But — this is the crazy that we’re up to.
So, fair warning:

Don’t Read this. Unless You Want the Wild of Living by Faith (Or: One of the Craziest Things We Have Ever Done & I’m Kinda Terrified)

on repeat this week: Counting Every Blessing

Others may not understand you
But you have One who stands with you, for you,
And laid down His life for you because He wanted, needed, had to be with you.

Others may not really get you,
But you have One who left everything
to get to you.

Others may think you’re too much
But you have One who could never have
too much of you —
and only wants more of you.

[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.
