Words To Live By

The past year and a half or so, I will randomly ask Matt the following question:

"What Do I Want to Do With My Life?!" 

My husband has started replying with these 5 words.

If you would like to post on your blog, feel free! 

Matt has always been such an inspiration to me. He is always encouraging me to be better, but does it in the most loving way possible (most of the time. hehe!) 

I am so thankful for him and for his wisdom and love for God. 

This guy... love this picture of us in the cutest coffee shop in Trier Germany last year. Love the elderly couple behind us as well... 

In 2013, I have decided to do my best to stop asking that question and to love God, and Love people. 

That's what my job is. To love people. As I head back to work tonight I am going to continue to remember these words. When I am out and waiting in a long line with people that are making me crazy, I will remember these words. 

I hope this is a bit of inspiration for you as well. I felt that in the New Year, we all try to make so many changes. We exercise, diet, try to read our Bibles more, "live healthier", etc. This year, I just want to Love God, and Love People and through this, I feel like the rest comes along... 

Have a blessed day! 

What are your words to live by for 2013?! Link post in my comments if you feel like posting about it! 
I would love some more inspiration! 


  1. That first quote is absolutely perfect, and so simple for us to remember. Love this!

  2. That quote is perfect. It's awesome how great of a example our husbands can be to us! My husband was just talking about this the other day. I'm going to have to pin that picture as a reminder. (beautiful picture of you two!)

  3. It seems like a great code to live by and you're fortunate to find someone in life who shares your values and can support you in them. Sounds very grounded.
    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I am so bad at remembering people's birthdays it seemed a simpler way - and nice to get a card, 'just because'.
    Have a great week.

  4. Awe. what a great saying.
