I feel like I haven’t posted anything conversational in a long time so I wanted to use today to catch up with you!
Gift Guides – I promise I am work work work work work-ing on these and they will be up by the end of this week/beginning of next week. So far I’ve got gift guides for him, her, home, and pets. As well as a roundup of the best gifts under $50. Is there anything else you guys would like to see? I would love to hear from you!
Dog Mom Jitters – I am picking up Fitz on December 7th in Birmingham, only one week from today! I cannot believe it is already time to go get him. Any advice for a dog mom to be? I am so excited! I got him this collar to wear during the holidays. How cute!
Books – I have really been slacking in the reading department. I am also in desperate need of suggestions, anyone read anything lately they want to recommend?
Netflix – I just started watching Gilmore Girls (from the very beginning,) big mistake…I love it and now all I want to do is lay in bed and watch it. I also really want Rory and Dean to get together! Another awesome show is The Crown. If you liked Downton Abbey, I feel sure you will love this show! It is so fascinating and the props and costumes are unreal, no wonder Netflix spent so much money making it. What are you streaming?
1 Corinthians 13 – My sweet Grandy passed away on Thanksgiving Day last week and the funeral and memorial service were yesterday. I volunteered to read at the service, thinking I would be able to get through it without shedding a tear, well of course, that didn’t happen. I have read that chapter a million times and it has never hit home quite like it did yesterday. In her memory I would like to post it here today:
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. This week has flown by! Have a great day!
