“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5 NIV)
Have you ever really thought about the relationship between a branch and the vine? We don’t use these kinds of word pictures very much anymore, but think about it — if the branch is not attached to the vine, it withers and dies. The very life of the branch depends on being attached to the vine. The same thing happens if we try to operate in this life without Jesus. Without Him, we can do nothing. We are cut from our life source. But when you remain in Him by daily connecting with Him through prayer, worship and study of the Word, then your life will be fruitful. You’ll walk in joy and blessing.
Notice that this verse says “much fruit.” It’s saying that you will have an abundant harvest in your life. Remember, God doesn’t want you to just barely get by. He wants to overwhelm you with His goodness! Choose to remain in Him today; choose to make Him your top priority, and you’ll see His hand of blessing operating in every area of your life!

Rain on roof outside window, gray light, deep covers and warm blankets. Rain and nip of autumn in air; nostalgia, itch to work better and bigger. That crisp edge of autumn.

I finally found the photographer who took (the top) picture that I’ve seen on Tumblr so much. I wanted to know where my dream garden existed IRL, so I checked it out. Jonathan Levitt is based in Maine, so maybe that dreamy photo was taken there? Plus- more great shots by him. swoon.

tell us a little thing ryan does for you that you love

chelsieautumn:

most evenings before we fall asleep and most mornings as we are waking up, he rolls over, hugs me tight, and sleepily whispers into my ear that I am his hero.

I know that is silly but it is incredibly amazing to know that I can be his hero just like he is mine. He doesn’t treat me small or as a dependent on him, but every day he acknowledges how amazing I am just on my own. He believes in me so much and affirms my strength and roots for my success and thinks I am completely unbelievably great on my own. Some days I have no idea why, because I can really be not so great….but to have a man who speaks that right into my heart every day and night gives me so much joy and boldness and confidence in who I am just as Chelsie. :)

That is one of my favorite things about him. (there are thousands and thousands of other things too….he’s pretty amazing).
