Weird confession: I have been thinking 
about going camping all week...

I can't wait for summer weather,
time outside in the beauty of creation,
and little escapes with the hubs!

What are you daydreaming 
about these days?  
PS - camping adventures from 
last year here and here

a good reminder

Just wanted to share a little from my quiet time
 this morning.  It's basic, but a good reminder:

"Be still in My Presence, even though countless 
tasks clamor for your attention.  Nothing is as important
 as spending time with Me.  While you wait in My Presence, 
I do my best work within you: transforming you by 
the renewing of your mind.  If you skimp on this time
 with Me, you may plunge headlong into the wrong activities,
missing the richness of what I have planned for you..."

Do not conform any longer to the pattern
of this world, but be transformed by the renewing 
of your mind.  Then you will be able to test & 
approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing 
and perfect will. (Romans 12:2)

slanted spaces

In our quest to find a house,
we've looked at tons of cute little 
capes with slanted upstairs spaces.

While the diagonal lines are cool,
they typically make it kinda tricky
to use the space well.

 As usual, pinterest to the rescue.
In the last few days, I've seen lots of
cool uses of slanted spaces.  

Currently, my favorites are the closets;
 such practical and helpful solutions.

This bright cheery bathroom is pretty
cool too, though.  I like the idea of turning 
wasted space into something so nice.

 Any brilliant solutions to share?
Who knows what kind of a house 
we'll end up with, but I'm always 
open to suggestions!

oh boy.

Anyone else feel super convicted by this?
I think I have some praying to do...
