After this week? We all just really need to look up: #exhale? time for a sky virtual tour?

God’s got this: “He determines the number of the stars & calls them each by name.” Psalm 147:4

what we all really need these days: go make a friend?

when the gunshots rang — she ran toward them.

And whispered to him right to the end: You are loved.

We all just wanted to know we are loved — right to the very end, just to know that we are loved. Tears.

Pictures of the week? what happens when our fallen soldier doesn’t come home?

The grieving of even his dogs

don’t we all right now? When you just need a covering of hope…

But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it. Romans 8:25

maybe if we could all feel the wonder of fresh beginnings again?

Aurora Shooting Victim’s Proposal Story: The Most Inspiring Thing You’ll Read Today?

I wanted to share how God could take something as evil as a movie theatre massacre and redeem it, if only a little bit, for our good and His glory.

 

I needed 4:04 … and all the coming crescendo of this … maybe after this week we all do?

Yeah, I’ve wore it every day this week, this necklace, because I just needed to feel like there was good in the world and a real way to make a differenceBest necklace ever?  Because Work of Worth exists to sustainably employ entrepreneurs in dignity from poverty and the sex trade. Each purchase of their quality, gorgeous jewelry helps to support men and women who desire a choice for freedom and dignity for their families.

All week, I couldn’t stop thinking about Bhaji is a lively, uneducated single mother of 5 girls. Shamed and left alone with no means of income, she and her oldest daughter now fully support themselves through hand making jewelry. Okay — no words for the joy when Bhaji explained her passion to see other poor women empowered and treated with the same respect and Dignity that she has received from working with Work of Worth.

In contrast to their darker days, the girls are all continuing education, excelling, and sensing a bright future. And I’m telling you — I needed to think about redemption this week! 

This may be the best necklace I’ve ever had — goes just right with everything — and this Curated Collection with Work of Worth impacts hundreds of men, women, and families for generations. It begins a journey to freedom, dignity and a better life. You are making an eternal impact in the lives of entrepreneurs and changing communities for generations to come. You need something beautiful this week too?

Sell Your Junk, Pay Off Your Debt, And Do What You Love! This Makes It All Possible!

This means that if two people lived in a 300 square foot pad & could call it a tiny house, then 8 people living in a 2000 square foot house could boast the same title. (Our family of 8 about qualifies!) The idea is about simplicity and practical living. Couldn’t agree more!  Sort of really smitten with this

 

This week, extreme winds caused an exceptionally rare phenomenon: the river Kinder is stopped in its tracks as it is blown back up onto Kinder Scout Plateau at the point where it would normally cascade 80ft down Kinder Downfall. Maybe God was telling us that He still miraculously turns impossible things around. He stops and blows rivers backs and He parts your Red Sea and makes the impossible possible…

Go make a friend with someone hurting like you are —

this might prove it: empathy is the best medicine?

Post of the Week here: 

Why Women Don’t Need to Freeze Their Faces 

maybe this week we all need to dance a little bit?


It’s been a hard week in the world… but this is guaranteed: There’s Hope up in front of us

Yeah, don’t you know it: Worry is like this unwanted air pump that goes around inflating & blowing up bits of your beautiful life into bloated monsters. And today? Today we’re sending worry walking because we’re walking with God. Because God’s got you & God’s got today & God’s got this week & when God’s got everything, you don’t have to worry about anything. 

God’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; He won’t leave you. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t worry.” Deu.31:7MSG

Either leave your worries with God — or your worries will make you leave God – and there’s nothing that’s making us leave the strength of His carrying arm, the warmth of His holding heart. #PreachingGospeltoMyself

That’s all for this weekend, friends. 

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again

Share Whatever Is Good.
