Light a candle and settle in from the rain.

Yesterday we got a much-needed full day of steady rain. It was the perfect, slow and constant shower that takes its time to soak deep into the ground. With the dry, brittle grass and hard ground, we were in dire need of some replenishment.
I thought about it all day at work…finally home, I warmed up in sweat pants and a hoodie, lit my pumpkin spice candle, and settled in from the rain.
I also decided to “make” another candle that would be perfect for my Fall season craving…
So simple – just some fresh coffee beans in a glass vase with a gold votive candle nestled inside. The warmth from the candle brings out the rich smell of the coffee nicely. Mmm, perfect for a rainy day.
One down side to the rainy days is the soppy, muddy, wet walks with the pup. Poor thing poofs into a frizz ball after being outside!
We enjoyed some time with our church’s “Cleaver’s” small group.  {And we had to snap a photo in the car of our matchy hats…Eugene’s so pumped about the Red’s season!}
Trying to keep in mind a line from my devotion today…
"Some matters are too complicated for us to figure out. Let God open and close the doors. Believe that He will prepare and provide."
It’s always a challenge for me to stop trying to figure everything out. {Let it go. Better yet, really give it to Him.}

  1. LOVE this idea! Found your post on Polly Want a Crafter. So true God will care for us - just give it all to Him. Have a great day :). melissa

  2. LOVE your coffee bean candle idea! I've always said that I would love a coffee scented candle but they just don't seem to make them. But this idea is easy and gives me just what I want. I'm putting coffee beans on my grocery list as soon as I post this. :)

  3. Ooh, I love this idea! Thanks for sharing it! :)

  4. Oh! I love the coffee bean candle! We always have old coffee beans and this would be the perfect use for them! Glad I stumbled across this post! :) Happy Fall!

  5. Thanks everyone! :) I also took some of the leftover coffee beans and put them in my cup holder in the car...great air freshener when the car gets warm from the sun! mmm!
