The Little Things Coffee Mug


*PSA: You have entered the realm of large file sizes. Your patience is appreciated! Things may take longer than usual to load and respond to user input here.


Do you dream of that “big thing” somewhere out there in the future, fearing you will miss out? What if you knew that the “big thing” was happening to you RIGHT NOW? You don’t see it yet, but the little things that are happening to you right now ARE the big thing. It’s here. It’s now. The future version of you is being formed in these very moments.

Give yourself permission to grow slow. If you are in a hurry on the inside, it doesn’t matter how many vacations you take— you will never be rested because you have not given yourself the mental permission to appreciate the little things.

Slowing down is not just an “option.” It’s the only way to fulfill your destiny. After all, the King of the universe made you to ENJOY Him, and you cannot enjoy anything in a hurry.

This mug could be the perfect reminder! The meaning behind the art on it is this:

The “big thing“ that I always fantasized about was fighting epic battles for my King— but what I did not realize was that the battles were already being fought inside ME. If I could not enjoy my Creator or His gifts then I was not fulfilling my purpose. The Enemy wanted me to be in a hurry, always looking to the ever elusive “next thing,” because if he succeeded in causing me to do that, my life would be wasted as it passed me by.

The battle is being fought in your life right now. The Enemy of your soul does not want you stopping to smell the roses! Every good thing that ever existed— even your good ideas— where from your Creator, and every moment has something in it for you. Are you looking?

Etsy couldn’t handle my grand tale I had written, so I have had to shorten the review, but it shall not denote the incredibleness of the mug: All you basically need to know is this. Purchased mug, sky cracks, thunder roars, ground sunders open, beast of darkness appears, I don armor and weapon, battle of ages commences, armor destroyed, jaws bite and claw shreds, steel slashes, swords are splintered, hope is lost, but on the fourth day a door is knocked on, open door, seize package, open said package, reveal my hope of survival: THE mug, newfound power and strength and fortitude, attack beast once more with the power of 1,000 men with the mug of power, defeat beast and it falls back into its dark chasm once again, cracked fissure closes, looks around at destroyed house, promptly makes hot chocolate with mug.



Sometimes the galleries will fail to display images and instead display a single color or a very pixelated image. This can happen because some of my portfolio images are very high resolution, (even up to 15,000 pixels across- Photoshop's maximum export size) which can cause them to load slowly for some users. 

Here are two things you can try if you think something weird is going on:

1. If you see a solid color, try refreshing your browser tab.

2. If you see a blurry image, first try waiting a bit if your internet is slow, and if that doesn't work, try step 1.

Also keep in mind that depending on your internet speed, when you click on one of these images for full-screen mode, it can take up to several minutes before you see the full-resolution version!
