Overflowing Motherhood

(Quick Kindle Deal Alert…this Bible for Kids is now only $0.55!)

Dry. During some seasons of life, I feel so dry. You might know what I’m talking about, mamas. We are pulled in lots of directions with little time for ourselves. Then the dryness comes.

I’ve been told that staying in God’s Word is a remedy for dryness. And it most definitely is. We don’t need to splurge on a spa day or demand time to ourselves in order to be full, or even overflowing. The LORD will fill us up just as we are and just where we are. He is merciful and mighty. He is kind and just. He is everything.

But sometimes I don’t feel better just by reading God’s Word. Perhaps I’m distracted during my reading time. And more often than I care to admit, I don’t put what I’m reading into practice.

While it isn’t rocket science, sometimes I forget that the LORD actually wants for me to act upon the Words I’ve just read. He desires for me to walk in obedience.

When I begin to walk in obedience, my cup is filled. This has been a game changer in my life. Walking in obedience often looks radical to the rest of the world. It even looks radical to cultural Christianity.

This week I am in a not-so-comfortable situation where I will need to hold my tongue. A lot. The LORD was so good to lead me to verses about peacefulness and quietness over the last few days. I knew in my heart that He wanted me to live these verses out. To walk in them. Biting my tongue is not my strong suit when it comes to things of the LORD. It is something I struggle with.

And yet, by the grace of God alone I have kept silent and smiled when being told, ” I never thought you would do this, be that, etc.” It is definitely hard when family members don’t understand your faith. But the LORD is good and will see me through. And tonight, I’m full. Overflowing even!

The same holds true with motherhood, mamas. When we actually walk out the Scriptures the LORD is so good to fill us to overflowing. We weren’t made to feel dry. We were meant to thrive by His grace!

There is a beautiful Mary & Martha piece that is deeply discounted today (5/28/18) only. It reads, “The Joy of the Lord will fill you to Overflowing.” What a beautiful reminder of our walk with the LORD, and our walk as a mother. And at only $12, this pitcher is a wonderful bargain.

I pray that you will soon be overflowing, ladies. Blessings!

Shop Mary & Martha Items Before They Retire Tomorrow

Goodness, am I ever late getting this post out! I really enjoy being a Mary & Martha consultant. Their products are God-honoring, and nearly every piece contains Scripture.

Anyhow, tomorrow Mary & Martha is retiring several of their products to make room for their Spring 2018 line up. These retired items are deeply discounted, and I wanted to share a few of my favorites that are not yet out of stock!

My oldest daughter owns this Glories & Grace Crossbody Bag, and she LOVES it. The pineapple pattern is so cute. It is now only $35.00.

This Grace of the Lord Ceramic Pitcher is now only $19.00. It would look lovely accompanied with sprigs of fresh flowers or cotton this spring.

One of my other favorites is this set of three pie picks for only $6.00. Yes, only $6.00 for all three picks!

Mary & Martha has many other beautiful items as well. I just ordered this Bread Board, which is handcrafted from Indian Mango Wood tonight!

If you have any questions, please just let me know. Remember, this sale ends tomorrow. I hope y’all are having a lovely week with your families.

Thoughts on Thankfulness & Last Chance to Order Your Thanksgiving Tea Towel

Hello, ladies! Today, I was simply overwhelmed with thankfulness for all that the Lord has done for us. I realized a few seeds of discontentment had been growing in my heart lately, and I want to nip that right in the bud! This topic certainly deserves a blog post of it’s own, and I’ll get to that soon. But I’d like to stop for a moment and praise God for all He’s done. So many little things. So many big things, too. I know the Lord has brought us to this home to begin something new, and I’m really excited about it. I’m also so thankful for the opportunity to begin to think about and plan how we will honor Him this winter. How fun!

I’d like to share a quick reminder that Mary & Martha’s Thanksgiving Tea Towel is about to say goodbye. We are down to the last few days of this special offer. This towel reads, “Give Thanks to the Lord, for He is good” Psalm 136:1. I adore the hand lettering, and watercolor pumpkin! This towel would look lovely at your Thanksgiving gathering. Some crafty ladies are even turning this item into wall art by attaching it to a canvas. How adorable!

25% of all orders placed through me at Mary & Martha will be donated to Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church through Sunday. Let’s rally together as part of our church family begins to heal from the devastating shooting last weekend.

I pray that your weekend is lovely, and full of God’s Grace! I definitely plan on savoring every moment. Right now, Mabrey’s asleep and her baby fingers are tangled in my hair. (The wonders of writing blog posts from an iPhone, ha!) I am soaking it up! Being a mom is the greatest.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I would love to connect with you on Facebook. I’d also like to invite you to my Mary & Martha Facebook Page, or to look at beautiful and inspiring Mary & Martha home decor. It is a such a blessing to serve you!

Name Above All Names Banner – Available for a Limited Time

Jesus…Yeshua…this is the name above all names! I’m thrilled to pieces that Mary & Martha is offering this beautiful canvas banner to compliment their Name Above All Names collection.

I wanted to share this with you all, especially since it is only available for a limited time. I ordered mine yesterday, and I’m very excited to display this piece in my home through the winter. Beneath the name of Jesus and wreath, other names of our great Savior are written. This banner measures 12 1/2 by 15 1/2 inches, and is printed on premium canvas right here in the United States.
