ll be updating my black friday sales page later tonight, there are still so many good deals!
“Live well, loving God and others as yourself. Find little ways where only you can help, with His great love, a tiny rock can make a giant fall
dream small.” - @joshwilsonmusic
I heard this song on a Christian radio station a few weeks ago. As I drove, turning the song up louder and louder, I found myself smiling bigger and bigger with every lyric. I’ve always been a big believer in the message this song spreads. Small things can make a big difference. And that’s why I started my blog.
Maybe sharing inexpensive fashion dupes can help someone who can’t afford the real thing. Maybe my daily Instagram posts can brighten someone’s day or change their thinking, even just a little bit. Maybe, just maybe, I can help others by simply sharing who I am and what I love. And though the difference may be small, i believe it can multiplied.
I hope you’re having a great Saturday so far! My Instagram round-up is up on the blog + some of the best pre-black Friday weekend sales! Link in the bio 🔗 ❤️
Once a year my tiny white church does this incredible thing we call “Turkey Drop.” On this day we invite members of the community to drop in, enjoy some tasty treats and a warm bowl of chili, and drop off turkeys and other holiday meal items for families in need.
I was just told that the final count for this year was a total of 247 turkeys, with enough sides for full holiday meals. To put that into perspective, on an average Sunday my church only has about 30-40 people at our service. My town has a total population of less than 2,000. We may be small, but we are mighty.
Each and every year this mission amazes me more and more. It’s incredible what we can do when we all come together to spread His love. So when you see the signs advertising need at your local food pantry or church, realize your ONE donation does have an impact. A few cans of vegetables, a dessert mix, or one turkey can mean the world to a family in need.
I did it again. I looked in the mirror and picked myself apart. It’s that time of the month and hormonal acne has hit my forehead like a truck. And mood swings too. As I stared at the big red zit, I noticed a few thin lines forming across my head. Wrinkles. It’s been a long week and it’s only Monday. I cried multiple times in the last few days. I haven’t slept. I’m sick. My anxiety has been consuming me.
And then Mark simply said, “It’s alright my love, I still love you with all my heart. You shouldn’t worry so much. You should relax.”
I am strong. I am independent. And I am confident in who I am. But on my worst days, I still need reminders now and then. Sometimes we all just need a pick-me-up, a reminder to bring us back to the surface. So in case you’re in need of one like I was...you are beautiful. All of you. Your flaws, your scars, your insecurities. You are worthy. You have purpose here in the world and you are doing the BEST you can. You are loved. So loved, by so many, and forever by the creator Himself.
“Truth is, You know what tomorrow brings There's not a day ahead You have not seen.
So let all things be my life and breath,
I want what You want Lord and nothing less.”
Walking through the woods this morning, bird chirping, sun shining, heart full of love, peace and gratitude. That was the song that was running through my head.
Today I’m thankful for family. Thankful for friends. Thankful for food to eat, a roof over my head, clean water, good health, and so much more. Above all I’m thankful for His grace and love. Thankful for the knowledge that all rests in His hands. And His plan is greater than all earthly things.
Happy thanksgiving everyone! I hope your day is spent with ones you love, making memories to last a lifetime, and giving thanks for all the blessings in our lives. ❤️
