Um. New Month? Fresh start?
Uh —- how do we get back to parts of a life that exists somewhere behind us?
I can NOT get this story out of my head — it’s literally changing my life:
No Need You Have Will Exhaust God: Philippians 4:18–20
Because actual lives depend on it.
Right now, we all desperately need to be the gift to each other. To stand together in solidarity—FOR each other—knowing that an act of kindness, giving it forward, can be more powerful than the spread of any pandemic, more powerful sword in starting movements that move us all toward Love.
Could there be a more beautiful way to live your one life in times like these?

On Repeat this Week: He Shall Reign
…as you look into the coming week, remember — there will still be love when the worst happens and when the hope doesn’t happen, there will still be love when everything’s crumbling and there will be enough love to rebuild, there will be enough love to keep breathing, to keep believing, to keep being and being brave.
Fear can be what we feel — but brave is what we do.
There’s enough Brave in us to believe that though the world is broken, there is light getting in…
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
