restoreddaily photos downloadThis morning our pastor talked about how God uses his creations to show us love. It made me think about when I was on a trip to Colorado and we were camping in the mountains. We were away from all worry and distraction. Surrounded by God's creations, I felt clothed in His presence. Now I find myself going back into the wilderness to seek it out again and again and again.

tsgaustin photos downloadWith only a few weeks left in 2017 (🙌), it's a good time for a little reflection. Was it awesome, or just kinda meh? If the year wasn't your favorite, you're not alone. But it's also not too late to make the end of the year amazing. @happymentalwellness reminds us that, "It's never too late to start over. If you weren't happy with yesterday, try something different with today. Don't get stuck, do better." Let's make the most of the last few days of 2017, and roll full steam ahead into an amazing 2018! ✨

abbiegmeyer photos downloadExplaining to your partner how you feel loved is HEALTHY. He/she can't read your mind, and spoiler alert: they are a completely different person with completely different needs than you. —But I think that we have started to misunderstand the meaning of "settling". Knowing *exactly* what we want (and not one thing less!) builds expectations so high that the wall starts to crush our relationships. It's here that we subconsciously turn inwardly to tick off all the items on our list where our "needs" aren't being met. It's in this space that comparison blooms and discontent festers. And what ruminates in our heads will eventually seep out of our mouths. So when the list of wants and needs only continues to grow, we would be wise to take a step back.—Continually pointing our partners back to ourselves is quite possibly one of the most harmful things in marriage because pushing them towards us can ultimately push them away from the Holy Spirit. —The more I nag and continue to fill Cal's ear with my requests, the less clearly he is able to hear from the Holy Spirit. The more I try to mold Cal into MY image, the less he is able to be formed into the Creator's. And the more I voice my discontent over his perceived "failures", the less he is able to focus on his strengths. —My voice should not be the one directing my husband. That job is for the Holy Spirit, and Him alone.—(In a case you missed it, I have a new blog post up talking about the one thing that will destroy *any* relationship and how close it came to damaging our own marriage long term. #linkinprofile)
