Falling In Love...

So... I have recently fallen in love, all over again, with Jesus.  I love that no matter how deep you go inside His heart, into the depths of intimacy, in Truth... Deeper is always the next place you go. And deeper, & deeper, & deeper.  I've never experienced that more in my life than the season I am in right now.  I have found though, that it's come out of a place of needing Him, & my realizing I need Him more than any other time in my life.  It's crazy how good and loving He is.  I feel like the past couple months I have began to experience more sides of Him than I thought I ever would.  The fighting side, the loving side, the jealous side, the true side, the compassionate side, the hurting side.  I have always found that He really does work all things for the good of those who love Him.  Like I said, He's amazing & I'm completely in love.  I hope you find this encouraging, & that you know how much He loves you and fights for your heart and for it to be completely whole & alive in Christ!!

So we went on two dates.  One was to a park and I was able to sit in some shade & just journal our hearts out.
And the second was at another park, under big! trees and I just read His word & listened to His voice.

Head Warmer!


Hooray it's Thursday & I finished crocheting my first head band :)  It was going to be a scarf, then I quickly realized I was not going to have nearly enough yarn to do that.  So I turned it into a headband!  I used Charisma Yarn (which can be found at Michaels) & did a Double Crochet for the whole thing and then sewed on two buttons to connect it so it's easy to take on and off!

One of those "Family Days"...

Blast!! I missed Tuesday & I have no good excuse except I just got busy, I'm sure you know how that is though.  I hope your day was amazing & that this day just continues to get better for you.

Have you ever had one of those family days?  Nothing is going wrong, but you just feel the urge deep within your heart to be with your family... The ones who have been around you your whole life... Who know you... Who know how to make you laugh and you know how to do the same for them.  That's how I'm feeling today.  I'd love to just be around them, kick back on the couches & chairs, sip on our cups of coffee (which are always in hand), and just laugh.  Or go on the back porch and listen to the birds make their music while the ones around you create their own.  Or have a dance party (which I always love)!
Anyways, I thought since I was having one of those days, I'd introduce you to my beautiful family.  This is a pretty dated picture of all of us, but it's the last one we've taken with just us.  I get to go home and visit them for a few months here soon and I'll make sure to update that picture for you.  So meet The Steins:

Here we have: mom and dad, 4 amazing brothers, 3 sisters-in-law (but really just true sisters), 3 nephews & 4 nieces (one not photographed).  These people mean more to me than words could ever say.  Through thick & thin they have been my best friends & I really cannot imagine going through any of the stuff I have without them.  They are some of the most cheesy, funny, full of love, down to earth, pure-hearted & in love with Jesus people I know.
Until we are able to take a new picture, you should check out their own amazing blogs.  They have everything from writings to art to music to clothing... They are super creative & I think you will be super glad you checked it out!

Have a blessed Wednesday & remember to Love!
