“We are not called to success, but faithfulness.” . “We have to realize that no effort can be too high. . . . It must be my utmost for His highest all the time.” . “The characteristic of a disciple is not that he does good things, but that he is good in motive. . . . The only thing that exceeds right-doing is right-being.” . “It is one thing to go through a crisis grandly, but another thing to go through every day glorifying God when there is no witness, no limelight, no one paying the remotest attention to us.” . All quotes by Oswald Chambers, from his most famous work, ‘My Utmost for His Highest’ which was compiled and published by his wife, Biddy, ten years after his death. . I am currently reading a biography about the inspiring story of her life, one worthy of imitating. . “Biddy’s desire was for God’s will to come to pass; she prayed and allowed him to mold her reaction until she could praise God no matter the circumstances. She chose to believe God. She chose to break her independent way of thinking and be a bondservant of Jesus—advanced Christianity born of focusing on God’s desires, not her own.” - Michelle Ule . I would love to leave behind that kind of legacy one day when my life here is over. . . . . #oswaldchambers #biddychambers #mrsoswaldchambers #inspirational #inspirationallife #remarkablewoman #devotedwoman #faithful #trusting #servantsheart #selfless #dedicated #biography #mustread #inspiring #reflection #contemplation #sunset #superiorsunset #lakesuperior #greatlake #bestlake #chasingsunsets #gitchegumee #906life #keweenaw #eagleriver #upperpeninsula #greatlakesstate #puremichigan

Moving is a pain. However it is very good for me, as it forces me to go through *all* of my stuff and reevaluate whether or not things are worth keeping, or if they can be sold, given away, thrifted, or in the case of this once head-saving helmet, admired one last time and then laid to rest. . This helmet saw a ton of awesome trails all over the Marquette area during my college mountain biking days. It then moved to Florida, where it took up road biking, making a number of trips from the Atlantic to the Gulf. During one of the trips, it potentially saved my life, at the very least, saved me from a concussion, when I had a pretty good meeting with the ground. . Thanks, once-silver Giro (before I let you hang out in the back window of my car, post crash). . We had some good times together. Forever grateful. ❤️✌🏼 . (Currently sitting on top of the trash can. Working up to actually putting it inside.) #babysteps . . . . #moving #packing #evaluating #nostalgia #memories #remembering #goodtimes #biking #mountainbiking #roadbiking #c2c4c #biketrips #bikecrash #helmet #giro

Another birthday in the books. Can’t say I get as excited to turn a year older as I used to, but then I think of different friends who have recently lost loved ones and I am reminded of the blessings of good health and good friends, amongst many others, and I praise God I get to turn another year older. . Thank you to all of you lovely friends and family who took time to visit, call, text, post, or message me yesterday, and especially @nat_hupp who took time away from her family to spend the evening with me, eating yummy food @gemignanis_restaurant and enjoying delicious pie made by @jillj906 ❤️❤️ . Oh and I loved my dinner so much that apparently I wanted to let some of it hang out in my teeth for awhile.😆🙈🤷🏼‍♀️ . . . . #birthday #birthdaygirl #birthdayfun #celebrating #friendship #bestfriends #dinneranddessert #blessed #grateful #aginggracefully

“Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭27:14‬ . “On the day I called, You answered me; You made me bold with strength in my soul.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭138:3‬ . True courage thinks before it acts. It counts the cost before forging ahead. Waiting for the right time to act takes courage, as well as patience and wisdom. . The Bible characterizes women of God as bold and courageous. Queen Esther risked her life to save her people, God’s people, from genocide. Deborah led an army and judged the tribes of Israel. Rahab dared to hide Jewish spies in her home to save her family. . It’s encouraging to know God will supply the courage I need to accomplish whatever He asks me to do. . . . . #courage #becourageous #havecourage #boldandcourageous #strongandcourageous #patience #wisdom #discernment #bestill #stillness #quiet #reflection #realhopeforreallife #womenintheword #thepointedlife #bedeeplyrooted #womanoffaith #gritandvirtue #agodlylady #girlswithroar #thatsdarling #ladyslipper #summer #upperpeninsula #906life #puremichigan #naturalmichigan #woods #wildflowers #flora

@tararitzenthaler has left me and I’m now missing all the coffee outings. Attempting to make my own at-home Cafe Miels.☕️🍯 . Also, can I just say how many great local coffee shops we have. It’s quite impressive when you stop and think about it. @keweenawcoffee @caferosetta @5th_and_elm_coffeehouse @steepandbrewcoffee Book Worm Cyberia And even @gemignanis_restaurant has great coffee . AND on this lovely #wastefree Wednesday, I’ll just throw out that those are my two ceramic coffee to-go cups holding our yummy drinks. . . . . #coffee #coffeetime #coffeegram #miel #cafemiel #latte #latteart #coffeeshop #coffeelove #wastefreewednesday #wastenotwednesday #reuseablecup #reuse #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifestyle #zerowasteliving #zerowastecollective #ecofriendly

A perfect day to visit the Huron Islands. Minus the biting flies. Oh my. They were out of control. Thankfully the photos were worth it. I never get over the beauty of this special spot and it was so fun to share it with @tararitzenthaler !! . . . . #huronislands #upperpeninsula #keweenaw #puremichigan #naturalmichigan #localhistory #yoop #lakesuperior #summer #summerintheup #summertime #sundayfunday #blueskies #sunshine #beautyallaround #lakelife #islandadventure #escapetothelake #outdooradventures #outdoors #optoutside #getoutside #lifeisbetteroutside #nature #beautyofhiscreation #blessed
