This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

I’m thankful for community and the people I live life with. No good ever comes from too much isolation.

Thankful for all the little lessons the girls and I learn from daily. There are lots of fights, misunderstandings, expectations that happen throughout the day, and we have to learn to deal with each other, as well as forgive.

The girls and I have been listening to the heroes of the Reformation podcast “Here We Stand” via Desiring God.

Looking for a denim duster for fall? I really like this vintage one.

So the eczema on my skin was doing better with essential oils and this probiotic moisturizer, but then last week (while in Dallas), it started to act up again. UGH! Now, trying this topical treatment. Within a day, I can already tell it’s working wonders. Hoping and praying this continues to work. Sometimes, my skin is so itchy that I want to claw at it.

I need a reasonably priced yellow child raincoat (size 8-10) for a Halloween costume. Anyone have any suggestions on where to find one?

WOVENFOLK is now offering free shipping to all USA orders over $50.

Made these butternut squash fries this week and it came out delicious.

It’s been a whirlwind week and I’m thankful for new mercies and grace every morning. My heart has been heavy due to the Las Vegas shooting. Another reminder that life is short and you just never know what will happen. Also, Ben’s aunt passed away this week, so he left for Texas on Friday morning. All this has had my mind pondering on the brevity of life, and that with each new day, we are one day closer to death (not in a pessimistic way, but in a urgent realistic way). There’s so much dumb stuff I  get caught up in that when viewed in the light of eternity and death, those things don’t matter, and I’m not redeeming my time wisely. Philippians 1:21 “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” Even through my failing of this verse, I know I can still come to Christ because He is my righteousness.

Also, Harry Potter birthday post coming on Monday. Promise.

See you here on Monday!

    Dr. Kang’s formula is the ONLY thing that has ever made my eczema completely go away. I had it really bad as a kid and it flares up when I’m stressed. I heard about it through Weston-Price. The package is TINY, but don’t be surprised. Just put a tiny bit on and after a few days it should be gone. (I’m not associated with them at all, I’m just super excited to have found something that works after 34 years! 🙂 )

      I’ve always wanted to try that, but on that site it’s always out of stock. I’ve heard really good things about that. This new one I’m trying has really gotten rid of a lot of it. It doesn’t feel dry and itchy anymore.
