Discover New Beauty Everyday: Dinkey Creek

Life is full of ugly things, so I have decided that I am going to find something new beautiful everyday. 

I have driven Dinkey Creek Rd several times, but today we found a new meadow and at just the right time.  There is nothing like a beautiful sunset with pine trees from the sierras in the distance. 

Discover the beauty......

Plan with Me | Erin Condren Life Planner: Week 10/12/15-10/18/15

As many of you know, I am lost without my planner.  As a new series, I will be sharing my planner and all the products I use to plan my week.  There are some great Etsy shops with stickers to make your planning cheerful and organized.

Right now I am using an Erin Condren Life Planner.  It is not the most economical of choice, but I love the ease of use and quality.   On the Erin Condren website they have many choices and you can easily find one to fit your budget.

I love fall, so I am continuing this week with fall color themes.  I love adding purple and sage green to orange and yellow.  So pretty!

Here are the shops I used:

• Quote Sticker: CommandCenter
• Editable Check List Sticker: Little Blue Garden
• Heart Check List Sticker: Little Blue Garden
•Editable Headers:  Little Blue Garden
• Health Tracker Stickers: Lemon Wish Designs
•Owl Church Sticker: AnchorLimeDesigns
• Stickers & Embellishments: NotionsfromNonny 
•Planner Band:  RainbowsandPixieDust

I love my planner to be cute, but it must be functional.  It is tool that I use to keep my days organized and productive.

Thank you for stopping by!

For the Love of Starbucks! | DIY Starbucks Bookmarks

Recently I went into Starbucks for a gift card.  Mixed with the normal gift cards were beautiful leaves with metallic gold.  They were perfect!! As I looked through them, I noticed that there was four different colors.  Of course I had to have them!!

There was a few different projects I thought I could use them for.  But none that I would be able to enjoy their prettiness.   As I thought I looked down and noticed my bible and a bookmark that was made for me was lying next to it.  That is what I'll do! I will make them into bookmarks.  Then I can enjoy them everyday!

With the hole on the end, a tassel would attach perfectly.  I used gold metallic string that I had to make the tassels.  They were very easy to make and the bookmarks were done in no time!

I love how they turned out!!  If you are not into Starbucks, you can easily cover the small Starbucks symbol.  They will still be very nice.

And this is how it looked in my journaling bible......

A nice accent to my bible.  Love it!!

Bible Journaling Nehemiah 8:10 | I Choose Joy

Proverbs 8:10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

I used the new line from We R Memory Keepers Wildflower that is in my shop.  Love the colors in this line.  There is lots of gold and navy!

The joy of the Lord is our strength! I lean on the promises of the word of God....I choose JOY!

Bible Journaling Proverbs 31:30 | Feareth the Lord

Proverbs 31:30  Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

I journaled this page with the Dear Lizzy Serendipity line from my Etsy Shop.  The beautiful colors and delicate flowers reminded of the woman mentioned in the verse. 

More than anything, I want to be known as a God fearing woman.  A woman that fears the Lord does not fear the future......uses wisdom.....and lives not for just herself, but for others.

Bible Journaling | 2 Corinthians 12:9 | His Strength is Perfect!

1 Corinthians 12:9: And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

On this day, during my devotion, I was reminded of the CeCe Winan song "His Strength is Perfect." It is beautiful song that reminds us that when we are discouraged and cannot carry the load any longer, his strength is perfect.  I pray that the power of Christ rests upon everyone reading this.  He will carry you through.


 " His strength is perfect when our strength is gone
He'll carry us when we can't carry on
Raised in His power, the weak becomes strong
His strength is perfect, His strength is perfect."
Song: Cece Winan
