one

One day at a time… One step at a time… One breath  at a time… Gratitude has a way  of living in the awareness of what is in the moment we’re in…. …and not just “what”, but “Who”. The Bible says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” So thankful for that gift that trumps all else. Reminding myself (and those who need to hear…) of simple truths today ❤   Blessings~ Heather  “Devote yourselves toRead more

Solid as a Rock

  “The grass withers and the flower falls,  but the Word of our God endures forever.” Isaiah 40:8 I sat in the sunshine yesterday and enjoyed reading and getting some fresh air. Every once in a while a wind would blow and leaves would float from the trees on the hill where we were, down to the water. As those leaves floated on by I thought of how quickly the seasons change. Just about that time, it was the sweetestRead more

Thankful Thursday

    Talk about a beautiful sunrise. Yesterday morning, I left the house while it was still dark and got to see the sun peek out over a hill and then slowly rise. I loved seeing the warm tones to the east, and the bright blues to the west.   It was good to see wide open spaces. Like so many folks, I love the song, “Wide open Spaces” by the Dixie Chicks. My girl and I have belted thatRead more

Thankful Thursday

      As always, there are lots of things to be thankful for. This week for me it was time.  Am out on Fall break, so I have two and 1/2 weeks of spending time as I best see fit. I mean, we all get to make decisions about how we spend the 24 hours we have, but I have a lot less in my structured schedule and am so enjoying space to breathe a bit and fill theRead more

a daily harvest

  “Stepping back and harvesting the gifts of the day. Reflecting on its fruits, giving thanks.  Knowing the difference between holding and grasping, needing and wanting, brings peace.” ~ Sister Stan I love this quote by Sister Stan. It’s so good to step back a bit and reflect  at the end of the day. It almost feels like a big exhale– an  often quite necessary letting down. And then, then after the exhale, well, there’s more room and space forRead more

little ripples

So, some mornings are more full than others. This morning was one of those for me. I had a few meetings (which come with lots of paperwork where it’s oh-so-legally-necessary to dot all the i’s and cross the t’s.)  To complicate my day  a bit further, our school system has changed computer programs (fun, fun!) which requires a lot more energy and time and focus to be able to complete the necessary forms. I was running a bit late thisRead more

ahorita

today. now. Presently. Present-ly. at this moment. for now ahorita this moment in time in real time here,  now ahorita…ahora means “now”, and ahorita literally translated means, “little now”…the little moment that we have right now…ahorita. so thankful for the gift of the now, no matter how oh-so-ordinary it is… Just a reminder to (open up my eyes to) see the beauty of what’s right in front of me.
