Perfect Gift Challenge – 2020

Over on the Mama X Facebook page, I started a challenge for us to share beautiful views from within the walls of our homes. It’s one way for me to connect and relate to you all since we won’t be able to gather for a while.
I love perspective and you all often inspire me with your views and ideas. We are always trying to start conversation and open dialogue online but I think we’ve had enough of the words and headlines and voices.
Let us look together, let us share with each other in image.
Anything pretty, silly, good and perfect that reminds us of God’s omnipresence. Go over and share your pictures directly on the post, this post or even share photos on Instagram with the hashtag #perfectgiftchallenge2020
This was the image I shared on Instagram, the caption is copy and pasted below.

Being introverted, the idea of staying away from people doesn’t really intimidate me…until, I realize how sheltering in introversion just makes me more introverted. Going out and about in work, the community, etc. keeps me connected to people because I still need that even if I prefer solitude. Too much solitude becomes isolation and I forget how to relate—I forget there are even people to relate to. Microcosmic life is not the whole. Social media would present itself as a proper solution but it’s not, for all of us. It’s just as easy to be ignored and overlooked online as it is in person. But let’s not overlook. Let us LOOK and look together!

There is still beauty in all of this. Even in distancing and isolation, God’s presence is still with us.

James 1:17
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

I’ll be sharing charming views from around the house and the yard with hopes that you will share your beautiful views, too! (Really, do not let me be alone 🤣) What good thing has God given to you? In the midst of big chaos, let’s find glory in the little perfect things.
These dried roses are hanging above my desk… 🥀

Share your photos with the hashtag #perfectgiftchallenge2020

With love,
Mama X
