LOVE:We all need to know that we belong to each other — whether we are city folk, farm folk, whatever folk.

No matter where people live, work … no matter what we believe … we all belong to each other. And in a hurting world, that can make all the difference.

Waiting for the right thing, the right time — can feel like things are going wrong. And Hope can feel so much like hurt.

This has been one of the hardest springs of our lives.

This is meant for someone right now, a lifeline in the midst of hard times:

June 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.

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…Sunday rolling in and things may be looking big & hard & a bit impossible right now. But there’s this: “Jesus replied, ‘You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.'” John 13:7

When it looks overwhelming, understand that He stands in the midst doing something that you’ll understand someday.

When it’s hard to understand His ways, stand on His promises.
When it’s hard to trace His hand — trust His heart.

Trust: your days are is unfolding in His hands, He’s got you, He’s got a plan, He understands you, upholds you, and underneath everything today — are His everlasting arms.

[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
