My Abba Father Knows Best

10-Verses-for-an-Anxious-Heart

It’s Friday, March 20th and I’m at work this morning. Just needing a little me-time right now. I tend to get very reflective near the weekend and during Sabbath Day’s rest. I e-mailed my husband this morning and let him know that I would really like to go to all-night prayer this evening and just spend time down there in church. We missed church this past Sunday because we were in Atlanta, Georgia celebrating our 3-Year Wedding Anniversary!

Yesterday evening I was able to pray and lay before the Lord and it felt amazing. Being in the presence, comfort and healing of my Lord’s presence is so amazing. He calms my heart, He rids my of my nerves, He comforts me with his words and He covers me with His love. I found myself saying “Abba, Abba” a lot during prayer, as He is my Daddy God and I love seeking His face. It reminds me of my kids coming up to me saying “Momma, Momma.” We just seek that reassurance and tender love of a parent-figure.

I thank God because He loves me, comforts me, reassures me, and sees me through every time. When I need Him- He is there. When I seek Him- I find Him. When I call upon Him- He answers. Oh glory. I feel my Help.

Thank the Lord for his reassuring grace and His tender touch. I liked this Pin by Simply Clarke. It has all the right verses for calming the soul. Thank You, Jesus my Saviour. <3<3

Remembering the Day!

Remembering the day when my sweetie pie and I said “I Do.” I am so shocked that it was almost 2 years ago!! Aww, I am here printing out the remainder of our wedding portraits for our wedding photo album. I am so late in doing this, but it is going to be so beautiful, and already is. Our photographer took over 580 great photos, and I just finished perusing them all. I smiled so many times I cannot even count!

I texted my sweetie just now about how I missed being a bride, and he sent me a heart telling me that I was the best bride! Then, a kiss telling me that he loves me. Our marriage keeps getting sweeter and sweeter the longer we have been married, the more that we are around eachother and the more time that we spend together. I have thought that for the last month, and I am hopeful that the feeling will last. We will be 2 years strong on March 10, Lord willing.

GREAT Memories!!!!~~~

My Wedding Decor!! (All handmade)

Hello!!!

I have been doing my wedding planning lately!! Today I put my table numbers together. We’re not doing place cards, but I have added the table numbers in for decor. These are all handmade!! I bought some dark brown 12×12 cork boards from Michael’s and layered them (3 layers) into 2×2 blocks. Hot glued them together (in stacks) and punctured the top with the table number pick!

Image

I love them!! Now looking at them, they look like little brownie squares! They already look so perfect next to the mason jar centerpieces; and I haven’t even assembled everything yet!

The top of the picks have my tiffany blue color for the table card numbers, and a black and white damask pattern:

Image

I got these online from David’s Bridal. Of course, mine do not have the silver holder, but instead the tall black sticks I assembled above (top photo). It looks really good! Soo, these table numbers will be placed next to my centerpieces, which are the country mason jars (32oz), with a vanilla candle inside to add a touch of romance. At first I was going to have the candles floating in water like the photo below, but now I’m just going to go ahead and use birdseed instead, so my guests may take the jars home as a keepsake.

Here is where I drew my inspiration for my mason jars:

Image

And, here are MY mason jars that I designed and created below!!

Image

(I will be adding the birdseed–no sunflower seeds in the birdseed–in order for the guests to carry these off when they leave. I love the idea of the “floating” candle, but guests will not be able to tote an opened jar of water off with them, that’ll be messy).

Image

It says “Please feel free to take centerpiece jars after the reception. One per guest, please.”

Ahh!!! I’m CRAZY excited!!!,

Whitney & Daniel
