Now that I’m packing around a diaper bag again, with our family’s newest addition, I was thrilled with the timely arrival of the Truly Treasured Wallet and Truly Beautiful Makeup Bag. I try to pack light, and it’s nice to be able to just add my wallet to the diaper bag as needed, without having to dig through the cluttered purse I was hauling around! The cheery patchwork print and the “vintage-style” wallet clasp are adorable, too.
The makeup bag is actually quite sizeable; there’s no way I would ever need that much space for toiletries, but it is just the right size as a roomy “clutch purse” for a few items on a quick outing (with baby) a couple minutes down the road. (Plus, the wipe-clean surface on both the bag and wallet are perfect for this season of life with little ones & their messes!)
I am delighted with the messages on each item in the new Redeemed Collection, reflecting God’s goodness, with the inspiration of this verse:
“He has made everything beautiful in its time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11
It offers daily encouragement to me, as I use them. Just the other day, after a midwife appointment, I juggled my newborn baby in an out-of-town library bathroom, with one of those infamous “newborn messes” involving a series of 3 diapers in less than a minute, Mama feeling a bit frumpy in that “nothing fits” postpartum stage, and the rest of the family waiting outside for a snack. But in the midst of it all, as I dug to the bottom of the diaper bag, this is what I saw:
Truly Treasured. I was reminded of how God sees me in these little mundane moments of my messy life, and how He really does cherish me, and sees me as His beautiful work of art, even in my brokenness. Not only that, I had to smile at the precious gift on the changing table in front of me. After several years of infertility and miscarriage, God has been filling our arms with little ones… such “beauty in His time.”
What a blessing – and I get to share it with you!
