I'm so excited about the lock screen for this month! Thanks for your patience in getting them to you a week or so late, while I worked on our reLaunch.
So what do you think of our new look?! Are you loving all the freshness of it? I realize I'm quite biased, but I really really love how it turned out. Someone mentioned yesterday how it's so much more interactive now...and easier to be interactive! I hope you agree.

This month we've teamed up with professional photographer Katie Harris over at Creole Wisdom.
She and I met last spring at Hope Spoken, while I was desperate for a good cup of coffee and she saw me waiting for a cab to grab one. Instead, she and a friend shared their rental car and we set off on a coffee-finding adventure, finally landing at the most chic coffee house in Dallas.
Love her for letting me put our verse on top of the prettiness she snapped.
Since we're in October and harvest has begun, I thought 2 Corinthians 9:6 was perfectly appropriate.
But lets look a little deeper...there's so much rich text around this verse!
6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.9 As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;their righteousness endures forever.”
10 Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
12 This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.

Isn't that fantastic encouragement? I just keep re-reading it. Give what you've decided in your heart to give...God loves a cheerful giver. YES!
God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times...you will abound in every good work. YES!
Your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. YES!
May you be blessed this month as you pour out cheerful generosity! xo
