your vision will become clear only when you can look into your heart. who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. – carl jung

good morning ya’ll! so happy you stopped in. i have been smiling all morning thinking of you..really!
remember this home tour?
i didn’t want to go there because i knew i would have to co-exist with old memories.i wanted to go because i told God to lead me on the road to Somewhere
and block any road to Nowhere and that i didn’t want to go anywhere that He didn’t go with me.
hey there:) we’ve had some questions on our home..how we have been settling in so i thought i’d take a little time and share some bits and pieces
we recently spent some meaningful time sitting down and purposefully asking ourselves the 5 w’s and h on how we wanted our home to feel.
we moved in and then hit the ground running with work, surgery and well…life. time flew and four months later we were in an empty home!
we moved in with not much furniture so the main living area was bare. we have slowly been acquiring some little things but the big pieces eluded us.
we finally got a couch from ikea and a chair from home goods. no more kiddo’s and me piling on my bed watching tv….boo!
i am so grateful that God led us to this home and that i faced the fear and took the risk and called on it!!
I work hard at being intentionally present in living my life these days
the sweet little feminine table we scoured for WEEKS for..we found it in our new favorite little shop.
i added a fun pair of pillowcases for spring/summer..i love the pops of coral and mustard …they make me feel happy HAPPY in my bedroom. i was pleased with their quality. and look at that cute tag and buttons!!
i am painting and distressing a dresser that i will replace the little grey table. still waiting for the perfect little lamp to find me
i am working on a new Grace’s prayer sign for her room. i wrote it for her in a post and nikki turned it into a sign.
here is our exodus home pinterest board. i really do use it for ideas and inspiration
what do you use for inspiration? are you a slow and steady decorator or are you a whole room at a time kinda girl? in my dreams i am a whole room
now go out there and live courageously ok?…xo
i really do use it for inspiration and ideas
i don’t want to forfeit the miracle
it is more than a sign business friends
don’t get me wrong...it is the business that God is using to help on the road out and i am overwhelmed with gratefulness
i have been at the end of my rope…for a very long time
jan silvious once said that letting go is the hardest challenge you face because it requires you to lay down every weapon, hook, rope, cord, or device you have for maintaining control…when you let go you determine to trust that God himself will faithfully handle whatever situation your letting go creates – from foolproofing your life
the YES i have been eluding to is my first ever HOUSE!! all on my own
because it is something that only God could have done.
so for years i agonized over all of THIS…finances are just a slice of the pie of course but it explains the no resources to have a home
however – God has been watching over His word to perform it…you know He does that right?
i feel so loved by Him…so SEEN
i have no words for it..but face on the ground weeping..thanking Him
walking after emptiness they became empty?
traveled down roads like this much?
i am seeing rivers being made in the desert
i see these years being recycled for our good and God’s glory
He is showing me that His power really is limitless
this is a God sized dream that scares me half to death–but shouldn’t it? maybe this means i am on the right road for once?
oh abba…my God, You are bringing us home to a land you have prepared for me – You have laid out this gift before me
