never doubt: the power of one caring adult
a beautiful story: the hospice for dying animals

Post of the week from these parts here
Saying what you really want — is really hard. Deeply vulnerable. But maybe it’s what you just really need to sit with today — what you really want:
come alive…dry bones
MAY is here!
Maybe in this new month, we all just need the gift of Joy… a bit of Hope? To stand together — FOR each other — knowing that an act of kindness, giving it forward, can be more powerful than any sword in starting movements that move us all toward Love.
These pages are for you. It’s possible — abundant joy is always possible, especially for you.
And if you grab a copy of Be The Gift? We will immediately email you a link to a FREE gift of THE WHOLE 12 MONTH *Intentional* Acts of Givenness #BeTheGIFT Calendar to download and print! Just let us know that you ordered Be The Gift over here.
You only get one life to love well.
on repeat this week: Church, take me back
…what you need to know today:
Your arms may be weary carrying
what’s breaking your heart,
but you are held and carried
so close to His heart
that the beat of His passion
is reviving yours.
Where you want a do-over,
Jesus covers over you with unerasable grace.
Where you can’t repent enough,
Jesus says: “Enough. It is finished.”
Where you feel like a failure who’s messed everything up,
Jesus’ love is unfailing and underneath everything are His arms that will never let you down.
You are a story
who has to be told
who so believes in you
He moved right into you
and keeps writing hope on all
your impossible walls,
who keeps raising the sun over you because He’s intent on raising His dream for you,
who keeps you,
so you can keep on,
and who will not let your story end
has the last word.
