Three Things I’m Loving – February Edition

I’m kind of obsessed with these three things right now and I wanted to share that love with you; maybe you’ll be obsessed too. I may even turn this into a fun monthly series.

1)These gorgeous glass jars.

From Target, of course. In the dollar bin section y’all. I just love the pretty pattern.



I don’t even have a place to put them but they hopped into my cart before I could protest so…… guess it was meant to be. And they have a rubber seal in the lid so you could use them in your kitchen to store your flax seed or flour or whatever else it is you domestic types store in the kitchen.

2) This precious, precious book:

When God Made Light By Matthew Paul Turner

when God made light 2

when god made light 1


And if you ever feel scared

in the darkness of night,

remember the shadows are no match for God’s light.

Climb into bed,

sleep soundly and dream,

and know that inside you God’s glow is agleam.


 ‘Cause You’re just like the sun and moon in the sky,

as lustrous as twinkles that dazzle the eye.

You’re as splendid as lightning when it flashes so bright,

’cause on the day you were born, God said, “Let there be light!”

Gah. I mean come on. Those words are so precious and I’ve been reading this to Charlotte each day since it arrived.

Charlie is my sweet worrier. The mothering instinct inside her is so strong, she just can’t help but hover and coddle think of every worst case scenario possible. Her little anxious mind is always tripping over ‘what ifs’. I’m constantly second guessing myself as a mother. Am I giving her the comfort she needs? Am I actually feeding these fears rather then helping her cope with them? Am I saying the right things? This book is so encouraging for both of us!

God is so big and so good. His light is what brings life and it’s only in Him where we can really settle in and let all those fears go. This book {and the one that came before: When God Made You} has the sweetest pictures and focuses on reminding kiddos {ahem, and adults} that we have a purpose, our lives have meaning, and we have a light that needs sharing. It is very life-affirming and encouraging. Hands down my favorite thing right now. Plus, the illustrations are just fabulous and make me chuckle.


3) My thieves cleaner:

I’m trying not to turn into a germaphobe, but it’s really an impossible task right now with all the flu and virus strains going around.


And with me being immunocompromised after my transplant, I just can’t risk it.  I’ve also been trying to get all the toxic chemical cleaners out of our home for a while now, and my newfound focus on all things anti-germ has given me the perfect push to just kick the yucky chemicals out the front door.



This glass bottle full of cleaner was given to me as a gift from a generous friend before my transplant when I was desperate to stay healthy so we wouldn’t have to postpone surgery.  Isn’t it cute? I use this cleaner pretty much everywhere.

(Thieves is also great for getting sticky residue off of that new thing you bought and tried to pull the label off of and failed miserably. Manufacturers are laughing at us all.)

You can get Young Living oils and this cleaner here. Pretty amber glass bottles here. Vinyl labels here.

In addition to using this cleaner I’ve got pure thieves oil, thieves spray, and thieves hand purifier stashed away in every nook and cranny. I even put some on the inside of my face mask when I’m forced to head out and be around people. Most of whom are living, breathing, coughing germ sharers. Adding Thieves to the inside of my mask helps alleviate any respiratory ‘panic’ I may start to experience from wearing a mask for long periods of time. Most importantly though, all of the oils that go into making thieves (Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary) have some sort of impact on the immune system, whether it’s antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, or antioxidant.

One thought on “Three Things I’m Loving – February Edition

  1. 1. Louis L’Amour Education of a Wandering Man (book) I love biographies. 2. My dryer balls from Norwex. (cut drying time in half) AND when clothing is dry I take a few drops of my favorite essential oil (depends on the day) place one of them and tumble for 10 min. Voila…no more dryer sheets needed! 🙂 They last FOREVER! 🙂 3. This Podcast which comes out every Tuesday.
