I drink coffee every morning. And almost every night.
And sometimes I even sneak an afternoon cup in there:).
So, I'd love to share a cup with you...
(I like hot (green) tea too, so tea drinkers are not excluded!)
So grab a cup:)...
And we can pretend that we are girl-talking over yummy smelling cups of Jo:).
I'd tell you that we are so excited to be in the midst of spring. It has been around 80 degrees here the last two days~ just perfect. Makes my soul feel so refreshed just to be outside.
Philly and Niamh started spring sports, so we have something almost every night...which is fun.exciting.exhausting...There is just something about sitting on the bleachers watching kids play ball that is just plain, old awesome:).
All the yellow flowers in our yard bloomed this week. Talk about loving the sunshine:).
We are re-doing our front room. Right now, it is scary. I am pretty sure an animal has found its way in there and is throwing parties at night. Anyways, it is getting a new wall, and Phil said I could chalkboard-paint it. Wahoo!!!!!!!!
I have been taking my runs outside; which for me, is not my thing. I am the weirdo who LOVES a treadmill. But I've wanted to spend the running time just quiet (no music) and with God. Thinking about beautiful things like the sun and warmth and nature sounds. And I kinda like the crunch of the dirt beneath each footstep:). Sorry treadmill, earphones, and Flo Rida...I'm digging this solo running thing:).
I'd tell you that Phil and I are reading a book called The Hole in Our Gospel. It was sort of a by-accident-thing. We signed up for a Bible study on Wednesday nights...peeked through the door and noticed that everyone in the room was, um, well...older:). So, we snuck into a different study (so we could meet people our own age because we are still fairly new to this church). We ended up with this book in our hands. God has a funny way of steering you in the exact direction you need to move sometimes:). I am so excited to know that God is preparing our hearts for whatever He calls us to in the future.
On that note, I have just been feeling like God wants me to focus more on my impact for Him. He has blessed me richly this year in meeting so many awesome people through blogging and crafting...but I definitely want to stay open to his calling and possible ministry. This blog is my favorite part of what I do:), so I'd like to re-focus it and maybe even move it gently in a new direction. (I'll still share artwork and the occasional freebie, promise:). Change is good, and new dreams are totally motivating:)...
So, what is going on special in your life? Any new opportunities, dreams, goals??
Are you enjoying spring weather??
Do tell! I am off for an outside run;), but can't wait to read about you when I get home!
Huge hugs to you all<3.
Thanks for the coffee talk:).
