Scattering of Love :: Batch 1


My last Friday Randomness post appeared right before the new blog makeover which included a new tag line. It seems appropriate to return with a new name for this hopefully weekly post: Scattering of Love . . . the love found on the web (and a few other places quite possibly).

How about we limit the love found to five as to not overwhelm either of us.

Declare Love

Meeting these ladies at the Declare Conference. . . oh, what a delight. No words are needed. I just love them!

Inspiring ladies you should know (from left to right): Rebecca, Karin, and Jana

Hugging this fabulous lady was one of the highlights of the weekend.

Did you know tickets are already on sale for Declare 2015 and they are only $80.00? If the conference wasn't over my birthday weekend I would buy in a heartbeat. My husband and I have spent my past two birthday's apart so I have every intention of being home for the next one.

Decorating Love

My daughter-in-law knows how to shop and decorate. She found the vase at a thrift store and the flowers are from a local farmer's market. Beauty for only a few dollars! And her little Storm in the picture is a sweetheart. I'm off this weekend to find myself a similar vase and plan to stop at the farmer's market for flowers because I want this in my living room. As much as I love Storm, my two pups are enough.


Reading Love

I have several books going at the moment (really hate when I do that). But Bread and Wine by Shauna Niequist is pure enjoyment. Did you know Shauna resides in Chicago? Do you think she would meet me for lunch and a glass of wine?


Blog Reading Love

Why I named my Blog "Embracing Grace and Truth" by Denise J. Hughes

I do so hope I reflect His grace, truth and love in all that I think, say, and do too. By the way, I also had the pleasure of meeting Denise at Declare. What a sweet, sweet woman.

Video Love

Good News for Idol-Worshipers by Asheritah of One Thing Alone

Are you studying Jonah with Hello Mornings? Even if you are not, I promise you will enjoy Asheritah's video. And I think anyone who does videos of themselves is super brave so she has won me over.

For more scattering of love visit Kristen and Kristin. I know, that makes it more than five. They are worth the visit though.

Until next time, friends, have a beautiful joy-filled weekend.

  2. I'm so glad you met Denise Hughes! Her gentle, humble spirit reminds me of you. I met Denise in 2013 when she cohosted (in)RL with Jacque Watkins (who writes the blog Mercy Found Me). They encouraged me to start my blog.

  4. I am so thankful you go to go to Declare. It's a dream of mine to go to a blogging conference some day. And my friend just returned to me Bread & Wine. I didn't have time to read it when I got it. But I look forward to sitting down with that. LOVE the new name for your Friday randomness! Thanks for linking up today!

    1. It's a book that I'm thinking will be great for picking up here and there. Not one to rush through but simply enjoy. You will love it when you do have a chance to read. It was great to linkup again this weekend. Love you. xoxo

  5. You are such an encourager, Beth. I love seeing your smile but knowing all that you must be going through each day with your husband half-way around this world reminds me to pray.

  10. Prefect name for your place of encouragement and fun on Fridays. Love this! You know I'm reading the book so I really think you need to hook up with her someday. Someday perhaps I'll go to Declare or you'll come to Allume and we will meet. Happy weekend!

  12. The new name is perfect, Beth, for that's exactly what you do, scatter the seeds of love. May the yield be a hundred fold, and more. Have a blessed week!

  13. Hi Beth! It was so fun to see you with your new friends from the conference. Sounds like you had a great time! And if that author knows what's good for her, she'd call you and have bread and wine all afternoon, chatting and sharing with you.
    Keep scattering your seeds my friend!
