Rainy Days and Tuesdays…

I had my “Louisville Grands” for the long weekend, and it threw me all off schedule! It was so fun to be able to meet mom and dad half-way and pick them up (and drop them off), and we had so much fun. It’s a perk of living closer to them that I adore!

Tuesday rolled around, full of rain and chores, but needing rest. I’m not 40 anymore! Ok, not 50 or 60 even! Still the day had lots of opportunities to do things fun and must-do.

I finished my wreaths for the front doors, a few loads of laundry, and watched a lot of tv today: I also had an international call with a friend of mine in Portugal, texted with a friend recovering from surgery, and rested when I needed to! All the things didn’t get done, but the most important ones did, and the rest will be here tomorrow! Thanks Hallmark Channel for keeping me company today! Y’all played some of my favorites!

I’ve had some good feedback on my wreaths, and I really had fun creating them. I had seen similar ones on Pinterest, but loved coming up with my own version, using corals, purples and blues and a center bottom flower display. They came together rather quickly…but as they hang on the door I’m wondering if I should paint the beads? My husband actually has an opinion, and thinks that the raw wood doesn’t stand out enough. I may paint them coral, periwinkle, or green, to help define them a bit more. Maybe next Tuesday!

Merry Christmas

I've been really busy, and not busy enough. My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
