On Random Accomplishments & Hope


-I have spent the last few weeks organizing & reorganizing the bookshelves in our living room. Not reluctantly, trust me… I love organizing. And reorganizing. So I have thoroughly enjoyed myself each time I emptied all the shelves just to put the same items back on them. Jacob, however, has laughed at me and told me our apartment does not need to look like Pottery Barn. Here’s a sneak peek at my favorite shelf:

Since we used a lot of chalkboards at our wedding, we now have lots around our apartment. I think it’s so fun… we can personalize and change the messages whenever we want!

 – Jacob and I stayed up until almost 2am last night catching up on the first two nights of TheVoice. Tisk, tisk if you want, but we LOVE that show. And we’re determined not to miss out just because we don’t have cable. That’s what Hulu is for! Needless to say, this morning when we both tried/had to wake up early, we concluded we cannot stay up that late anymore. Those days have passed.

– Today’s weather makes me want to sit in a rocking chair on the porch all day long. Since we don’t have a rocking chair or a porch that we don’t share with our neighbors, I’m looking forward to the day we will have both, whenever that day comes.

Thanks to the Johnsons for the sweet Disney Cup, which is perfect for my morning coffee! And, yes, that is the massive amount of coffee currently in our fridge just waiting for a date with the creamer and that cup.

– I FINALLY made the iced coffee I’ve been talking about for weeks! I’ve been using this coffee creamer for a few weeks now…. and let me tell you folks, it has been a glorious morning thanks to this stuff. I actually wanted to get up this morning because I knew I had this treasure waiting for me.

– Can we just take a moment to celebrate the fact that I have been so hungry to be in the Word these past two weeks? What a refreshment and source of renewal each day! Praise God! If you’re struggling to be in the Word today, I encourage and challenge you to do it anyway. Just for 5 minutes… once you get going, I’m sure you’ll stay there longer than you planned:)

So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. (Hebrews 6:17-20)
