When we launched Heirloom Magazine, I had no idea my time would become so precious. For months, I had been diligently at work on countless editorial projects, client’s weddings and the creation of Heirloom. Little did I know the ball would soon start rolling faster than I knew what do to with. The doors have continuously flung open, one after the other, with opportunities I’ve jumped at with full force and gratitude; things I’ve only dreamed of for years.
“Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in him your labor is not in vain.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15:58
God’s provision and guidance is overwhelming and it is during this time that I’ve felt like never before, so deeply humbled by his steadfast love of me. I’ve seen clearly, more than ever, my desire to serve Him and only Him.
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” ~ Colossians 3:17
Where I once worried about reputation, image and belonging, I now feel accepted, solely as I am- beautifully imperfect but complete in Him. Where I used to compare, contrast and “research,” I now live with blinders to all but Him. Each day is His and I want nothing more than to be used. May my hands, feet and actions be a vessel of His strength, courage, compassion, love, protection, wisdom and grace. I pray that each day would align with His will for my life becuase I know, that in Him, life will be more beautiful than I could possibly image. He will take me places I can only go by His lead! Oh how amazing the reality of His will.
“In the midst of life’s complexities the answer is always simple. It all comes back to His gift of immeasurable love.”
So excuse my resent silence here, as I honoured God with the down time I was blessed with. Those precious moments were spent glorifying Him, studying His word and celebrating the beauty of this incredible life I’ve been blessed with……
My husband who means more to me than life itself – my pooch Guinness who is truly my baby, bringing more joy to each day than I could possibly express-my family so dear to me, who deserves my undivided attention and frequent visits- my friends who walk with me, love the raw and real me, eternally supportive through every up and down- enjoying my home and backyard for all its worth! These moments are life set on fire!
