Seeing the Everyday {Giveaway}

Seeing the Everyday is a beautiful magazine that reminds us that it’s the process and helps us to see the beauty in every aspect of our lives. Seeing the Everyday shares the stories and images of everyday people and how they find the  beauty and wonder in  their lives

Seeing the Everyday magazine documents the simple, daily, prosaic experiences where fathers and mothers look beyond what might appear inconsequential and instead see the relationship. We share their stories that we might all learn to see. ~ Seeing the Everyday website

If you’ve read Raising Olives for long, you’ll recognize that we share this mission of striving to see the beauty of relationship in the midst of the everydayness of our lives. This magazine will beckon you to sit down with a cup of tea and reflect on the beauty of shoelaces, smudged faces and youthful giggles.

Seeing the Everyday is a quarterly, advertisement free magazine with beautiful photography printed on lovely, high quality paper. You’ll want to keep every copy and it would make a delightful gift.  The cover price is $6.75 and you may purchase a years subscription for $24.

Seeing the Everyday is pairing up with Raising Olives to offer two Raising Olives’ readers a year long subscription.

    My husband is my biggest blessing. He loves me unconditionally and treats me with the highest respect and love. He is the sweetest, wisest, most loving husband. Thank you, Jesus for blessing me with him!

    This morning I woke up early, as usual, before dawn. My bedroom window was open slightly letting in the early morning symphony of birdsong I’ve come to rely upon as heavenly music from above welcoming a new day with enthusiasm. My feet quietly walking across the carpeted floor, my two sons and husband asleep in our bed, faces calm, peaceful, angelic and my sweet baby daughter cuddled in her crib with the blanket I made for her over a year ago, well, I was filled with gratitude. My heart is overflowing with love and gratitude and enjoyment for this wonderful place that God has taken me. Knowing that my own wonderful mother was coming to visit today, knowing all was well, and feeling such joy and gratitude for this mother’s day. Blessings and peace to all!

    The fact that my children want to be near me. It’s so easy to see them as a bother or in my way. They are 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 years old. But, if I take the time, I know that it truly is a blessing to have them always crawling on my lap or following me through the house.

    My greatest beauty is sitting around the dinner table and hearing one of the children pray. They always say thank you for each and every family member, but after that all bets are off. We have had gratitude for weather, for favorite food that’s not on the table, for friends, for ‘Mom thinking about maybe taking us to the park tomorrow, Lord, please help her decide yes’, etc.

    Welcome to RH! So glad to have you and I was so encouraged by your post. I’d love to win this too :) One of my favorite ways to “see” is by spending time outdoors. I especially enjoy bird watching as they are so varied and each one reminds me of God’s faithfulness.

    Thanks for your blog and your example. God bless, sweet sister.

    One incredible blessing is having good friends with whom I can share my struggles, knowing that they will pray for me and encourage me and challenge me. It is a beautiful thing when the body of Christ works the way it should.

    I love hearing my children laugh! I love watching them sleep. I love seeing them help each other complete a task. I love seeing them take pleasure in the simple things in life. It brings me great joy!

    Every morning I wake up and am so thankful to God for a new day to enjoy to its fullest with the two amazing blessings that he has entrusted to me. I am so thankful to get to live life fully with them every day. To watch them experience life and to teach them here at home in the real world of His.

    The beauty in my every day life is to see the importance in living and walking by faith, not by sight. How kind our Lord is to show us this truth through every diaper we change, every meal we prepare, and every mundane thing we do -day in and day out- because through all of this we look to our Lord and ask that He will bless it and then we know by FAITH that He has and will for His name sake. That’s the beauty and blessing of raising children for our King!

    Being able to stay at home with our children has been a blessing and I’m truly thankful.

    I am just now starting to seeing the beauty of everyday in my life. I have been feeling utterly alone but have come to know I am not alone. I have a wonderful husband and 4 wonderful children, and a God who loves me for me. My husband has a good job so I am able to stay home with our children. And now the blessing of being able to home school them. Seeing the beauty of the day is allowing my heart and soul that once was aching to be at peace.

    I realize that I miss most of the everyday beauty that I should be seeing and instead whine and complain. There are times though when I am brought to tears by seeing my children playing in the yard and am grateful that I took the opportuntiy to stop and watch. It is at that point I become disappointed that I don’t stop more often. I put to much energy and effort into things that I thinkg should be done and not what “needs” to be done. I hope I win this giveaway, it means more to me than anything I have ever entered. I believe this is what I need to help me keep my mind focused on what is truely important.
