it's a new week!
if you're not already, take some time this week to really soak up this season of easter. this free book from desiring god is an excellent tool for preparing our hearts as we celebrate the death and resurrection of jesus. (also, this guide for the lenten season is amazing. so catch up on that too!) easter seems to be a time that the lord refreshes my soul, and blesses me with new zeal for reading his word. that's happened again for me this year! and i pray it will be for you, too. a sort of kickstart, to really dig in and grow closer to the one who paid it all.
and on that note, if you have any questions about easter, jesus or the bible? email me, i'm happy to chat with you! i'm a work in progress, and i believe that the lord can reach more than just my own heart through the lessons he's teaching me now.
so. it's still mostly wintery around here. and i am sick with sinus mess. BUT.
we have sunshine today! and baby oranges and colorful napkins always help set a jolly tone.
patrick had several days off last week. praise jesus. even though we haven't felt 100%, we've been enjoying just being.
a lot of relaxing, dinosaurs, transformers, reading, netflix and cuddling.
and a little cleaning.
once i kick the sickies, i'm beginning the 30 day shred. it's always a huge help and i need it now. patrick took me shoe shopping, so i'm ready to rumble. soon, lord willing, it'll be nice and spring-y outdoors, and i can get some fresh air-fitness :)
sometimes i have so much on my mind at the end of the day, it's difficult to settle down. certainly not in place of, but in addition to prayer...i've found that reading a few children's books really calms me and boosts my mood. this veronica book is one of my favorites. have you read it?
have you seen new goodies trickling into the shop?
like this darling birdie on a twig?
i think the bees are my faves. two cute options:
new earrings, too!
linking up here today, you should too!
