Love On Others. Free Instagram Image.

I believe we are called to love on others. This often means dying to ourselves and our own desires. Valentine's Day is approaching, and I believe the holiday is a great reminder to choose to put others before yourself! Right click and save the image below to use on your Instagram feed!

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

I Corinthians 14:4-7

Have a wonderful day!

Thanksgiving Freebies

I can't believe Thanksgiving is two weeks away! This holiday is a good reminder for me to have a heart check! I find it so easy to get caught up in the stresses of life and worrying about what we need or don't have. So I decided to make a pretty list and write out for myself the many reasons I have to rejoice and be thankful! Then I thought, why not share the template with others! So today is a little freebie package! 

The first item I created was a list for me to write down/brainstorm what I'm thankful for. You can see the start of my own list. I figured I could hang it on my fridge to remind me every day.

Then I started thinking it would be fun to have little cards at our Thanksgiving meal where everyone can write a little something to be thankful for. Then you can save them for year to year or hang them up for a little while!

Lastly, I was having a good time designing and added a little table name card. What is better than coordinating paper goods? :) So feel free to print the sheet out, trim the name cards, and fold in half!

Each downloadable file is created for an 8.5x11 sheet of paper. Print on cardstock paper and trim around the light grey lines. For the name cards, fold them in half where you see a light grey line. Enjoy!
