this little light of mine

hi, friends.
it is such a blessing to have you here .
i am so grateful for each and every one of you.

last night, when i was doing dishes, i found an unexpected little blessing.
i have a little dish that sits next to my sink and holds all of my 'extras'.
bracelets, contact stuff, rings, etc....
there was an envelope that had been sitting in that bowl for several weeks and i just assumed that 
it was my son, henry's.
he likes to draw and scribble little notes and pictures, seal them up, and carry them around.
it's pretty cute.
but that's not what i found last night.
take a peek.

about a month ago, my son found a vintage typewriter at the thrift for $3.00.
i couldn't resist his big, brown eyes, so i said, yes.
he was so excited to bring it home and add it to his closet 'office'. 
we didn't know it still typed until weeks later, and it has been a fun treasure to say the least!

last night i found some of the fruits of that find, and of my son's heart.
with my daughters help, they typed out the words to the simple song that blessed me.
i had no idea that he put it there for me, but i opened it just when i was supposed to.
God is so good to give us His treasures just at the right time.

these words reflect what i want my life {and this blog} to be.

a light for Jesus.

my {healthy}hope is in Him, and i pray that He will use me as His vessel.
not to hide my faith under a bushel.
not to allow satan to blow out His glow.
to shine until Jesus comes, because He promised He's coming again!
i want to be a reflection of Him and His love, because I have no light of my own.


so, friends, that is what i strive for.
i pray that this blog will be used to show His love, and to be an encouragement to others.
i have already made so many new friends on this adventure.
people that encourage, bless, and push me to be a better Child, wife, mother, sister, and friend.
it has been a blessing to say the least!

thank you so much for following me.
i am honored that you stopped by and i look forward to meeting lots of new friends!

wanna join me?

let it shine!
let it shine!
let it shine!

have a lovely day, friends.
