This weekend, I took a swift escape with my gorgeous husband and some close friends. Lucky for us, the sun decided to join us all weekend!
The hot mineral springs of Thermopolis, WY did wonders for the last few months of crazy running about. Relaxed and refreshed, I woke up this morning to see my freckles have finally caught up with me.
If we are comparing tans, mine would win…. in spots 🙂
But as I’ve mentioned before, I love my freckles! (I am still hunting for a reason to adore my dimples, but that’s a different story). The only time I despised them was after a horrifying tanning-bed experience which magically concentrated my freckles on my upper lip area…. I came out with an epic freckle-stache right before my wedding! (note: tanning beds are evil!)
Still, my speckled skin is a constant reminder how the little things can make a big difference. I’m a girl who is always trying to make a big splash in life, be interesting, and impact the lives around me for the better. God uniquely reminds me to chill out, scale back, and be faithful in the little things.
My prayer is that the Apostle John could write these same things about me:
“I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth. Beloved, you are acting faithfully in whatever you accomplish for the brethren, and especially when they are strangers; and they have testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on their way in a manner worthy of God.” 3 John 1:4-6
Like freckles, small acts of faithfulness can add up over time.
