Stuff I'm Liking

All the Christmas decor has been taken down and put away at last (we were super lazy about getting it done this year). And slowly, pink, red, and purple hearts have made their way out.

Coffee Reads: Mega Post on Complementarianism, 40 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Date Him, Why You Need Sleep, If God Says No, and A Pleasing Aroma.

All Things Rosy: Yankee's Fresh Cut Roses scented candles, Thymes Kimono Rose, and L'Oreal nail polish in Smell the Roses.

Wedding and Photography: Purple and Peach Wedding Inspiration, Erik & Laura, and Steyn & Marli.

Valentine DIY's: Valentines Day in a Box, Felt Envelope Countdown, Chocolate Love Notes, M&M Pinwheels, Love Note Countdown, and Unraveling Letter.

For Laughs: Josh Groban Sings Kanye West Tweets, Tripp Gets Knighted, and Flaws of Biblical Proportions.

Quote Dump...
We don’t get His love by living up to His standards. We find His love in the most broken place of our lives. As we let Him love us there and discover how to love Him in return, we’ll find our lives changing in that relationship. ~Wayne Jacobsen and Dave Coleman
Come boldly, O believer, for despite the whisperings of the enemy and the doubtings of thine own heart, thou art greatly beloved. ~Charles Spurgeon
We become what we love and who we love shapes what we become. If we love things, we become a thing. If we love nothing, we become nothing. Imitation is not a literal mimicking of Christ, rather it means becoming the image of the beloved, an image disclosed through transformation. This means we are to become vessels of God´s compassionate love for others. ~St. Clare of Assisi
The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed. ~Ernest Hemingway
And Some Tunes: Michael Buble, Steve Tyrell, Nikki Yanofsky, and Matt Dusk...
