Monday Musings


Every Monday, I will TRY to post whatever is on my mind (consider it a smorgasbord of thoughts and randomness) as a way to clear my head and prepare for the week ahead. By doing so, I hope to calm the chaos and organize the scattered. Cheers to 2015 and blessings to you!

I spent a great deal of time last week reminiscing about my trip to the Holy Land two years ago. It was such an incredible, life-changing, and Spiritually-enhancing experience. I don’t do it as often as I should, but I treated myself to longer showers and pampering facials using AHAVA products I purchased in Israel. The same items are available in the U.S., but knowing I brought them back home straight from the source makes me feel like I’m floating in the Dead Sea when I’m actually standing in my own shower or bathroom and enjoying a few minutes of quiet contentment. And, my skin feels and smells amazing. 🙂

Love is … I recently discovered this beautifully written series by a lovely lady named Kim. Visit her blog. You will be blessed and uplifted by her encouraging words.

Believe it or not, Zumba is an incredible cardio workout. Add a 3-pound weight to each hand and, after just a few minutes, that weight feels like 50! Saturday morning, I did a 60-minute Zumba class prior to another total body conditioning (circuit training) class and folks were surprised that the Zumba-ers were sweating. What? Did you think shaking what your Mama gave you was easy? Pfft.

A great article with three ways to tell a story with photographs instead of words.

Teaching our children to be obedient is a reward and requirement.

I participated in the “Intro to Bible Journaling” workshop yesterday at The Little Blue House in Keller. Three words: HOLY. SMOKES. WOW. Y’all get ready, I’m going to knock this #BibleJournaling and #IllustratedFaith stuff out of the park. As much as it intimidates me, I need to visit Hobby Lobby for some stickers, stencils, and stamps. Not that I want to rely solely on these “embellishments” to journal and illustrate my Bible, but they can enhance what I create organically. And, let’s be honest, I’m not that artistic and I need all the help I can get! I’ll be sharing pictures and thoughts from the workshop later this week, stay tuned!

      You’re absolutely right, I’m really looking forward to diving deeper into Bible journaling because, in turn, I’m diving deeper into God’s Word and that is ALWAYS a great thing!!!!
