No Need For The Sunday Paper



Happy Sunday! There are a lot of links this week, hope you can sit down with a cup of coffe and enjoy them as much as I did!

Home links:

I am on a homemaking mission: Create a peaceful home environment that is both organized and effiecent, warm and fun. I have kinda lost my mojo lately, and I looking to get it back. To that end here are two links for routines and home management:

Simple Mom: 20 Tips on Keeping a Routine With Kids.

Passionate Homemaking: Building a Home Planning Notebook

Crafty links:

A Forest Frolic made an incredible shabby chic banner...seriously so gorgeous. And she sells them in her shop! I think this project would be a great add to the glitter craft project round up!

Katie's Nesting Spot (photo credit above): This accordion fold mini scrapbook with  pockets is so adorable. Katie is so talented!

Dollar Store Crafts features an inexpensive, yet elegant tabletop wine glass votives. These look so simple and fun to make!

Katherine Marie Photography: Friends, there isn't a post she has that I don't drool over. Her "Green Eggs and Ham" crafts and photos are no exception. simply wonderful.

As always, a little encouragement from The Good Book:

1 John 4:8

God is love.

As Michael Moudman puts it, "God does not merely love; He is love itself. Everything God does flows from His love. But it is important to remember that God’s love is not a sappy, sentimental love such as we often hear portrayed. God loves because that is His nature and the expression of His being. He loves the unlovable and the unlovely (us!), not because we deserve to be loved, but because it is His nature to do so, and He must be true to His nature and character."

The greek word for love used here in this verse is agape. The essence of this agape love is self-sacrifice. To read more, be sure to check out this short article, also by Mr. Moudman titled "What is agape love?"
