Tis the Season

It’s the hap… happiest season of all!
I love Christmas time.
The joy
the cheer
the love
& most of all,
celebrating the birth of Jesus!
Sure, that may sound cliche
but it’s true.

As much as I love the joy this season brings,
it doesn’t come close to the joy & freedom
you can find from knowing & following
Jesus.

So this month I will have a little extra skip to my step.
Life is good.
And because of the birth of Jesus,
we have hope!

Happy holidays!!

p.s. I will be missing a little more than normal on the blog this month.
Just finishing up some end of the year tasks and
embracing the love & joy around us!

Blessings :: All Things RAD

Happy Monday!! Can you believe the week of Thanksgiving is finally here! This week is easily one of my favorite weeks of the year. This week we all come together to celebrate our blessings and to give thanks ,and then, the Christmas season officially begins!! To start off this week I want to introduce you to one of my sweet friends Rachelle A. Davis, aka RAD {I know, could she have cooler initials?}. Rachelle and I met in our college Bible study a few years ago and last month this pretty lady tied the knot with her beau, Beau. {Keep an eye out for her wedding in Style Me Pretty, her wedding was beyond swoon worthy.} And she recently started a blog to document her & her new hubs adventures together- which I am sure will be filled with beautiful photography, gorgeous calligraphy, great stories, and lots of love.

What a joyful season I have been in! I have so much to be thankful for. A loving husband, a great family, and to just experience this new season has been something that has rocked my world lately. How great is our God?!! Some might say I am obsessed with the holiday season…and that is completely true. I AM 100% obsessed. And proud of it. I had a thought this past week while listening to a popular worship song…the lyrics hit me like a ton of bricks.

“We are His portion”

… Wow…We are! Those four words stir within my heart the exact reasons why the holiday season is so special to me. WE ARE HIS PORTION… and His grace set us free. So for this season in my life, I am thankful to be His portion and to know that the Lord delights in me. He makes me feel like I am His; I am now the righteousness of Christ through Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:21).
