let go.

Thank you all so much for your kind words about the news of boy #2 :) We are very excited! October has been a very busy month. A good month, but a very busy one. I’ve been trying to catch up on sessions, client galleries, and such. Today I came across this awesome quote that I wanted to take a second and share. It was yet another reminder to leave everything in the Lord’s hands, and let go.

“If we had the least notion of God’s lovingkindness and tender mercy,
His fatherly care for His poor children, His generousity, His beautiful
plans for us; if we knew how patiently He waits for our turning to Him,
how gently He means to lead us to green pastures and still waters, how
carefully He is preparing a place for us, how ceaselessly He is ordering
and ordaining and engineering His Master Plan for our good-if we had any
inkling of all this, could we be reluctant to let go of our smashed
dandelions or whatever we clutch so fiercely in our sweaty little hands?…
If with courage and joy we pour ourselves out for Him and for others for
His sake, it is not possible to lose, in any final sense, anything
worth keeping.  We will lose ourselves and our selfishness.  We will
gain everything worth having.”  –Elizabeth Elliot

I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday. Much love…


This is so beautiful and so so so refreshing! I love that quote. Thank you for sharing! ((hugs))

Arielle, thank you for sharing the quote by Elizabeth Elliot! I needed the reminder. :)

Ohhh! I like that a lot. I’m going to journal that. Thanks, lovely! :)

This is beautiful, thank you for sharing it! I’ve been reading a lot of blog posts today about trusting God, so I guess this is something I need to hear:)

That quote was very encouraging to me today. Thanks, Arielle!

Congratulations Arielle :) Another beautiful boy to welcome into your family. You look so gorgeous with a baby bump! x
