"O Judge of the nations, we remember before you with grateful hearts the men and women of our country who in the day of decision ventured much for the liberties we now enjoy. Grant that we may not rest until all the people of this land share the benefits of true freedom and gladly accept its disciplines. This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
Hello friends! I'm happy to announce that fall has finally arrived in the South. I mean, sure, it may still get up to 80 degrees before the day is over, but we're at a nice, crisp 50-something degrees when the days start.
OK, OK, so that was just a couple of days. But still. One can hope.
I've got a fun little freebie for you today: a give thanks printable banner. If you're anything like me, you could use a reminder to pause and practice gratitude throughout your day. I made this banner to hang on our own mantle, and then I thought that I should share the love (and thankfulness) with you as well. Click here to download your free Thanksgiving banner. I hope it inspires an attitude of gratitude in your household :)
I also wanted to give you a tiny little shop update. As of this very moment, I have Dwell mugs in stock, as well as two different sets of verse cards. I'm still waiting on the Dwell Journals. I got word from the printer that my final round of test journals will be ready at the beginning of next week. Once I get those in my hands, I'll be able to get some photos taken and get the shop open by the middle of the month. At least, that's what I'm hoping and praying will happen.
This whole process has been a bit more of an ordeal than I imagined it would be, but now that the launch is (nearly) in sight, I'm finally exhaling a little bit. I'm thankful (see what I did there?) that all the waiting is finally drawing to a close. It's been a mad push to get all the products ready this fall, and I simply can't wait to share them with you. Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be revealing more details about the individual products and I'll also be posting exclusive deals (and maybe even a giveaway or two) for the shop launch. Stay tuned for updates!
Until next time, grace and peace.
