Be a Pineapple


New year, New you…so why not be a Pineapple?!  Pineapple’s are more than just a sweet, healthy treat.  They stand tall and regardless of their flaws they are boisterous and proud.  And heck…they get to wear a crown.  YESSSSS!  Please, I want to be a pineapple.  On a more serious note…Be a Pineapple, Stand Tall, Wear a Crown, and Be Sweet on the Inside is one of the most inspiring quotes for 2017.

STAND TALL my friend.  Be you for that is all you can be.  Be you and be proud of your accomplishments, your faults, your desires, your goals, and your past-present-future.  You were made with love in the image of Christ.  Our maker designed you and stitched every part of you.  He knows everything about you….EVERYTHING!!!  And his love flows for you.  God’s love is unconditional and that will  never change.  So be a pineapple and stand tall; knowing you are special and absolutely beautiful!

Psalm 139:14 “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Genesis 1:27 “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

WEAR A CROWN, why not!  You my friend are royalty; the daughter of the KING, our Heavenly Father and Creator of all things.  We live a rags to riches fairy-tale that begins and ends with the Prince of Peace.  We were designed with a Happily Ever After  for ETERNITY  which beats any Disney Princess story-line.  As a royal it is safe to say that you were made to be treated as such; never settle for anything less.   Love, kindness, respect, patience, understanding, and gentleness.  So wear that crown and let your inner Princess shine.

1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.”

BE SWEET ON THE INSIDE and share it with the world.  A pineapple is rough on the outside; but regardless of the exterior faults it is what is on the inside that matters and that makes this fruit so desirable.  Just the same no matter your rough patches on the exterior, it is your inner being that counts.  God made you to love and be loved.  May kindness and love flow through you and shine in all you do and each person you interact with.

1 Corinthians 16:14 “Let all that you do be done in love.

1 Peter 3:3-4 “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.  Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”

pineappleBe a Pineapple, Stand Tall, Wear a Crown, and Be Sweet on the Inside.  This is my motto for 2017.  As a reminder, I have this beautiful print by KNOTnNEST displayed in the coziest and busiest room of my home.  Unlike other prints, the motivational image and quote is printed on a soft beautiful burlap with a glazed backing and come ready for framing.  Shabby chic and sophisticated,  KNOTnNEST artistic prints will add class and a touch of encouragement to any room.  I placed this uplifting pineapple print on my vintage nightstand in the family room for all  to see.  It delivers comfort and warmth to all guests that come to my home.   I just adore the sweet messages from KNOTnNEST!
