In my last post, I quoted the line from a design magazine: “God is in the details.” I didn’t elaborate, but my context was accessorizing and how often we stop short in this area for numerous reasons such as laziness, lack of inspiration, fear, or indecision. However, because the God I serve is such an immense God, full of glory and might and power, something in me rebels at the thought of reducing Him to accessories in a room.  The truth is, He will not be reduced by me or anyone else, no matter how hard we try. As I ponder this quote more fully, I can’t help but appreciate the truth it holds far beyond home decor. The truth of the matter is this: God IS in the details.  The details of our very lives. Every coincidence, every leaf, each and every bird, a breeze at just the right moment, a cup…

I have been asked several times where my blog name ‘All Mimsy’ originated and whether or not it has significant meaning. The answer to the second question is no.  All Mimsy, in and of itself, does not have significant meaning, which is the precise reason it suited this blog.

I have so missed All Mimsy this week. I spent last weekend in Anchorage with some very fun shopping buddies (my own little Amaya being one of them, since we celebrated her 6th birthday while there).  Although I had compiled quite a shopping list of items, clothing was unfortunately scooted to the bottom as I spent most of my budget on house items instead.  I was excited to find several things on my list, and acquired a few unexpecteds as well. Sadly, however, my  wardrobe is becoming more and more dated…a malady Mr. Wonderful and I have discussed often of late as we both officially entered our forties.  A major overhaul of our closet, however, will have to wait.  So many other fun things to do! Upon my return, however, my computer began hiccuping, then dying at unexpected (and quite inconvenient) times, and eventually ceased turning on altogether.  My dear…
