she loved the Lord with all her heart

my work has a secret pal program where for each month of the school year you give/receive gifts from your secret pal. this month is the last month & our reveal month. {sweet secret pal of mine, if you're reading this, as i know you often do, you will know i am your secret pal when you see the bag this this week!} since it was a special month, i sprang for a cute gift bag. here is what it looks like:

as i was cleaning, i decided to go ahead and "wrap" the gift. then i sat it on the rail to remember to take down the stairs and place it by my purse so i won't forget it {i have the worst memory!} when i was walking by, i noticed this on the side:

with everything that i've been going through, this really touched my heart. it's amazes me how God shows you sweet little messages sometimes- even when you don't know you need them. 


i just loved the quote on the front of the bag so much it inspired me to make my first printable! the link takes you to dropbox. {since this is my first one- please let me know if it doesn't work!!}

i also did a plain white copy you can find here


  1. I love this and I love the scripture at the side of the bag. I just texted it to a dear friend of mine.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Wishing you a blessed day.

  2. Joining you from "Jack of all Trades Link-up" - I love this bag and your printable is fantastic! I'll be sharing this on my FB page this week for sure! The secret little scripture on the side of the bag is a good one to remember. I just love how God sneaks these messages into our days - just as a reminder that He knows what we're going through and that He's with us! Thanks for sharing this - and btw - where did you get this bag, it'd be perfect for our secret sisters program we just started at my church this month!

  3. That Secret Pal program sounds awesome! It's like Christmas but all year! I also love the printable! Thanks!
