What I’ve been up to lately! || A wee bit of randomness :)

Here, there, and everywhere! Seems like that is where I have been the last few weeks. ;)  We have been tremendously blessed with a season[or two;] of busy-ness here! My normal overly frequent random posts have become spontaneously random. ;) But here I am, Christmas music is playing in the background, the house is super quiet[with exception to a little girl who fell asleep at the dinner table and decided midnight was time to wake up ;], and I am happily finding a free moment before midnight to say, “HELLO” to y’all *waves frantically*! :D Life lately has consisted of long work days, spontaneous Hobby Lobby trips, flea market finds[vintage camera bag!!],  cookie box prep, card making, lots of baking, winter gardening, and a few photoshoots! :) Phew, have I mentioned it’s been busy around here?!?! ;) I am reminded all the more of where my strength comes from during these super busy seasons. Psalm 28:7, The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.” How merciful God is in every second of the day and how much I need His strength. He is our strength and at the same time we can only find true rest in the Lord[Matt 11:28]! What hope I have in Christ and how hopeless I would be without Him[Lam 3:24]! God is good! :) “Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.”

So, how about some randomness via the iphone and a few from my camera? It’s time to catch up! As always, hover for descriptions.  :) *waves goodbye*… I obviously need to sleep! ;)

*Side note: anybody has a helpful tip as to how to get my wordpress galleries to align center pretty PLEASE leave a comment and let me know! :)






SP 11.21.14

 “The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
Psalm 147:11

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20
