Hello, friend! I hope you had the best February and feel the same giddy butterflies I feel for spring marching in. The sunshine peeking through, the green grass popping up, and the colors beginning to revive themselves after months of a lifeless appearance. There’s something so good for my soul that happens every spring. It’s like a refresh to my vision and perspective. I love this time of year!
What am I dreaming about for the next couple of months? I want to buy a plant box for my back porch for starters. I am determined to become a gardener… lol. Ok, more realistic: To plant some herbs and flowers that don’t die. I also have a DIY plan (dream) to paint my back porch a checkered look. Stay tuned. Highly likely to not happen because I am 0% a DIYer… but I actually think I could do this one. So, here’s hoping… hehe. Anybody else like me in this!?
A Word from Proverbs:
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1: 7
The fear of God is actually saying “I fear being anywhere you’re not because you’re so perfect and great- give me wisdom to hear your voice and walk in your ways.” Remember that as you navigate your days and find yourself praying for something. God, we want your WISDOM that sometimes even means NO for something we desire or is seemingly good. Ask for WISDOM and he will give it to you, friend.
I think the general essence of Proverbs, the sincere care for us with direct instruction, is an encouragement for the way we parent our babies, lead our homes, lead in our workplace… whatever you’re in charge of. Wisdom is direct. It’s setting gracious boundary lines to allow for freedom within the safety of wisdom.
A few things I am DIGGIN’ these days:
- The new Morgan Wallen album. O M G. The perfect springtime album driving with the windows down and a Sonic cherry limeade.
- Target’s spring selections. I LOVE ALL THE COLOR. They did such a great job with all their lines this season! I needed a couple pairs of pants for Sundays and found two great ones for under $30 each. SO GOOD. I linked those and a couple other favorite finds here.
- Our Playhouse [here]! Y’all, I dreamed and hoped the boys would use this thing as much as they do. It’s been a game changer around our home to be able to say “Y’all go outside and play” and they actually want to. It’s given me a slice of peace inside throughout the day to get a couple things done. The price point is incomparable and it feels sturdy. It did endure hurricane winds and a tornado that barely missed our home last week… So I can confirm it is indeed a quality buy to withstand the weather. 😉
