Sunday Verses

we need to stop comparing ourselves to others
Happy Sunday!  I love wildflowers. Each variety is different and beautiful in its own way. Wouldn't it be absurd if the flowers sat around and compared themselves to each other? But, we compare ourselves to others all the time. God created each of us individually and remarkably. Yet, even when we know this, we still compare just about everything--our homes, children, weight, spouses, jobs, vacations, etc. We need to stop. We need to embrace our individuality, our own strengths and weaknesses, and chose to appreciate those traits we admire in others rather than compare. When we trust and value God's opinion of us, we will not feel the need to compare ourselves with others and we will experience more peace and happiness.  This week, let's appreciate our uniqueness and stop the comparison game.

Back to School Box Made from Pallet Wood

Some of you have kiddos back in school already, wow! I know, across the country they all go pretty much the same number of days, but my little birdie that is still at home doesn't start until August 30th. 

With the onset of the new school year (whether it is now or soon), I thought a fun and quick gift idea for the teacher or for your child was needed so I cam up with this crayon shaped box made from pallet wood.

Sunday Verses

love is patient and love is kind
Happy Sunday! Today hubby and I are celebrating 29 years of marriage. Most of us, Christian or not, are familiar with the love verses in 1 Corinthians telling us what love is and how we should love one another. The love described in these verses is perfect love and something we strive for, but fall short of so many days. I think if we could master the first two descriptions of love--patient and kind--oh, what a different world we would live in. I try to remember to practice patience and kindness towards my husband and everyone and I repeat this verse under my breath when I am feeling anything but patient and kind. And, although I fail miserably, I continue to practice to love others the best I can with the perfect love that Jesus gives to us.

Upcycle a Vintage Picnic Basket

I have such a fondness for vintage picnic baskets. And while I don't collect them, I do like to find them and fix them up for re-sale.

Sunday Verses

change your perspective to see life differently
Happy Sunday! I just spent some time in one of my favorite places, Glacier National Park.  The natural beauty never ceases amaze me.  I took way too many pictures, trying different angles and views to get the perfect shot.  I lay on my back to get some photos or would try to get a shot from straight overhead. And, I was once again reminded that changing our perspectives changes what we see. Altering my perspective to God's view and looking at life through the lens of eternity gives me a much better picture and clearer vision. When I focus on what matters to Jesus and not what seems to matter here on earth, I am humbled and I remember to just breathe and to not worry, but rather enjoy a better perspective. Let's look at life through God's eyes--we will see so much more.
