Smiles and Stripes

I’m just all smiles again today. I love that feeling!! Remember how I was talking about Colbie’s new CD? You can stream the entire thing for a limited time here on her MySpace. I am LOVING it so far! Particularly “Dream Life, Life.”
I wore this outfit to the drive-in with the boy. Complete with glow-in-the-dark rainbow necklace. That’s right.

Monday Mid Day

It’s Monday already? It’s Mid Day on Monday already?! It’s JULY 11th ALREADY?! It’s 7/11/11 folks. That just tickles me.

Time-warp. Twilight zone. Average intelligence. {inside joke from this weekend, that last one. annoying, i know. sorry
Monday’s Song:

Trust me–happy music can be hard to come by. Which is why I’m excited that Colbie Caillait’s new CD comes out tomorrow! She always has happy music, and I think this one will be especially so because she just fell in love, and I’m sure the music will reflect that. 

Pretty Little Thing:

Those chocolate-cherry scones I baked up? A few of them were tucked into little natural waxed paper bags, and tied with some cute washi tape (my new obsession!!!!!! the cutest ever! click here for more adorable tape than you could ever imagine. and it’s like masking tape, so it peels off easily and is reusable, and won’t take paint off your walls. the jackpot!! ) for some friends :

The cutest new laundry detergent on the block:

Perfect for hand-washing! This is actually just what I need. I usually grab some body wash or shampoo from the shower to hand-wash my delicates in a little tub in the sink. But last week, I noticed one of my body washes left a stain where it landed in a glob on the garment. Not cool at all!

Have a lovely Monday, my lovelies!

Delight in the Lord

Be faithful to enjoy the small things, dears. Be faithful to keeping your eyes open, your heart open, your self open. Keep space within yourself, so that you can be free to admire, to dream, to enjoy—to delight and to be delighted. I’ve been reading a book that said that our opportunity is to delight those around us. Can you imagine: families, workplaces, communities, where the sole purpose of fellowship with each other was to delight one another? How is that possible?! Well, when we delight in the Lord, He fills us to overflowing with joy. He is so faithful to overflow my life with joy when I spend quality time with Him. He allows my heart to be able and willing to delight others when I take delight in Him.
3 Trust in the LORD and do good;
   dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Take delight in the LORD,
   and he will give you the desires of your heart….
 23 The LORD makes firm the steps
   of the one who delights in him
24 though he may stumble, he will not fall,
   for the LORD upholds him with his hand.” 
Psalm 37
We have a joy that is untouchable, because our joy lies in Heaven. This world cannot take it away. Our struggles cannot overpower our joy.  
Our joy has RISEN!
And that, my dear friends, we must share.
