Post of the Week from these parts here

how to survive in a world of loud critics & judgers — including the repetitive one in your mind


Take the Dare, Join the Revolution, Pick Up The Broken Way

…just for today — DO. NOT. WORRY. “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” Matt6:34MSG
Just for today: Be a prayer warrior–not a panicked worrier. You either leave your worries with God . . . or your worries will make you leave God. 
Worry is just the facade of taking action — when prayer really is. Keep breathing deep and give your worries to God — He’ll give you His peace.

[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
