More Small Moments

free printables and easy ways to get more out of life
This week might be piggy-backing off of last week's MORE Gratitude Post, but I think we (ME!) need to enjoy, focus on, appreciate the small moments more.

We get so busy we forget to even notice the small moments.  But, in retrospect, I realize it is the small moments that matter--the simple things.

Sunday Verses

God is the author of peace and he wants us to live in peace
Happy Sunday! The other evening the teen wanted to go for a drive in the country (the joy of having a freshly issued driver's license has not worn off yet). I grabbed my camera and she chauffeured me around on back roads that I have never been on before. We saw cows, deer, eagles, hawks, green fields and full streams, a beautiful sunset --it was all very peaceful. God wants us to feel this kind of peace, His peace, always. Everywhere around us there is disorder and confusion and strife, but God says, "Come to me, listen to me, follow me, rest in me and I will give you peace." God is the author of order. This week let's try to live in and trust HIS peace.

Rustic Farmhouse Desk and Work Table

make a desk from pallet wood and scrap two by twos

Days when I get to "play" in the workshop with no real plan are my favorite days! Yesterday's play time (while it was snowing outside) resulted in this fun rustic/cabin/farmhouse style desk or work table.

MORE Gratitude--Practice Gratitude to Change Your Life

add gratirude to your daily routine
Wow, that title has hints of a late night infomercial in it!  But, I truly believe (as do researchers) that purposefully practicing gratitude and thankfulness is life changing.

Sunday Verses

inspiring verse about giving it all to God
Happy Sunday and Happy Mother's Day! We all know the saying, "Don't put your eggs all in one basket."  And that is good advice for some things such as money and other life risks. But, when it comes to loving and trusting God, we are asked to do the opposite.  When we put all of our "eggs"--our time and efforts, our love and faith, our energy and talents--in God's basket, he will use them in ways that we could never imagine.  When we simply love God and others with all we have, we find contentment and peace. This week, let's work at putting it all in God's hands and letting him do the rest, amen?!

Simple Pallet Signs

I have been enjoying a whole bunch of this--the great outdoors.

Which means I haven't been seeing or using much of this:
use pallet wood to make simple sign

But a few stray pallet boards were calling me to make then into simple signs, so I did.

MORE YOU on MORE Mondays

easy ways to get more out of this year

Have you ever used the phrase with your kids, "Do as I say, not as I do,"? We tell our kids to be themselves, to be unique, but how many of us forget to do the same? We follow the latest trends, we compare, and worry if the choices we make are "okay".
