Thrifting Files {Geo Trending}

I don't know about you, but I'm loving this geometric trend here lately.  So, when I spotted  this retro geo-shaped souvenir for less than a dollar at Goodwill, I happily put it in my buggy. 

All it needed was some spray paint {I chose gold}...

Ta da!  What's old is new again!  What trends are you currently loving?

Spray Painting Love,

When I am Afraid

Psalm 56:3

Sometimes I feel like I can't escape it.  The enemy seeks to see the fear overpower my soul.  But Truth from the Word gives me comfort & courage to remember I am not alone - & the One that is with me is mighty & strong & has overcome it all.

Love, Peace, & Strength in Christ,

Singles' Appreciation Day, Girls!

These new Jamie Grace songs are perfect for today!  Loving em!  Take a listen & decide for yourself!

So, here it is...  February 14th.  I was hoping to be busy & surrounded by folks at work, but the snow canceled all that.  I typically cherish a day to sit alone & ponder {& clean house}, but not necessarily for Valentine's Day.  However, I'm loved!  I'll buy some flowers & her favorite craft magazine & stop by my mom's later to wish her a happy love day {so blessed to have her - thank You, God}.  I've got some Hot Wheels for my nephew with the cheesy tag, "I wheelie love you!" {thanks Pinterest}.  I've already read 1 Corinthians 13 this morning - even though most of us know the verses by heart, it really is powerful stuff to read {I encourage you to if you haven't in a while}.  Oh, & did I mention even though I thought I'd never in a million years join an online dating site, I found myself registering for a free trial on the first snow day of this week?  More on that later.  So far it's seems strange & I don't think I'll upgrade to a paid subscription, but as my late grandma always said, "Nothing ventured, nothing gained."  Hmmm....  Well, that's my ramble for this Singles' Appreciation Day, perhaps they'll be more later.  Know you are loved & cherished by the best Love ever: Jesus.
