Download, print, save, share, tweet, post, email, sing, dance, jump up & down… whatever you gotta do to get yourself excited!!! Tell your girlfriends to download it with you & let’s study James together this January! Use #_soulsisters2016 to share where your calendar is hanging (whether you have it saved as your desktop wallpaper or hanging on your mirror), what your Jesus time looks like (with coffee in the early mornings or snuggled with your pets in bed at night). We are all so different, but we all have one thing in common! We can’t wait to see how YOU use them!
We are so excited to grow closer to Jesus, get to know more of you, & spend more time digging deep in God’s word this year. We are praying for you. That these calendars serve no other purpose than to fix your eyes on Jesus, & our hope is that you fall in love with Him this year!
P.S. If there are things to download or days that have outside sources to read… come back to this post, because everything (music, devotionals, wallpapers, & the calendars each month) will be posted here!!! Save this somewhere & it will lead you back to this post: http://www.thepastelfox.com/category/soul-sisters-2016-calendars/OR click on the Soul Sisters 2016 Calendars Tab in the Categories section on the right.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID SOMETHING JUST FOR FUN???
I love to paint, & I’ve painted a few times over the last couple months, but never just for fun.Whatever I do, I am always doing it to accomplish something and check another thing off my mile long to-do list. I sit on the couch, sacrificing time with my husband when he gets home from work, in order to get ahead & keep up on all the designs I have lined up. Time is disappearing & instead of making sweet memories I am just trying to get through it all. My new motto for life is being happy, being present & having fun.
We are going to be old and dead soon enough. You may say: “I will do that when ___________ is over, or when I hit this age, or when I retire, or after the holidays, or this, or that… but when you do finally decide to stop the craziness and really live, it’s going to take some major re-training of your brain. We are so used to just going through the motions & we create habits that aren’t easy to break. Start now. Why don’t we enjoy life right here, right now. Why don’t we stop worrying about making other people happy & focus on what makes us happy.
What is fun to me, won’t necessarily be fun to you… but that’s the beauty of it. Let’s do this JUST FOR FREAKING FUN. Use this hashtag to join in on the FUN & let’s start doing more things that fill our souls & light a fire within us!
