Hey there friends!! I hate to say this will be a regular series, because to be honest, I’m terrible at those!! 😳 But…I’m going to try!! I am always finding things that I love on the interwebs! I try to share them with my hubby, but honestly he doesn’t care most of the time. 😆 He tries his best to act interested, bless him. 😉 So, I thought maybe you would like me to share them with you!! So here we go with “High Five on Friday”!
Hey friends! Like many of you we have had somewhat of a stutter start back to school this winter. One day of school, and then snow. Four days of school and then…sorta ice. My girlie went back to college, but the big boy still has a couple of weeks at home. Honestly I don’t know what day it is most days. This mama is ready for a little bit of a regular routine for a good while. I’m ready to get back to DIY and crafting and projects. I have so many things swimming around in my DIY mind! Ha! Maybe you saw my insta-stories last on Monday, where I shared a lot of those things!! I finally got out of the house and made a trip to Home Depot for supplies for a simple project that I finished in a day! And, today I’m sharing with you!
What is it about the new year that gives everyone the organizing bug?? You’ll see it everywhere. People are dumping the clutter and getting their spaces organized. I’m so with you!! Maybe it’s all the stuff that comes with Christmas. The decorations, the gifts, the boxes, the ribbons, the bows. Maybe it’s the excitement of a new year. Things will be better this year! I will be organized! I will not be ruled by the stuff!
I don’t often decorate for winter. Typically our home goes into basic décor mode after Christmas and stays that way until fall. Ha! Great home décor blogger huh? This year I took down Christmas and my mantel sat blank for a week.
It was nice to let the house breath for a while. To feel the quiet in the space after all the noisy Christmas décor. (don’t get me wrong, I love it)
I wasn’t really planning on having a “word” for 2017. I don’t do that often. Maybe once or twice. But, as I sat in church on New Year’s Day, I was struck. Have you ever had one of those moments? You know, when you are in deep prayer, and God is near. I would love for them to happen more often, and I know that is my short coming not His. But Sunday I was struck. I heard God’s voice. Now, each time this has happened to me, I only hear one word. Maybe He knows that I’m not mature enough to be still long enough to hear more, I don’t know, but one word answers are what I get. And to be honest it’s all I need. The word spoken is full of meaning, and is all I need to know exactly what He’s getting at. What’s the word you might ask??
