Sunday: Be Inspired and Rest 07-06-14

Happy Sunday, friends! I wanted to share a few of my most inspirational (or simply delightful) encounters online this week.  I can't take credit for any of these gracious expressions or hopeful links, but I do hope that passing them on will provide some joy to you today! If you find something you would like to Pin, please take time to visit the original source, if available, and Pin from there. I have provided an easy-to-click hyperlink credit to any traceable sources. When applicable, I've also included my favorite quotes from some of the reading passages so you can have a small preview before you read on.

I hope this is encouraging for you! Have a lovely, restful Sunday!

With summer comes the great swimsuit debate. I love a good two-piece, but in the past couple of years, I have given more thought to the overall tug-of-war between modesty and skimpier fashion trends. The next two links provide a little perspective on what's really important when considering swimsuit choices.

"So I ask myself: is faith believing that God won’t let us fall or is it believing that when we do He’ll catch us?
He never promised us that we wouldn’t fall. And I wonder that maybe too many of us are scared of the falling so that we never even leap." ~Sarah Markley
