May we find a way to gather up all the competition and comparison we carry in our hearts and toss them into the lap of God. May we have the courage receive what he gives in return – compassion, generosity, and a light heart.
Enjoy your weekend, friends. Here are a few good reads along the way:
- New But Good by Ellen for The Sweetwater Blog because this short glimpse into her life as a mom of a new middle schooler reminds me not to be so anxious about my girls growing up.
- I’m Sure It’s Fine by Shannan Martin for FlowerPatch Farm Girl because in the midst of this crazy, heartbreaking, confusing world, it’s good to remember that some days are for “kissing life on the forehead.” (A phrase like that you don’t forget. She’s full of them.)
- Living Our Lives as a Work of Art, a podcast with Kathi Lipp because I enjoyed talking with her and her co-host so much and it could be some nice company and encouragement for you as you fold your towels.
- This two minute fifty-one second video because sometimes it feels like our responsibilities and our passions can’t coexist. But maybe they can and perhaps, they must.
