celebrating 101 years young. This grandmother’s life motto?

“You don’t always get what you want, but you get what you need.”

so what do you think? kinda a brilliant idea?

Why they say yes to foster care: 

We will say yes because these kids have to do hard things. The least we can do is look into their broken eyes and say, “Yes. I will do hard things with you. I will hold your hand and kiss your head and calm your tantrums. By God’s grace, we will figure this out together.” We say yes because these broken babies need a safe place to land.

on grace

yes, this: you don’t need a microphone to share the good news. Just go and tell. 

even when no one is looking? let’s #beTheGIFT

…you know, it’s a really kind & beautiful thing for us all to walk together through a hurting world realizing that every single one of us is fighting a hard battle & it absolutely changes everything when we realize that sometimes:

people aren’t being difficult — they are having difficulty.

We could be buckets poured out and crushed into bread to feed the busted and we could be dead to all ladders and never go higher, but only lower, to the lonely, the least, the longing, and the lost. 

And that right there? Could be our love song today. Love is not always agreement with someone, but it is always sacrifice for someone.


[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

Dare to fully live!
