This seems so much like Jesus

The Heart of Marriage by Dawn Camp: …

Always put each other first: each other’s needs, wants, and desires.

Making your spouse happy will in turn make you happy.”


Love Lives Here by Maria Goff: … 

“Leave your mark on the world.

The residue you leave, will be like layers of love leading you, your family, friends, and neighbors to a place called home for generations to come.” I love this book!


A 14 Day Romance Challenge by Sharon Jaynes: 

We can get so busy taking care of life that we forget to take care of love.”

Post of the Week from these parts here:

you know, honestly, life is wildly hard.  
And we’re all just kinda hanger-ons, holding on — trying to figure out how to hold on, how to let go…. when to let go. And then this happened:

When It’s Hard to Keep Holding On: What Changes Absolutely Everything

Okay! The rest of this week?! We’re going after JOY!
Not because we have it all together or not because it’s all going to go perfect, but simply because: Choosing an ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE is how we KEEP CHOOSING JOY!
Because: Gratefulness is not what you feel AFTER times of joyfulness — Gratefulness is what you have to CHOOSE to GET to times of joyfulness.
The bottom line is: Being grateful IS WHAT MAKES YOU joyful. 
Gratitude in our circumstances — is what changes our circumstances.

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

Dare to fully live!

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.
