Dear Ben, you let me sleep in yesterday morning while you got yourself ready for work. Thanks for loving me selflessly, and being willing to make your own lunch every now and then. Also, thanks for never missing a morning of letting me know when you make it to work. You graciously pay attention to my tender heart when it comes to things like that, and just a simple text knowing you are safe always puts me at ease. Thanks for paying attention to the details of my heart.
Dear weekend, you are looking so promising. I am beyond excited to celebrate the wedding of a dear friend, and make sweet memories as she becomes a wife. So excited for all you hold starting today.
To our puppy, we are working hard on our "puppy fund" to bring you home soon and very soon little one. Ben has been making a million wood burned cutting boards to pad our fund a little more so we can buy you all kinds of things when we bring you home. Cannot wait to meet you and bring in a new little life to our family of two.
Dear wife day, this week you were like gold to me. I am grateful for one day a week to rest, stay in my pj's guilt free, clean, bake and watch food network. Managing our home is a joy for me so thanks for giving me one day a week to focus wholeheartedly on our humble abode.
Dear self, remember to strive to be like Jesus, not Southern Living magazine. Your life is not your own, so stop trying to make much of YOURself, YOUR home, YOUR marriage, and strive after making life about the one who created you, sustains you, and calls you his child. Accept messes, incomplete to do lists, curve balls, weariness, and inadequacy...embrace it all, and rest in the strength and sovereignty of Jesus. Do this EVERY DAY.
I really enjoy stopping and reflecting on my gratitude in the form of letters. It is always so refreshing to my soul. Do you write notes to your loved ones, and even to yourself from time to time?
I read this prayer yesterday on She Reads Truth, and knew I had to share it with you all. So powerful, raw, and beautifully written. I am even considering printing it and framing it somewhere in our bedroom, and buying the book of prayers.
I will be giving away one print that says, "Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders"!! Enter the giveaway below!
The winner will be announced next Monday! Happy Weekend y'all!
