What May Flowers brought… beautiful

believe it: God hears the prayers of parents. Thank you for this, Max Lucado
We’ve marked some of our favorite, best-selling items down to unbelievable prices to move our overstock. We want to continue to order more product from the artisans we support around the globe and that means we need to sell!
I am all in here with Kristen, and am on the board of Mercy House Global, and togESTHER — we are the Esther Generation — called for such a time as this, right where we are, to change the world for our sisters: because every woman matters.
so let’s continue from where we left off last week?
This is episode 2 of an ongoing series called How to Read the Bible that explores the origins, content, and purpose of the Bible. so good

a lesson on love: “you feel it when you help somebody up”
realigning our behavior with the truth of God’s Word — good, good words here, thank you, Priscilla Shirer
Post of the week from these parts here:
…in a loud, megaphone world, kinda thinking that this may quietly, profoundly reshape everything about what matters the most: real love & true success…. (and yeah, I’ve watched the Farmer’s video too many beautiful times, if that’s even possible?)
The Gut Honest Truth about the Real Law of the Farm & Love & Success: Only Broken Fields Yield
What Mercy Did for Me – great one to have on repeat…
…so for today, all day? 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
We can do this 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.
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.
