If you could stand in someone else’s shoes . . . hear what they hear. See what they see. Feel what they feel. Would you treat them differently? Be kind out there — we’re all fighting a hard battle.
…so, hands down, this the most revolutionary thing that every one of us needs to pass on to our people, the next generation, all the world’s kids more than anything else:
the best gift we have got to give the next generation (and it’s not what’s popularly peddled)
never, ever, ever, EVER give up hope
they needed to know: no one is ever, ever, EVER forgotten

Post of the Week from these parts here:

And she came to us from Aleppo…
And… well, honest, I’m just all kinds of busted & this is all I could think about today:
on repeat this week: An Advent Hymn
O’ Holy Night
…Today? “Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions & praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns — it’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life” Phil4:6-7MSG.
Turns out? Worry is always belief gone wrong. Because some part of your heart doesn’t believe that God will get it right.
But Peace is belief that exhales.
Because your heart believes that God’s love is everywhere – like air. It’d be quite something — for us all to breathe deep peace & exhale.
Either leave your worries with God today…or your worries will make you leave God.
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.
