[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…yeah, all those dangling ads about how to find the best bargains today, about where to look for the best clearance prices, about how to hunt down the best buys — and we’ve just been given this Gift that’s more than a miracle, a Gift that costs you nothing & will carry you through everything, the Gift that murmurs that you are safe in Him & held by Him & strengthened through Him, the Gift that‘s better than any sale you could hunt down, the Gift that makes you the richer by the sharing of it.

It’s quite a thing that there’s no great deal to hunt down or look for or seek out right now, just to seek more of His Presence, the Gift that deals you rest & grace & deepest peace.

Really wise men & women never stop looking for God —
And because your really wise God is love — He never stops looking for you.

It’s quite a thing to simply sit in the quiet today & just feel profoundly found.

[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.
