I Love Art

Monday, June 4th, 2012

I never miss an opportunity to tell anyone who asks…that I love Indiana!  It's a wonderful state full of beautiful land, interesting people and exciting places!  This morning while doing some online reading, I found this—->

Is that cool or what?  It's a custom print made by artist, Molly Mattin and she sells them on etsy!  What's not to love about etsy, right?  She will even add cities if you don't find yours on her original print.  Wouldn't these make the best gifts?  I love it!

While I do not see my city there….I still find it really cool!  I have a few "someone's" in mind right now to give these to as gifts.  It's sure to be an interesting conversation piece.


“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine." Isaiah 55:8 (NLT)

Now, onto a hot topic.  Surely you've heard the blah blah blah about Fifty Shades of Grey?  If you haven't, good!  It's the latest book series craze among women all over the world.  I clicked on Amazon after hearing about how popular it was and found myself sick with regret for even looking at the reviews.  I couldn't believe that this was a bestseller and that women (ALL AGES) were lining up to meet the books author and to buy the books!  Really?


I'm not a book burner or basher (normally) but this type of reading is something of a shocker to me.  Especially when "christian" women are on waiting lists to get their hands on these books.  Whaaaa?  Very confusing!  I'm not sure what the pull is (don't tell me the books have a great "story line").  IT IS SMUT!  Not only is it scandalous….the reviews say it is very poorly written.  To me, it just goes to show you….PEOPLE ARE SEARCHING for something and more often than not the world is delivering two-fold with garbage!

I love the post written by author Dannah Gresh on her blog, Pure Freedom, regarding this very controversial book series.  She hits a homerun with her Biblical take on what reading such a book means for the believer.  Thank you Dannah for always writing the hard stuff.  You give a girl/woman/lady a sweet look into what God has in store for each of us–if we just follow Him!

I want to be a better wife, mom & follower because of writers like you!

Wanna read more good stuff from Dannah?  Go HERE!

Wherever you are, I hope this week holds fun and blessings!  Who knew Monday's could be enjoyable?  Oh sweet summertime!  wink
