microscope heart: gina + a series introduction

it's been a while since we've done a microscope heart post, and i can't think of a sweet person to bring it back than gina, my sweet friend from contemplating beauty. since meeting gina a few months ago, i've been blown away by her kindness, gentleness and heart for Christ. oh and she too has a fluffy white dog-->arrows to my heart immediately.

Thank you so much Courtney for having be a guest on your beautiful blog, it's humbling and exciting to share with all of you today! As most of you do, I adore Courtney and admire her writing so much! Courtney has been an amazing friend and sister in Christ in this blog journey, and I am thankful for her!

When Courtney asked me to write something for Microscope Heart, the simplest thing that makes me happy, I couldn't resist sharing about my pooch. His name is Nells, and here are a few fun facts about him:

-He is from a strip mall pet store (I think that's less common these days)
-He walks backwards (not regularly, but from time to time)
-He is Apricot color, I guess you could say he's a ginger (hehe)
-He loves BUTTER, and all dairy, he would do anything for it!
-He howls at the first Wednesday of the month sirens
-He is 75% poodle, and 25% Bichon

Nells warms my heart in so many ways. He makes me laugh and brings great comfort to me through many circumstances in my life. He's such a faithful friend, and eases my soul when it is heavy laden. It's incredible what pooches can do to lift our spirits, they add so much to our lives! I'm so thankful for God's creatures, especially my little 6 year old boy.

thank  you, gina! be sure to check out her blog for more pics of nells. oh, and to read her beautiful posts too:)

and now, an announcement:

an exciting announcement: gina and i are partnering with morgan of mama loves papa for a five-week series on relationships. these ladies are so kind. they are sweet and communicative, and wonderful partners on this blogging journey.

this is a series on finding God in the hard times, praising God through the blessed times, and leaning on and learning from Him and each other during the times between. we will be tackling topics like communication, loving through the storms, and more.

starting next tuesday, we will be posting once a week. and we'll be posting link-ups for you to join, if you will. we hope you'll consider it and play along! 

next week's series topics is: expectations: the ones you brought into the relationship. the ones you still hang on to. the ones you strive toward and the ones you threw away. 

*and though marriage is a topic, we'd love to hear from everyone--single, dating, divorced, married, engaged, widowed. anyone. because i believe what my mama told me is true: the single most important thing that matters on this earth, second only to your relationship with Christ, are the relationships you form with the people around you.

have a beautiful, blessed weekend! xoxo
