Oh, wait! Back up..that last one, right there. Yeah, number four… These things content me:

Today I went in to Payless Shhoes to spend a Christmas gift card, with every intention of buying a pair of sneakers.. because I am in serious need of some sneakers, y’all.

But I looked high and low (throughout their size 8.5 section) and none of them “spoke” to me. None of them said, “Take me home.” .. They didn’t… CONTENT me.

But THESE. These on the other hand…

THESE CONTENT ME.

I can get sneakers some other day. ;0)

{Just ignore the fact that I need a good pedicure.. that’s a contentment horse of a different color!}

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
