11th Edition of That Thing I Do Now

This has been a crazy week around here... lots of shifting taking place in our little home.  With both parents back to school, and our Only starting college next week - we were squeezing in all kinds of lazy... ya know... to make summer last just a little bit longer!

I have to admit, however, the thrill of waking and needing layers for my morning walks made me a little bit giddy! But I am not quite ready to switch over from iced lattes to anything hot!

Fair and Fall is in the air around here this weekend... and I am loving it!

Here are some of the great finds I stumbled upon over this week online... I hope they bless you as they did me!

* This post  by Diana Trautwein where she looks at John 2 and causes you to see Glory in your everyday life!

* This post by Melissa over at Numbering Our Days shares on Galatians 6:10 and encourages us each to "Be intentional. Be the first. Be the trailblazer in heaping. good on others."

* This post by Holley Gerth on why we really DO need you to live your God-Sized Dream - even if it looks a lot like someone elses'!

* This one by my friend Alia Joy on learning to let go and see God in every season!

* This post by the ever encouraging Beth Moore on what Grace is!

* This one by Amber Haines over at on how to be a better friend!

* I considered featuring this one for our video this week, but technically it is both a post and a video so just think of it as a BONUS!  I can't tell you how excited I am about this coming book by Emily Freeman!  Watch and see... live and breathe... the art you were made to create!

* This post by Kate Bratskeir over at The Huffington Post about the Habits of Supremely People!

* This is the post around here that has gotten the most traffic... where I continue to count beyond #1000Gifts and attempt to wrap up a season!

Lastly - the video of the week... I have to thank Jennifer Dukes Lee for sharing this one... as much as I LOVE Sad Cat Diaries - this video from 'zefrank1' is powerful and true in a totally different way!

What will YOU do with your jelly beans?

I hope you have a GREAT weekend, and are able to fill it up with some incredible reads (not to mention the coffee and the community and all the other necessities, too!)


  1. Isn't fall wonderful?? I was so not ready to give up summer (today's the last day!) but now that the weather is cooling in the evenings and the crickets chirping is getting slower, I'm dreaming of all things autumn. God is so great to give us so many blessings to look forward to in each season of our lives.

  2. Amen Mindy! As much as I adore Summer... Fall captured my heart years ago! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. I love your links and this kind of post! Have a great week!! :)

  4. LOVE fall, love the crispness in the air. It makes going outside enjoyable again. I've read most of the links you posted, and I agree, great reads!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I always love to hear your thoughts! Remember to: Speak Life - Be Love - Shine On!
