Hiiii my loves! Can you believe another weekend has come and gone? I certainly can’t. Ok, ok I can… it was just a two day weekend for me and those always go by way TOO fast. During these
way too short weekends, there isn’t exactly enough time to do anything that requires a lot.
If you’ve been a reader over the past few weeks or know me personally, you know how much I love a good old fashioned DIY. So, on Friday after work I made a few trips around town and was reminded of how much I love The Dollar Tree… it has so much good stuff. I had a bunch of ideas for future projects and they had pretty much everything I needed… Jackpot! (make sure you subscribe over there <– to keep up with upcoming projects.) Other than that, the weekend was pretty quiet. Which was exactly what I needed; an extremely relaxing and restful couple of days.
Since I haven’t had too much going on this week and weekend, here is my life lately according to my iPhone…
ps. Recently I’ve been extremely inspired by the book of Romans in the bible. I was torn between two verses and thought to myself, there’s no reason I cant share both. As a result, I am going to share both of the AHMAZINNGG verses from Romans over the next two weeks. Here is the first one:
The actual scripture says: “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” My interpretation of this goes back to the importance of Grace and my intense thankfulness for what Jesus did for us. I heard something recently that posed the question, why did Jesus have to be beaten to an unrecognizable state? The answer was that in those moments he looked like we do as sinners; and because of those sins, we are unrecognizable as to what we were created to be. Hence Jesus being crucified and taking our rightful place. The amazing thing to get out of this is that God recognizes that and knows we are going to sin, but still loves us so unconditionally he sacrificed his son; so, we can be forgiven of those sins. May we be, once again, recognized as creations “in His image”. This is what we are truly meant to be, the purpose for our very lives.
