My word for the year. I feel that God has been calling me to go in places I never thought I would. The thing is to just trust Him. He will make a way. It's funny because last year my word was brave. It truly was a year of being and learning to be brave. Take a deep breath and say "yes" to whatever God has placed in my life. Interesting how closely these two words are connected. Let's do this!!🙌 #wordoftheyear#courage#trust#trustgod#trusthisplan#lyfcourage#liveyourfaith#dayspring

晩上，丫妹拿著這張 invitation card 很興奮地跟我説她受到校長的邀請共晉午餐。雖說所謂的 lunch party 就是把自己的飯盒拿去 hall 跟校長一起吃，但那已經夠她樂透半天。 我問：你有一個已準備好的飯盒，那校長要吃什麼啊？ 她尷尬一笑，我也不知道唷！ 我說笑道：你可以跟她一起分享妳的飯盒啊！ 這回她可不回答我了 🤣 我忽然想，學校擁有的這種文化，不就是社會的縮影嗎？這正正跟我舊公司的 ABC 計劃完全一樣 - A Breakfast with Country Management Team. Outstanding 的同事有機會得到公司 top management 的邀請一起共晉早餐 🥣 原來現在的小學生已經在這種模式中長大了。 孩子的心靈原是一塊奇妙的土地，播上思想的種子，就會獲得行為的收穫、播上行為的種子，就會獲得習慣的收穫。播上習慣的種子，就能獲得品德的收穫。播上品德的種子，就會獲得命運的收穫。 #命運原是掌握在你自己的手𥚃 #liveyourfaith#allaboutgiselle#haleyhahachan#1kpost
Day 77/100 of Grace and Gratitude. . . OK. Time to be super honest. This is my struggle. I’ve got tons of good excuses - but it boils down to this - I really stink at quiet focus. I am never in a quiet place. I even fall asleep with the television on. I don’t know why I fear quiet so, but I can tell you it’s my biggest hurdle in my prayer life. I’m good at quick prayers throughout the day as situations arrive, thank you, God, that my son got to Miami safely, please God let me show my best for you while serving in worship this week, oh God, you know how much I want to be back on a stage - don’t let my fear win at this audition. Those I have all day long. But to sit in quiet and pray and listen - I envy this in others and struggle with this myself. I’ve been working on this thus far in 2019, but still have a long way to go. . . #if_graceandgratitude #if_100daysofgraceandgratitude #biblejournaling#biblejournalingcommunity#biblejournalinglife#biblestudymoments#devotionalkit#illustratedfaith#dayspring#liveyourfaith#pray#illustratedfaithcommunity#100daysofgraceandgratitude#newyearnewme#newyear
My niña in Cuba, Yordeilis, helping me practice Spanish 2 years ago. I was inspired to help her after a chance meeting in Oct 2015 and that was the beginning idea for LiveBreatheAlive.com. It’s transformed since then into a faith-based mission and I still work to help this little girl. I'm getting ready to mail her another care package. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She is a girl that God brought in my path to help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photos on this post are from the Cuba Collection.

Omg! It’s soo good going back and remaking childhood memories! I hadn’t made a snowman like this in too many years, I’m so grateful I got the opportunity to again and with my friend who just moved here all the way from India. It was her first time!! Meanwhile our husbands threw snow balls at us😐😄💖❄️☃️
Eighteen months have passed since we lost Justin. It's safe to say that all of us are having a hard time adjusting to the permanence of his absence. . It seems that grief is always present. I can compare it to an open app on my phone, stealthily running in the background, and sucking the juice out of my battery. . Last night, Tim and I went on a mini-date in celebration of our anniversary. We were both feeling rather subdued, each lost in our own thoughts. Finally, I looked over at him and said, "In no way I thankful that Justin died, no, not one ounce of me. But, I have never thought about or longed for heaven more than I do now." After the words left my mouth, I was reminded of all the journal entries and prayers I prayed pleading with God to give me an eternal perspective. I now see the cost involved. . Tonight, I realized that I have been subconsciously waiting for things to somehow return to normal. But, maybe that's the point, we aren't supposed to be that 'normal' again. I wouldn't trade my present perspective for one million dollars. . I am so grateful for the Lord's tender care, for His Word that feeds my soul, and His presence that has never once left me. . The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. Job 1:21ESV
“"Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near;” Isaiah 55:6 ESV . I just posted a new process video for this page! I’m continuing to work through the Grace and Gratitude Kit from @illustratedfaith and @dayspringcards and just love how it’s helping me set some goals for this year. Who else is looking forward to a year of bold prayers and living a life of boldness?! Head on over to my channel to check out the process and you can shop for this kit through the affiliate link in my profile 😉 #illustratedfaith#dayspring#biblejournaling#faithart#liveyourfaith#graceandgratitude#if_graceandgratitude
The first month of boxes shipped out today!!! ☺️🎉 Thanks everyone for a successful launch & all of the loving support! 💕 † Journey Unwrapped is faith-based subscription box that prompts reflection and delivers hope.
Receive the message on Sunday, live it out on Monday ❤️ and Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday and Friday....🙏🏻 . Faith is phony without action. Ask yourself- are my daily actions cooperating with my faith? Are the things I say and the things I do in alignment with one another? . It’s easy to proclaim your faith singing loudly for worship on Sunday. Easy to do the right thing when someone is watching. But integrity is more valuable than visibility 🙌🏻 . The same concept holds true for the goals you set for yourself. There is not always someone there holding your hand, someone looking over your shoulder. You need to step it up and live out these actions yourself. . Sharing as much for myself as anyone else out there who needed to hear this today. There is a difference between declaring your beliefs and living in them. . WALK IT OUT 🎤 💥 . . . Wild vibes brought to you by @goodamerican 🖤 #newfavorite#goodamerican#walkitout#athleticwear#liveyourfaith#leadbyexample#onlinecoach

