To Do Better
I’m still going through, cleaning my archives. I’ve gone through 2014, 2015, 2016 and am on March 2017. I’ll share some thoughts once I’m done, but my best advice for now is…Don’t wait six years.
I took this meme out of an archived post to share with you. I went through a phase of using way to many memes in my posts. 😍
This morning called for a strong Chemex.
To have the Chemex, I had to tackle something new. Their square filter. I only have one regular filter left, but there’s an entire box of the square ones in the pantry. Why you might ask?
Because I never figured out how to use them.
This goes back to the whole ‘follow the instructions‘ thing. YouTube to the rescue.
The original Chemex filter is folded into a square. I always thought you had to unfold it to make it work. Now, there are some baristas who get really fancy with it, and refold it, but the Chemex is such a simple process, I knew this filter had to be simple as well.
It’s ridiculously simple.
You don’t unfold it at all. You simply separate the layers. Three layers on the spout, and one lays on the rest of the opening.
I’m not sure why I thought it was going to be difficult.
Maybe it’s like a lot of things in life. You don’t know until you know, but when we know better, we get to do better.
A Thrilling Place To Be
A friend found out today that he didn’t get the house he had placed an offer on. He found this house last year, and fell in love with the property. It would be a perfect place to live, and house his business, but God has other plans.
A lot of us prayed fervently about this house.
But, we all prayed in accordance to God’s will.
Sometimes God’s ‘no’, should be our ‘thank you.’
I told my friend, ‘Answered prayer.’ It may not seem like an answered prayer, but it is. The house was perfect, and maybe it all looked that way to us, but something wasn’t right.
We couldn’t see it, but God could.
What my friend did right was clinging to his faith. He was patient with the back and forth about the house, for months. I’m sure he became frustrated with waiting, but God was watching, and I believe my friend won today.
He didn’t get this house, but he’s better equipped for the next one that comes along. I encouraged him to keep looking, and to follow his heart to what he really wants.
I think that seems too big to us.
But, it’s not too big for God. What He has planned for us is more than we can ever imagine, and that’s a thrilling place to be.
A Dreamy Bed
My heart beats a little bit faster for a dreamy bed.
My daughter was home over the weekend, and I wanted to let her catch up on some sleep. As I closed her bedroom door, this quote came to mind, and I remembered this photo on my vision board.
The two combined became a meme.
I’ve been pondering linen for my bed, but have you priced linen sheets? The real ones are not merely a purchase. They’re a freakin’ investment! A linen bed-skirt would be a sweet touch, and keep the dust bunnies out from under the bed.
I have really good sheets on my bed.
I laid this napkin on the sheet this morning before making up the bed. Yes, the sheets feel as good as they look. The quality of mattress, sheets and pillow reflect the quality of sleep.
How you sleep, is how you feel the next day.
The napkin is for a bar, but we use them on our coffee bar. Whoever said you need alcohol to get buzzed has never drank our coffee!
Hey there little mountain mover. If you’re gonna wake and move some mountains you’ll need really good coffee, and a dreamy bed.
Let Me Settle
I cleaned off my desktop, and have only downloaded one new meme. I’m just enjoying the look of it, nice and clean with it’s Windows blue background.
I don’t know who needs this today, but feel that someone does. At first sight, it covered me in peace, so I want to share.
We’re barely into April, and I feel I’ve already let many relationships go. I become more and more particular about who I share my time with. People are showing their true selves quickly. Maybe that’s why it feels I’ve let go of so many.
There is one who doesn’t change.
He’s the same yesterday and today, and He’s not going to let me settle.
A Rested Heart
Taking care of your own heart.
It’s something nobody else can do for you. It’s yours, and can only be cared for by you.
It’s trying to get your attention. What it wants, and what you need, are one in the same.
You just may not realize it yet.
My heart is saying it’s time for rest.
A fresh start with a rested heart.
