Beautiful


I ran across this video the other day. It was so eye opening I decided it must be shared!



Lets be real, everyone at some point or another fights this issue. I know I certainly do.

I didn't share this for sympathy or to be reassured. I simply wanted to remind everyone out there, you are beautiful.

Love Always,
Alix

High Five for Friday


1) Pedicure night with my Legacy Ladies! Thank you to Erin for suggesting the cosmetology school she works at!


2) I have new baby in my life! Sanders Mark was born last week and is doing great. Thats one born two to go!


3) Polka dots and stipes...am I getting too crazy with the patterns?


4) Apparently it was national siblings day at some point this week? Well either way, I am so blessed to have such great siblings.


5) I learned how to make a bow tie this week! We are getting things together for another friends baby shower. I had so much fun making bunting and bow ties with some of my favorite girls.

How was your week? What creative things have you been up to lately? Have a great weekend!!!!

Love Always,

Epiphany



I had an epiphany.

A few weeks ago, I was a a baby shower for my good friend Jenny when another friend from church mentioned that she reads my blog. (Thanks Stephanie!)

All of a sudden it hit me... someone read my blog.

Wow.

Up until this point I had never really considered that anyone else was seeing what I was writing.

I learned a great and valuable lesson from this epiphany. That others are reading what I say and watching what I do through my blog. I can only hope that I show God's grace, love, and compassion through what I say and do.

In James 3:5 we are told that the tongue is like a rudder. A large ship has a very small rudder. However, the rudder directs the whole ship in the way in which it should go. Our tongues do the same thing!

What we say can lift someone up and reflect God's love, unfortunately the opposite is true also. I was quickly reminded that while not many people read this blog, someone who is very important to God may be reading it.

That in my opinion is a big deal.

God can use this blog to lift others up, and I would love nothing more than just that.

So to those of you reading this I hope you find my blog to be encouraging, and full of love. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read what I write.

Love Always,
Alix
