from this week’s Lenten blog post: How To Slay Fear

I’m not crying…you’re crying
ok, I’m crying – what precious brotherly love!

retiring from the national park service at age 100?!
standing ovation, Ms. Betty!!

yes, my beautiful friend, yes!

do you journal or write? want to start?
this conversation about writing as a spiritual practice is so good!

his reaction? PRICELESS!

“every second a Ukranian child becomes a refugee”
what these people are doing to help, comfort, and care for those who are fleeing is just incredible!

Grace Flame

my all-time go-to candles
They smell amazing, the burn beautifully, AND…you get to make a real impact in 4 countries when you sign up for the monthly Grace Flame candle!

In addition to supporting rescued teen mothers in Kenya, your Grace Flame provides the following dignified jobs for: Artisans in India who create the hammered brass vessel, Syrian refugees who pour each candle, and a homeless community living in the USA that prints the box. 

This is so dear to my heart…I would love for you to join our Grace Flame community that is lighting a flame of hope all around the world!

Post of the week from these parts:

This is What’s On Your Horizon: How to Find Your Way Through the Hard

I hear the cracking of so many hearts: How do you walk on when you want to walk away from the parts of your life that scorch your heart? When the road goes south, how do you stay oriented to true north?

I keep searching faces, reading eyes, and my heart aches with all that I know:

When life throws you a curve, the only way through is to curve your arms around God.

The places we want out of — might be the exact places where God can most intimately get to us, to intimately be with us.

The most tender places, can be where we press most tenderly into God. Is there somewhere else we need to be more?

If you don’t want to get lost, maybe you don’t need a sign as much as you need a real dialogue with the Word and WayMaker Himself.

Though you may be in unknown territory, you always have an open door to talk to the One who knows the whole Story.

Because the way you live into question marks is to live in the nail-marked One who is the Answer.

I can’t stop thinking about my conversation with Derwin Gray – if you’ve been praying about how to be part of healing deep racial divides – Derwin is an anointed voice & this conversation is 🔥🔥🔥

all. the. tears.

what she says here about truth? pure 🔥

a snowman story that will melt your heart!

I will never ever tire of hearing the Good News
I will always be utterly in awe of the incredible unmerited GIFT of salvation.

on the stack at the farm…

Five Star recommendation – Derwin is an anointed voice & this book is so needed – a true GIFT to the church.

glory, glory, glory
just awed by the rhythms of creation

whatever you’re facing today, no matter the storm, no matter how hard or impossible it seems…
He is enough. He’s more than enough.

Lord, we come to You not because You are our last hope,
but because You are our first love.

We’re not waiting to come to You only when we think there’s nothing else we can do.

We’re coming to You before we do anything at all
because waiting on You is wisest of all.

We trust You to work all this out in Your good time —
because that will be the best time,
and You are only good
and You hold all time.

Kneeling the most lets us stand the bravest.

Today we kneel and lay our painful problems in Your hands
and thank You for the perfect peace You put in our hearts.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
