 okay, as farmers, couldn’t be happier about stuff like this 

kinda been on repeat here: because I knew you… 

I have been changed for good

the #sharekindess campaign: saving thousands of lives #beTHEGIFT

Star Wars — Try Not to Cry Edition…

what a story

“You can go through what we’ve been through and are facing and be crushed —  or you can be confident.” Uh — this right here, folks

you’ve got to meet her: Leanne Joyce… #BeTheGIFT

Don’t stop praying before/after pics of devastation in Aleppo #WithAleppo

you’ve gotta see who he thanks every single day

after she was evicted at 89 yrs old? the neighbour shows up and does what’s crazy perfect

“It was the right thing to do,” she said. “We’re family — the whole neighbourhood.” #BeTHEGIFT

really — it’s all about helping others on the journey with us #BeTheGIFT

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

Sharing bits of my  broken heart here?  Life Today with James and Betty Robison : Brokenness

Breaking Free of being afraid of broken things – because Christ is redeeming everything

 You all are giving the gift of breaking free to your people & it’s kinda blowing me away how you’re sharing breaking free— sharing the life transformation 

Grab the Gift of Breaking Free into the Abundant Life 

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.
