been thinking more and more about truth. i am so hungry for it. ABSOLUTE TRUTH. i believe the Word of God is true. sometimes i am just overwhelmed by the different interpretations. opposing opinions. different denominations and methods and.....truths.
it's not about who is right or wrong, but rather about what pleases God.
and it's about knowing why i believe what i believe.
i don't want to be ignorant.
i don't want a fickle faith. i don't serve a grey area God.
Lord, i just want YOUR truth.
iv been confronted with grey areas a few times this year.
i love how when I ask God questions He never rebukes me or turns away from me but rather He says 'Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe. Come to me, you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."'
i know He will show me His truth. and i will keep searching. holding onto His love that saved me.
i believe its good to ask questions. with a humble and sincere heart. while always knowing that God is God. and there are some things we will just never grasp. having a peace that I am made righteous by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
i hope we all find what we are looking for. treasure.

since i can remember i have been obsessed. iv hoarded and recycled and hoarded and recycled. so i thought id share some of my favorite publications over the next few posts.
THE FACE. (love the 90's.)
i was mesmerized with this magazine as a teenager and devoured the only three original copies i could get my hands on (the issue with ashton kutcher, the one with orlando bloom and the zombie issue).
the face opened up a new world of fashion, music, art and british street culture...and even though i wasn't cool enough to understand any of it, i loved it all. the (then) unusual compositions. the bizarre photography and concepts that were always so alluring and beautiful. the bold, in-your-face (pun) approach. the face was controversial, it was raw and real and different to anything my small town eyes had ever seen. at the risk of sounding like a magazine snob, after reading the face, i could never go back to the cosmopolitan (which up untill that point was all my smalltown eyes had ever seen) tsk tsk
boasting some of the best design work from art directors neville brody and lee swillingham, the face hugely influenced my approach to layout design and typography.
needless to say, the pages that remain are snipped and torn as a result of a teenager cutting and pasting her life into journals in an attempt to make sense out of it all. (lol)
ok enough talk, see for yourself.
I found most of these images here, check it out for more covers and inside spreads.
*soooo envious of this dude's collection right now
moving was the wisest, most liberating decision i have made in a very long time.
wow. i feel so blessed.
and along with moving into your own little place comes a whole new world. i now look at furniture when i go out. (lol) and all i wana do is buy pretty things for my flat. (like the japanese teacups i fell in love with from the shop downstairs...they look similar to these..see what i mean!!)
iv done a lot of browsing on decor websites and been super inspired.
these 2 pics inspired some ideas and they're both from designsponge.they have a sneak peek section where they showcase some beautiful interiors. a world of ideas!!
aaahhh, i dream of having a library so high up i'd need a cute little ladder to get to my favorite second hand books. on the top shelf ill have all the classics, like the shakespeare's and the austen's, oe and all the poetry books. and on sundays, just before i have breakfast, ill tiptoe up the tiny ladder, get a book to suite the mood, and slowly read my favorite parts.
for now tho...

while we're on the topic of women, i thought id share a little treasure i found in the book of proverbs a few days back. you know how you can read a chapter over and over and then one day you'll just SEE something you never saw before.
