Rooted to bloom

Ok so I changed the name of the blog..."Be Fair & Bloom" is taking a new direction that is pretty exciting and I will definitely share that with you all soon, but because of that I felt it was necessary to change the name of the blog.  I am not set on this name but I had to choose something! I chose "rooted to bloom" because right now I am focusing on my roots.  Really working on having a good foundation.  I have discovered I am trying to produce fruit without a solid foundation in Christ and that just isn't going to work.  I have to work from the bottom up.

Where I am starting, is trying to truly find satisfaction is God.  I am sure plenty can relate when I say I look for fullness in all sorts of things other than Him.  This explains why I always come up empty.  I read a Psalm this morning that really stuck out to me Psalm 16:11 "You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore." I can honestly say about 90% of the time I am closed off to Him leaving no room for His presence in my life.  Not good, not good at all.  I honestly believe this is the root of all my issues and if I work on this    I will see blossoms slowly start to bloom. (cheesy, I know, but metaphor's help me)

I made a little iPhone wallpaper to have as a pretty reminder (I kind of have a floral obsession if you hadn't noticed). The photo is mine so feel free to use it as you please!

I will definitely update you soon on the new direction of Be Fair & Bloom. I can't wait to share it with everyone!
