you don’t know you’re beautiful

I am a little bit ashamed to steal lyrics from a one direction song for the title of this post, but they are too fitting not to be used! this girl, sheree, is so so sweet, down-to-earth, selfless, and tender-hearted!! she does not even realize how beautiful she is. I love her humble heart but I also wish she could see herself the way others see her- truly beautiful.

here are just two of the photos. there will be more to come! she’s gorgeous, am I right?!?!?!

beautiful in its time

As it says in Ecclesiastes 3:11, God has made everything beautiful in its time. As fall is wrapping up, I am reminded that God’s timing really is the best timing. He transforms the green leaves into shades of red and orange and gold in HIS timing. He strips the trees of these beautiful leaves in HIS timing. He gives us 75 degree days in HIS timing. He gives us 35 degree days in HIS timing. He gives to His people and He takes away from His people in HIS timing. His timing is perfect!! Oh, and I couldn’t help but snap a few of my beautiful sisters. Too bad Grace couldn’t be there for the mini photo sesh

yet to come

Look at the nations and watch–and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. ~Habakkuk 1:5

Greater things have yet to come

And greater things are still to be done in this city
