Pick up Be The Gift & live the life you’ve longed to this year

on repeat: Good Grace

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…so this is what we’re doing here today: simply being grateful for that one small thing… & one more small thing… & one more small thing — just taking back ground one grateful step at a time till the battle is WON.

Gratitude wins our wars.

Because gratitude isn’t only a celebration when good things happen; Gratitude’s a declaration that God is good no matter what happens.

Today, listen to your absurdly glorious life.
Listen to the holy heart of your one sacred life.
You need to take time to listen to your life —
so you can make the life you need.

Life’s not about growing in status— it’s always about growing your soul. Be small and love large: because getting to be present to love your people’s hearts is a great gift.

Let’s be still long enough to drink down all this ordinary glory and hear your heart keep beating how all is grace.

[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.
