Trust. My Word for The Year.

Trust. That is my word for this year, did it come all wrapped up December 31st in a beautiful little package... nope it came last week. I was walking from the kitchen to the bedroom, and all I kept hearing was  "trust"... I looked down at my wrist and I saw the word trust being written on my inner wrist. Weird right? Of course my mind was seeing this being written, it wasn't actually happening. But I do believe that sometimes God has to shake us up a little to show us to trust, sometimes He asks us to believe, and more times that not, it is not easy. It is hard. I am a competent person, I'm pretty good at getting stuff done, especially when I'm in control. But what about when I am not in control? What about when I have to trust others on my behalf to make decisions that impact me? Take for example our government at the moment... Our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, as cute as he is, he is doing a job on our economy... I worry about things like mortgage rates skyrocketing, losing the value in our home... I know, totally out of my control, I'm trusting him to do what is right for our country, his decisions affect us... I'm concerned... and yet... Trust is my word. Don't trust people, don't trust your government but Trust Me. Me... your heavenly Father who loves you more than anything... Trust me.

So here I go, shifting under the physical pressures of anxiety, slipping out the side door, Anxiety, you can stay here... I'm headed over there... under that palm tree... trusting that God's Got This... and I'm just along for the ride.

How am I doing with this so far? Well... I had a meltdown this morning on FaceTime with my Mom... but my Mom... for the past 38 almost 39 years, has been a voice of reason in my life, my ballast if you will... she has figuratively talked me off of many ledges... We talked, we prayed, I felt better. I'm not going to say the anxiety is gone, and I'm not going to say Trusting is easy. It is NOT. But it IS what I am going to do. It will be a daily decision, an hourly decision, might even be moment my moment...  and I'm going to need a reminder, so I created one. One that I can see, I'm going to put it as my screensaver, my desktop, and probably print it out 800 times over the course of this year... but I am going to do it...


How about you, how are you with trust, can you Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and not lean on your own understanding? As competent and qualified as you are... can you trust when you are not in control?

10 Punny but not too Cheesy Valentine's Prints

LostBumblebee ©2017 10 Punny but not too cheesy Valentine's Prints, www.lostbumblebee.net

Punny, Funny, Cutsy, Cheesy, but not too cheesy, ok, maybe a little cheesy, Valentine's Day Prints for you to share with your sweetie!

Valentine's Day, the day we all love to hate, or hate to love? I guess it depends on a few things, if you have a boyfriend or girlfriend-  we all LOVE valentine's day!  If you are single- we all HATE valentine's Day! And if you are married it could go either way.  For us?  I generally get the hubby a Valentine's day card, and give it to him in the first thing in the morning so he has all day to get his tail to a store and grab a little something, chocolate is a great choice... and I'm usually pretty good with this set up, however- every once in a while I go psycho and it really ruins our fine balance.

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? How do you celebrate? Are you planning a sweet night in with the significant other? a girls night out to celebrate singleness and independence? a big night out?

Share the love,
M.

Don't!

Don't die with the music still inside.
Don't leave this world not sharing your passion.
Don't let another day slip by without taking a teeny tiny minuscule little step towards sharing your heart.

Do share, the world needs what you have to say.
Do be courageous for just 10 seconds while you hit send, post, say thank you, give someone your phone number, respond to a request, say yes...

All it takes is that 10 seconds of courage to set that thing free that you have been wanting to share...
Today I encourage you to set it free... be really courageous for those 10 seconds... share your heart, share your art, share your voice and share the love.

What are you working on today? What have you been dreaming of? What are some of your hopes dreams and goals?

Share the love,
M.

I'm getting ready to work on a new post and I'd love to hear some of your questions for Duy and I. Is there anything about us that you'd like to know, any fertility questions, gratitude questions, healing questions, inspiration questions, art questions you want to ask? If you'd like, ask them in the comments, and if you are a little more shy, use the link off to the side to ask them via email... I'm curious to know what you want to hear!

Tết Time, oh la la it's Spring!

Today is the first day of the Tết festival here in Vietnam, it is a first for us. It's Spring time!

Tết Nguyên Đán, which is Sino-Vietnamese for "Feast of the First Morning of the First Day". Tết celebrates the arrival of spring based on the Vietnamese calendar, which usually has the date falling in January or February. (Thanks wikipedia)

The great part of this New Year and Spring festival here is that I feel like I missed new year! I feel like I'm behind in all my personal new years traditions- But it's officially a New New Year on January 28th!

And with Tet is full swing here, and a New New Year for me, and Spring in the air, I wanted to share this New Year wish with you...


Share the love,

M.

Sun's Up, MUGS UP!

And the first order of business today is coffee... isn't it always? We've got company visiting for the first time here in Vietnam, and it is awesome, so much do to, so much I haven't done- and someone to do it with. But as always, first order of business is a big mug full of Kicking Horse Coffee... Thank goodness for family and friends who understand just how much I love the stuff- and for sending it to me, despite the cost - not sure I can every say thank you enough, so this one's for you...
Sun's Up, MUGS UP! at ease...


Cheerio to an awesome day, starting the right way :)
What's in your mug?
Share the love,
M.

(Ps. I don't get paid to share Kicking Horse with you, it's just my absolute favourite!)
