Wondrous things calendar log.

First, I want to wish my mom a happy birthday! The little one and I just enjoyed a lunch with my mom. It was definitely my wondrous thing today. Last weekend I took salad bar fixings and a chocolate cake to my parents’ place to celebrate her birthday {also a wondrous thing.}


We enjoyed fresh food, chocolate, and family…all the fine things in life. :)


One of the gifts I gave my mom was what I’m calling a “wondrous things calendar log.” Probably one of the best things my mom ever taught me was to look for a daily wondrous thing from God. {See more about what that means in this post: Wondrous thing in full bloom}

My favorite blog to read is Ashley Ann’s Under the Sycamore Tree. She has such a heart for God and her family {not to mention that she is an amazing photographer and crafter.} Without sounding too creepy, she inspires me to love deeper through her blog. She posted a link to a free download of her “Best of my days calendar.”  Here’s her lovely version…

I simply printed the pages and used some cardboard, scrapbook paper, ribbon, and mod podge to create some fun covers for the little books.

I made 6 of these with different paper and ribbon for some special ladies in my life {including my mom.}

Feel free to make your own! I think it’s a fabulous daily habit to get into – makes me intentional about looking for the lovely in life, the precious gifts from God.

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
