a beautiful story: the hospice for dying animals

A Mennonite Family. A daughter who needs a heart transplant. 6 months to 2 year recovery at a city hospital. 250 Km from home.

So the whole family is packing up to go.

You can’t imagine how my heart split over this one.

We have a lot in common. But we don’t always notice it…

“I am not hiding”: At 3 years old, Haley Moss was diagnosed with autism.

Doctors informed her parents of all the limitations she would face. They didn’t listen. Today, she’s thriving as a lawyer — and sees autism as something that makes her unique.

people really do care: maybe we can find a way to make room this weekend too?!?

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.

 Want the gift of light breaking into all the broken places, into all the places that feel kinda abandoned? 

These pages are for you. It’s possible — abundant joy is always possible, especially for you.

Break free with the tender beauty of The Broken Way & Be The Gift

…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
by God
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
till Glory
has the last word.

[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.