Lew @littlelewcreates is on the CR blog this week talking about the fickle feeling of having control! 😬 "Let our desire to trust God be greater than our desire to control everything we touch just because we think we can." We are loving this month's #faithartbox devotional by Lisa Harriston Birch! See more of this #biblejournaling entry and heart behind it on the blog - link in profile.
Can you hear it? Heaven is filled with your praises, O Lord! All the holy ones are praising you for your miracles. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The sons of God are all praising you for your mighty wonders. We could search the skies forever and never find one like you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All the mighty angels could not be compared to you. You are a God who is greatly to be feared as you preside over the council of holy ones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You are surrounded by trembling ones who are overwhelmed with fear and dread, stunned as they stand in awe of you! So awesome are you, O Yahweh, Lord God of Angel Armies! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Where could we find anyone as glorious as you? Your faithfulness shines all around you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You rule over oceans and the swelling seas. When their stormy waves rise, you speak, and they lie still. Psalm 89:5-9
Seek the Lord with all your heart...with everything you have, with all of your mind, soul, and strength. Look for Him, talk to Him, watch for His face and he’ll watch for you. There are good things God wants to give you, but can’t outside of a Father son/daughter relationship with you. Sudden blessings coming your way 💫

Today marks our 24th year of marriage, @linklettertim ❤ . I will never forget how the Lord knit our hearts together on our very first date. All those years ago, our common bond was Jesus, and that bond only grows stronger day by day. . Neither of us could have ever imagined the loss we've experienced. I am certain we cannot begin to imagine what awaits us on the "other side of the glass", for there our faith will be made sight. . I love you with all of my heart and I would say " I do" 1,000 times over today. . Happy Anniversary, honey. ❤
Thank you @americasmartatl. It was real fun! Lots of memories and new stores and new connections made. One of my favorite things about a tradeshow is that fellow exhibitors become good friends. We had a meetup with fellow TSBC alumnae, a group I’m so thankful for, and it was a highlight of the week. Back home and ready to start filling orders and prepping for the @stationeryshow!
I’m new to “one little word”. I heard about it the first time last year but never really considered it. When everyone started posting about it this year, I did consider it but not seriously. I did do the Day Spring quiz but that didn’t feel like an authentic way to pick my word. 😉 Then I saw this month’s @felicityjanestudio kit, and knew I had to have it because well “Jill” and I’m Jill and their kits are always so gorgeous. After I read “Jill’s” bio, it was a done deal. In the bio, Jill has “KIND” as her #olw for 2019. I thought, hmmm....I could stand some more kindness, both giving and receiving in 2019, so I considered that for a few days, until one night, in the middle of the night, dead asleep, I literally heard someone speak the word “CHANGE” as if they were in the room with me. There are lots of possible explanations for this, I suppose, dreaming being the main one, but I really felt like God was giving me my word. I’ve never been one to hear God speak to me in such literal terms, so this is new! 😆 This word is a little scary, especially to small-town introvert like myself who has been in the same job for 20 years, had the same car for 15, married the same man twice, and loves the simple, ordinary of my life, but I’m going to trust in the Lord and see what changes 2019 has in store for me. #felicityjane#felicityjanestudio#olw#onelittleword#biblejournaling#biblejournalingcommunity#2019#illustratedfaith#craftymom#faithart#liveyourfaith • • • “"Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.
