Tin Cans

My mom gave me one of these with flowers in it a while ago and I just adore the way they look, with all sorts of things in them but especially a pop of colorful flowers. I currently have my can sitting on my nightstand boasting a vibrant red bouquet (of fake ones). Aren't they just the cutest? And so easy to get! Just save that can of green beans and bam! You've got a darling way to serve a mutitude of decor and storage purposes.

Cafe

Wouldn't you love to be sitting on this street, with these quiet views, enjoying conversation wiht your better half, or enjoying a good book? Sometimes, you just want to be somewhere else. I wouldn't mind being right here.

Monday Motivation

One day we will have this.
We will look on back on right now and be glad that God put this dream into our hearts. It is exactly what we are meant to be doing. And will only lead to our being able to accomplish bigger, and better things.

Fresh cut flowers and a nice, cold glass of wine. 
Looks like a good way to start off the week to me.

Sunday Sermon

This morning, Duke and I settled in with breakfast and a cup of coffee to watch "church" (a recorded sermon of Joel Osteens). I usually get a feeling that I need to hear Gods word and today was one of those days. All day yesterday, I felt blue. For no particular reason. I unfortunately allowed it to have an effect on those around me, which, while it was easier than mustering up the strength to be nice, made me feel even worse. When today's sermon was about being good to people, I teared up. I knew what I did yesterday was not what God would have liked to see. I have since asked for forgiveness and the strength to be good to people at every opportunity.
God did not create us to be selfish takers. We are meant to be givers. This is why so many of us are unhappy- we feel good when we give to others, not when we focus on what we don't have. By being a blessing to someone else, you sow the seed to be given a blessing from God. By not taking the chance to be good to people, however small, we are missing the opportunity for our own miracles and breakthroughs to come to pass. Be a blessing and a blessing will be bestowed upon you. It's simple, really. And makes sense. Did letting my attitude get the best of me yesterday make me feel better? No. I actually felt so bad that I had a dream about it so that it has been with me into today. Being good to people feels so much better and will stay with you for just as long, usually longer. It is not only beneficial to those your are being good to, but also yourself.
