Or perhaps this post should be titled

How I’m failing at the whole resting thing. 

It’s not something I do well.

I’m driven by my checklist.
I’m slave to the day’s schedule.
And the week, month, and year-long plans as well.

I usually don’t stop to even watch a movie–
which is probably why I don’t remember movies after I see them.

I’m learning that I need to be intentional about resting.
About stopping–or even just slowing.

I know I’ve rambled on this topic before, so you can see that I haven’t figured it out.
I don’t have the 5 steps that make it all magically happen.
and I haven’t found the perfect fix that I can muscle my way through.

Except I do know that I don’t have to clean up my life before bringing my mess before Him.

I know that the filth you see in my house doesn’t hold a candle to the filth in my life or my heart.

I pray that you will see the beauty in this world.
Believe that you can make it more beautiful.


I believe that He is the only one who can use us–use me, use you–to make things beautiful.
But I need to learn to rest in Him.  Truly rest.

I need to live like I believe that He can–and will–carry me.

Threads of Hope Giveaway winner is Chelsey Trogstad.  {email me!}

And for those of you who didn’t win today, I have some exciting details to share!  There are 2 of these gorgeous belts left.  Yes. Two.  They are working hard to get more available to purchase, but two of you can purchase these now!  The photo really doesn’t do them justice.

First to email and claim!  I have seen both of these belts in person – and they are gorgeous!  They are one size fits almost all, as the belt doesn’t have holes, just an easy thread through buckle with a loop to hold up the excess.

[And yes, I still wear mine weekly.]
