Quiet Spirit

It’s taken many years of walking and obeying the Lord, yoga, meditation, prayer, and simplifying every aspect of my life to truly embrace my inner self and achieving a quiet spirit. In fact, I still am a work in progress, but I have come a long way!

While this does please God, I believe that He wants us to achieve this for ourselves and for those around us.

Why hold onto anger, anxiety, stress, and worry when we can achieve peace of mind and help those around us?

Even in the tangible sense, why hold onto clutter when we can live in peace and simplicity and free ourselves from maintaining and drowning in stuff?!

Make an effort to simplify every aspect of your life. You can start small with cleaning out that junk drawer and eliminating social media at night. Every small effort will make a difference in your overall health so that you can be your best and help others!

Valentines Day!

Remember that you are all loved on this day! No matter if you have a significant other or not, love exists all around us.

Most importantly, strive to show love rather than to expect to receive it. That is when the magic happens!

Today my husband and I took the day off of work for a romantic day of getting all of his wisdom teeth retracted! 😂😅 So, if anything, most of you will have a much better day than his! I will be his caregiver and spend the remainder of the day crocheting, watching Netflix, and enjoying the French Macarons that he got me today!

Pause

Before you blurt out your opinion, purchase that item, make that decision…

Pause

Does your opinion help others or hurt others? Do you really need that item? Did you carefully ponder your decision?

Pausing prevents us from impulsive decisions. Pausing can even promote peace. Be mindful in all of your decisions!

Changes!

When we have our plans set out, The Lord usually will show us a new (and approved) thing that changes everything.

Kind of like this blog and my social media. I had started these with the intention to talk about the online crochet shop that I was going to open. However, I suddenly became so booked with special orders! I always put my customers first and make sure that their orders have my full attention. This tossed my shop’s designs to the side.

Unfortunately, I did feel lost and all over the place with my social media. This has caused me to really think about the direction I intend to go in now since I’m still booked with my special orders. And that direction is Simplicity.

Simplifying my life has changed me in so many ways. My simple life still includes my crochet and herbalism! I intend to share so much about the various ways to enjoy a simple life. I pray that you will be inspired!

Oh yeah, the online shop will open this year. The designs will be different from what I had planned. But they will be perfect for The Desert Sparrow! My website and social media will go through some changes. Expect more simplicity, turquoise, and mustard yellow!

Be A Blessing

“If I knew how to crochet, I would make myself….”

This is what I constantly hear when people learn that I know how to crochet. This is followed by a list of accessories that they would hypothetically make for themselves.

I do have many aspirations of what I would like to make myself. But the joy of being able to crochet is that I can bless others with thoughtful gifts!

Before I learned how to crochet, I prayed to The Lord and asked him to help me to learn so that I can bless others. Sure enough, He helped me to quickly learn this craft by myself with YouTube videos!

Now that I make gifts for others, I truly have grasped Genesis 12:2. He has blessed me with this wonderful gift and now I use it to bless others. We are blessed to be a blessing!!!
