“How fun!” I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week. Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:
My friend, Beth, at Simply Beth started a weekly series using the book, Love Dare. I have found it challenging. This week was about being kind. Let me tell you, it pierced my heart because I have been a “bit” crabby with Ed lately. I know you are all shaking your heads and saying, “What is wrong with that woman?” I know! See why I was convicted? It’s a good, honest, challenging series. It’s also connected to Beth’s weekly link-up party.
Another blogging friend, Lisa, from Four Simply Living, just opened her very own Etsy shop. I am so thrilled for her! Her blog is filled with gorgeous photography and I know that her shop will be very successful!
Don’t forget to connect with us on social media and by signing up for our newsletter. (see the sidebar) There are often coupons for our own Etsy shop in the newsletters that don’t show up anywhere else! 😉
What we are eating next week:
- Saturday Hot dogs, pierogis, cut up raw vegetables
- Sunday Ravioli, sauce, salad, rolls
- Monday Grilled chicken, boiled potatoes, carrots
- Tuesday Salmon, broccoli, baked sweet potatoes
- Wednesday Pizza, cut up raw vegetables
- Thursday Pancakes, sausage, blueberries

Baking this weekend: Strawberry and cream mini-muffins

Hello, everyone! This week, I wanted to make a nice high-resolution download/ printable for Elizabeth’s readers. She took some great pictures and this prayer just popped into my mind, so I combined them. Click the image above (or here) to download a PDF file with three variations of this prayer. Each page is 8″x10″ at 300 dpi. Feel free to print any or all of them for your own use. I know I need a reminder like this daily!
Printing at 100% will give you a nice 8×10 ready to frame. You could even enlarge these up to 200%. The images are high-res and the type will remain crisp. Any local printer or office supply store like Staples can print this out for you if you’d like, just make sure you tell them which one you want as the file contains all three pages. We only respectfully ask that you don’t take this file and attempt to sell it. It is our gift to you, the Beauty Observed reader. WE APPRECIATE YOU!

Have a great weekend! Remember Philippians 4:8. “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Thank you so much, Elizabeth, for mentioning my series. What a nice surprise to see. It really is a challenging book. I was spending time on the next chapter this morning and oh my… love is not selfish! Talk about challenging and convicting.
I really do just love you and your husband. I know I say this often but it is so evident how he supports you in this passion and I think that is WAY cool. I really would like to hang more scripture references in my home and need to get on taking advantage of some of your free printables. Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Much love.
We love pierogies! Linked up my Easy Gluten Free Doughnut Holes. Thanks for hosting!
I love Beth and her insight. The Love Dare is a great book. I bought it when I did not have a significant other and now that I’m engaged maybe I should dust it off. And thank you Eddie for the beautiful images. 🙂
Totally forgot to link up… LOL! Fhew what a week. Thank you friend for the shout out. You so did not have to do that, but my heart is just overflowing with your encouragement 🙂
