WHOA!!!! Jesus in you takes my breath away 

Thank you, thank you,

One Thousand Gifts

Joy is actually possible, right where you are.

Life is too short to do anything but truly savor it — to count all the ways you are truly loved.

What if Brokenness is the Path into the Abundant Life?

on repeat this week: Alive and Breathing


[ Print’s FREE here: ]

Maybe we just need to hear it & remember in the midst of all the noise and a new week coming:

What was intended to tear you apart — God intends it to set you apart. What has torn you — God makes a thin place to see glory. The places where you’re torn to pieces can be thin places where you touch the peace of God.

God is never absent, never impotent, never distant. You can never be undone. No matter what intends to harm you? God’s arms have you. You cannot be undone.

And we could feel it right now — His everlasting arms underneath of us…and all the people say their brave Amen.

[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.
