Vintage Gwen Chapel-Bless The Lord, Oh My Sword


I love to sing. And that love has been passed to Lil' Hunkie.  I love that it has.  Sometimes he'll just burst out singing songs they do in Children's Church or songs we've done in choir or the worship team.  Sometimes he doesn't quite get the words right. A few weeks ago I caught him doing just that. It was the Matt Redman song 10,000 Reasons and there's a line that says "bless the Lord oh my soul". Well, Lil' Hunkie was singing "bless the Lord oh my sword" and I, without thinking, corrected him, to no avail. But then I did start to think about it.  In Ephesians 6:17, the Bible says that we are to have a sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.  Meaning, when we speak the Word of God it's like a sword....powerful, confident, strong. Those are the kind of words that should be coming out of our mouth.  And with those words we bless the Lord! So when Lil' Hunkie sings "bless the Lord oh my sword" he's really saying "my words which are powerful like a sword will bless the Lord at all times!"  What a revelation out of a babe! So from now on, I'll just smile and join him in blessing the Lord with our swords.

Time to share the beauty boxes and oops! December too!

December

January
That periwinkle color from December was my favorite!! Sadly I haven't used any from January yet but will soon!


December
 Loved everything in this bag except the facial cleanser!


January


Pretty good bags!! The Jouer lip treatment is a repeat which is ok. Don't think I used the first one much so this goes to the gift stash! The eye shadows are both pretty however I already have several options in these shades.  I really wish Ipsy would bust out some fun, daring shades! Love the brush, brushes are always a good thing! And the moisturizer I may or may not try, haven't decided yet.

I'm thinking it might be time for a new subscription.....I've heard very good things about Boxycharm.  Not sure, still thinking it over!! Do you have any you love? Do tell!

Want to sign up for either of these subscriptions? Use the links below!

{Sharing} One Word 2015




A simple new year practice I've been doing the last couple of years is choosing one word to guide me through the year. And for about the second time now, nothing was standing out to me.  Last year was 'more' as in more of Him and less of me.  The Lord has chosen this time to softly drop 'less' in my spirit. The more I questioned, the more it seemed I heard 'less' quietly as ever. You see I feel like I achieved more of Him but did I really get rid of less of me? Less worry, less feeling like I fail as a mom, as a wife? Not really. So I'm thinking that as I work on less in 2015, the result will be that I didn't have to work at more of Him at all, it will just be so. 
I truly believe 2015 is going to be a big year. And I've got to be in tune so I don't miss a thing!!
How about you?

Pineapple Mason Jar Gift With Tag



Hey lovelies!!! Here's my Pineapple Mason Jar gift idea in case you missed it a couple of weeks ago at Tatertots & Jello! This was so easy to do and required no fancy craft machines!!
Lovin' the pineapple right now, such a great symbol of welcome, hospitality, and prosperity. You could totally fill this with what ever you want....dried pineapple might be fun! Chocolate is always a hit in my books!



The quilted mason jars reminded me of a pineapple.  So I took some gold glitter paint and painted on some dots at each 'intersection'.  Here's a closer look....


To make the pineapple leaves I took the top part of this template and printed it out and traced onto green glitter card stock adding about 1/2 tab at the bottom.  I cut 4 for each jar so I could glue 2 together to have glitter on all sides. Then I traced the lid and cut out a green circle.  Using an Xacto knife I cut slits in center of the circle.  Then I cut a slit in the bottom up to the center of one leaf and then from the top down on the other leaf.  Slid them together and pulled tabs through the circle and folded back.

I gingerly pulled the leaves through the lid ring and wallah....a pineapple top! 
The finishing touch is a 'Welcome 2015' tag.  Add a gold wrapped candy and done!


Here's the tag....





Here's to a great 2015!
Happy Weekend lovelies!
