The Joy of The Lord

What makes you happy?

For me, it’s lots of little things. Like the way the sun streams gracefully through the window in the spring. And how bees knock up against your window and then fly away again, reminding you summer is on the way. And the taste of soft-serve ice cream from an ice cream truck somewhere along the British coastline. It’s how my puppy’s face looks all smushed up when he wakes up from a nap. It’s how my cousins and I put frozen yoghurt on our noses in the summer, just because. It’s walking into a coffee shop and smelling the coffee beans. It’s eating lunch every day with my friends and all their different smiles and laughs.

Smoothie Bowl Dump

Hey, hello, sweet friends! How are you doing today! I can’t believe it’s still only Wednesday, how is your week going?

Here in London, spring has definitely arrived- it’s a lot milder outside and the cherry trees are just beginning to blossom! With the change in weather has come a change in other things too- fewer winter clothes, more outdoor activities and different foods- most namely breakfast! The winter just seemed a little too cold for smoothies and refrigerated food first thing in the morning, but now spring is here smoothie bowls are back on the table (literally)!

Follow pt. 2

Simon Peter. Andrew. James. John. Philip. Bartholomew. Thomas. Matthew. James. Thaddeus. Simon. Matthias. 12 ordinary men who gave up their lives; their homes; their everyday-normal at another man’s call to ‘come follow me’. 12 boring, normal, not-extra-special, sinful men who were called to be the closest earthly friends of the extraordinary Jesus Christ.

Weekly Inspo + Art Dump

Hey there, sweet friend! How are you doing today? How has your week gotten off to a start?

Last week I had the week off school and it’s never very fun going back to school after a break, but here we are! One upside to the misery that is school is the weather- it’s been really lovely (especially for February) the past few days! The sun has been out and I’ve been outside without a coat or jacket plenty of times! Last Sunday I went for a walk with my dad and my pup- the sun was shining and little purple and white flowers were pushing their way out of the ground under the trees- spring is most definitely on the way, and my heart leaps with that knowledge!

Follow pt. 1

Have you ever thought about how many people you follow?

The dictionary has lots of definitions for the word ‘follow’. It can mean to trace the movement or direction of something/someone. It can mean to conform to, or to act according to someone’s directions. It can mean to pay close attention to. But the definition I like most is that it can mean to copy what something/someone does.

2021 Bucket List

2021 is going to be a year I won’t forget. I decided that right at the beginning of January when I picked out my word for the year and set myself some goals to work towards. 2020 might not have been quite the year which we had expected, and I let that throw me off. However, I decided I’m going to make this year better.

Bible Study Resources: A Haul

Hello there, sweet friends! It’s finally Sunday… this week has felt so long! The weather in England has been a little less cold this week which has been so lovely, although that said, it was chucking it down with rain when I woke up yesterday morning! At least we’re headed towards spring (and then summer) now!

Today I’ve got a super fun little post for y’all… something I’ve been wanting to do for a while! I recently invested in a bunch of new Bible study resources (and I got a new Bible with big margins for Christmas) so I thought it would be super fun to share my Bible journaling process and do a lil’ haul of the stationary I use, just for fun!

Home School and Lockdown: My Daily Routine

We’re into week four (or is it five now?) of home school/ lockdown here in the UK, so life is beginning to feel somewhat ‘normal’ again- at least to the degree that I’m used to this by now. Of course, lockdown can never feel normal. Not going to school can never feel normal. Not seeing friends every day can never feel normal. But you get into a rhythm, and you keep going.
