happy Friday, friends! i haven’t been this excited about Friday since…well, last Friday! here’s the list of my favoritest things from the week::
favorite blog post: In which we get this part of the Incarnation by the superbly talented Sarah Bessey.
May we recognise the miracle of the Incarnation, not in spite of the mess, but because of the very humanness of it.
favorite tweet: by @donaldmiller
Only speak that which makes the world a better place.
favorite photo: pretty much anything from Buzzfeed’s 21 Pictures That Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity. (so. much. awesomeness.)
favorite song: okay, so i really tried to not like Taylor Swift’s new song, but it’s just so darn catchy! (how does she do it?!) give “I Knew You Were Trouble” a listen; it’s impossible to not start singing along!
favorite scripture: Isaiah 49: 14 – 16. sometimes, in the midst of our humanity, our problems, our mess, it’s easy to feel like God is absent. like He somehow has forgotten us. this passage is my reminder that i am always, always on His mind.
favorite purchase: a Glade Nutcracker Crunch jar candle i picked up at Target. it smells like Christmas and happiness and everything that is good in the world!
that’s it from me this Friday! and bring your lovely self back here on Monday to check out a fun, happy-birthday-to-me blog post that i’ve been working on! xo
