anyone else in need of a long, quiet walk this weekend?


kinda the best: come see who crashed this outdoor orchestra performance

What May Flowers brought… beautiful 

family is celebrating an app – which helped to save their daughter’s life

so worth the read: Make two lists 

had to share: a story of one truly inspiring woman who did what she could

some good words here: If you’re feeling weak or defeated, try this.  

glory, glory, glory

she created a powerful anti-bullying video to share her story so others wouldn’t feel alone

“I want people to learn that it is not okay to bully or be a bully because you are hurting other people.”

“I always tell people I rescued Ted and Ted rescued me” this dog is saving his life

a most selfless way to keep honoring her daughter who passed away from cancer #TheBrokenWay #BeTheGIFT

“I know how to say thank you, but I don’t know how to express that…”

Community surrounds family caring around the clock for their son. #BeTheGIFT #TheBrokenWay

so? this is kinda really remarkable? he’s been a postman for 60 years…  

it’s more than about football here — it’s about life: “every time we get the opportunity to do something special like this, it turns out to be a greater experience for us than maybe for the kid”

believe it: God hears the prayers of parents. Thank you for this, Max Lucado 

Mercy House Global’s Summer Sale 7-Day Event Is Here!

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

The Face Of Refugees: We Cropped Out The Context of a Refugee Camp To Focus on Individuals and The Results Are Breathtakingso beautiful 

making God’s love known to people who have never heard

because there’s times when we’ll be pushing through the really hard stuff…

he didn’t hesitate in a time of need:

an umpire saves a young woman from jumping off bridge and prays for her

Outpouring raises funds for Christian music dad who lost wife after childbirth

“Nate is a believer in Jesus. We have grieved in hope, but we believe Meg is with Jesus and one day we will be too, so that is how we grieve with hope.”

the power of our touch: because everyone needs to be hugged…

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

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

What Mercy Did for Megreat one to have on repeat…

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…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.

[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
