Surrounded By Words



You may have noticed that I display lots of prints around my house. I just love them and order from other bloggers and off of Etsy. It's occurred to me, the importance of keeping words around my home all the time, right out in the open where I can see them not only when I wake, but when I sit to rest a spell, or fly through my bedroom with a load of laundry.

I loved each one for it's color, or artwork, or it's beautiful font. Then, as this season of 'embrace' began, I noticed the real value in each one and how much it was contributing to me.  This was unexpected




I had purchased them for their aesthetics, but I now see what a glorious tool they've each been. Consider surrounding yourself with words this year, and stand back and marvel at how it may just change you. Prefer not to spend right now? Make your own. Try googling inspirational sayings and quotes, and be amazed with what you'll find. Open up Picmonkey {free editing y'all!} and choose your own font, then print, and hang wherever with some cool washi tape, a vintage hanger, or an old clipboard and there you have it- inspiring art all your own. 

I've just ordered this one for my ever growing collection and I can't wait to put it up for Valentine's Day.



This one's from Kelli And Vanessa

And this new one on my mantel that I'm so in love with {choose brave shop}




Isn't it just adorable? Consider filling your home with words and be amazed at how it may change you!

P.S. One of my sweet friends just reminded me that you can also get awesome FREE printables over at Ann Voskamp's site. Click here to head on over and see her beauties.

  4. Miss Amy, You just don't know how much God is using you to speak into the life of others ♥ Last night I was listening to the Wednesday videos on Jeanne Oliver's free Becoming class (seriously good stuff to check out if you haven't already) and Shelia Atchley's words were piercing me through the heart as she talked about self-activated changes... you know change for the sake of change? And how when we feel the pull towards this, God really just wants us to be still! So long story short, wipe tears, check email before bed and your post was there.... with the first picture being a little (or maybe not so little!) coincidental reinforcement! So thank you for your efforts in writing what God is putting on your heart! And I love me some words too! :) Happy day to ya girl ♥

  6. I love qirds, uotes, sayings. I also like to have them around me. They help me see, to know, belive, have faith, hnderstand, pause, an so many other things. I miss having words around me all the time. I think it's time to find a way to put these words on the walls of our new house! :)
