Creating Memories with Jars

Simple Pinecone Swag

Simple Pinecone Swag Title

Written by Kelly @ Eyes on the Source, Contributing Writer Recently our family was out on a walk together and we came across a trail littered with beautiful pinecones.  Don't you love how God decorates for us in the beauty of nature?! :) Beyond the physical beauty of pinecones, just think about their picture of renewal and growth.  It is not until a pinecone experiences hot/dry/difficult times that it open up to fulfill the greatness it was created for.  If a pinecone … [Read more...]
