Just like each month, February came and flew by. February was full of sunny days, running around and playing tag and hide-and-seek with preschoolers, strumming and singing Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" on the ukulele, and getting loved on by family, co-workers, and friends on Valentine's Day. It was a short, but very full and fun month.
How was YOUR February?
Happy Friday, friends! I ended up taking a few days off of work to get rid of a cold (and that's why you've seen me online more, haha) but that doesn't mean I'm not excited for a weekend full of fun (as opposed to sleeping and sitting/resting).
Do you have plans for the weekend? Are you snowed in? Or are you enjoying the sun?
Plus another a cute photo album idea.
And a fun (and easy!) way to update your frames.
Adding this print to my wishlist.
The sweetest thing ever.
And the perfect sweet treat, too.
One of the most beautifully vivid metaphors I've read in a long time.
Sweet potato fries will always be my fave.
10 books every aspiring blogger should read. Adding these to my to-read list stat!
"We always have a great God who doesn't make mistakes." AMEN.
I have my eye on this duvet cover.
And some very truthful words for the weekend.
Have a great one!
filed under: bits and pieces
Two months in, and I know that this word and I were meant to be. It's been a rough start to the year, but in a way, it's been a good rough start. Sure, I haven't enjoyed every minute of the tough times, but I've learned a lot about myself and my faith, too.
As for February, there are two things that really stuck out to me in terms of believing:
BELIEVING THAT THERE IS GOOD TO COME. DON'T GIVE UP!
This one is a lot like last month's but it's something that I've had to remind myself of countless times. There have been some stressful moments at work and with teaching in general and I've had to remind myself that I cannot give up. I love teaching way too much to give it up right now!
ADMIT AND BELIEVE THAT I'M AN IMPERFECT SINNER.
I believe one of the biggest misconceptions about Christians is that we have everything put together. Newsflash! We DON'T. Well, at least I don't.
I was writing in my journal a few nights ago and it really flashed to me that I tend to pretend that I'm perfect and that I've got it all put together. But in reality? I'm a sinner, I have sinned and still sin. BUT, I'm saved by grace.
And if you're familiar with the ABC's of becoming a Christian (Admit, Believe, and Confess), I realized that in order for me to truly accept His grace, I need to admit that I'm a sinner and believe that He's forgiven me.
What have YOU learned this month? What are you hoping to learn in March?
