Post of the Week from these parts here

Winners Know How to Spell THIS Word (Because it kinda holds the meaning of life)

If real religion is to take care of orphans, throw in your heart with the hearts of orphans from our daughter’s China home — be the Father’s love to the fatherless

When your life spells out koinonia, your life writes out joy anywhere.

And maybe what we want more than anything is to spell out the real meaning of life — the abundant life. 

Because? Fellowship and Relationship is the only way navigate the waters of life.

Decode your life — and learn how to make your life spell koinonia by daring to take the Broken Way.

Or pick up Day Spring’s  Broken Way perpetual calendar  — and  take this year-long, daily journey with us, and maybe...just maybe, discover the key you’ve been missing.

there is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others

on repeat this week: Walk with You

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…in the wait, whatever you lose, don’t lose heart — you never lose what lasts forever. You’ve got to believe it: whatever is being lost momentarily, more is being gained eternally.
In the wait, if you shift the way you see — and see that the wait could make you into the person you’ve been waiting to become.

If you’re waiting on God — do what waiters do: serve.

Break free of your comfort zone and do something, touch someone, give something, help someone, pray for someone, serve someone, #betheGIFT for someone. You can’t be a world changer until you *serve.* In serving, you are served a feast of what you’re longing for. Because the One who loves you steadfastly, stood fast at the cross for you, so now stand fast for Him.

“Each of you should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms… Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God’s words; if help, let it be God’s hearty help.” 1Peter4:10 NIV, MSG.

[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.
