w e e k -  f o u r t y   t h r e e

'He who walks with integrity walks securely, 
but he who perverts his way will become known.'

p r o v e b s  1 0 : 9

Integrity stems from an inner code, not an outer promotion. 
Integrity is rooted in that private life we develop alone with God in the secret, hidden place. 
King Solomon had it right: "The integrity of the upright will guide them" (Proverbs 11"3). 

Once integrity is rooted in our private life, it begins to be reflected in our relationships, with those closest to us. Many seem to think that integrity is rooted in these close interpersonal experiences, but its not. It is only reflected there if, in fact, we are men and women of integrity. 

What about your professional life, that sphere of life that is ever widening? If you have a hidden life where your own integrity finds its roots, it will not only be reflected in your close relationships with those around you, but it will also be reinforced in your day-to-day dealings in the work world. Integrity is reinforced on the anvil of personal experience and practiced in the marketplace.
Our greatest opportunity to make a difference and engage our culture is out in the marketplace. It is imperative that, as Christians, we are men and women of integrity in the professional world around us. There is a small and decreasing percentage of  people in our cities in churches on Sunday mornings. However, on Monday, multitudes enter the marketplace. They take note of individual of integrity. Integrity is not rooted in our professional life; it is only reinforced there. That is, if we truly possess it. 

Once we are thrust into the public arena, it is too late to look for integrity. If we do not already possess it, it is too late. However, some seek to put a spin on their personal promotion in a hopeless effort to somehow lead others to believe they are people of integrity. But integrity in not rooted in spin, it's rooted in our private world. Solomon's words ring true today: "He who walks with integrity walk securely, but he who perverts his ways will become known".
When integrity is rooted in the private world, it is reflected in the personal world, reinforced in the professional world, and, ultimately, revealed in the public world for the glory of the GOD whom we love and serve. 

As you memorize this verse, meditate on your own private life. Bring focus to that time along with God, to your hidden life. Then 'all these things shall be added to you' (Matthew 6:33).


hello hunting season!
camo has been a favorite 'color' of mine for a few years now. yes its a color -i'm pretty sure my girl lauren is right there with me on this statement:)

now that camo is everywhere (not just a hunting or military accessory) its even easier to style and work it into your everyday look - even for mamas and the minis!

spending the weekend at sp's family ranch is one of my favorite things to do!
waking up in the middle of nowhere to complete stillness and staying up to see countless stars in the sky is always the perfect reminder to slow down, take in God's perfect beauty and enjoy the little things that make life so sweet! 
spending time at the ranch during hunting season is sp's favorite -ever. waking up before the sun thinks about coming up, sneaking out to the best hunting spots and then doing the same thing again before the sun sets in the evening- he's like a little boy on Christmas morning everyday he gets to hunt - its the cutest!
i generally like to go with him in the mornings - sunrise and coffee is my jam. mainly because snuggling up by the fire with a glass of wine in the evening at the hunt house is the best... i'll leave the evening hunts to the boys.

its wednesday again - almost through another week at the office!
but first lets get out of office clothes and into something a little more comfortable for the weekend!
one of the first things i do when i get home after work: loose the heels, loose the bra. yup, i said it. but really, who wants to be in a bar all day?! its the worst. so a slim fitting tank if my weekend go-to under most anything;) and if i cant be barefoot for whatever reason, i will be in supergas or converse (monogrammed converse of course).
