“Let us not be surprised when we have to face difficulties. When the wind blows hard on a tree, the roots stretch and grow the stronger, Let it be so with us. Let us not be weaklings, yielding to every wind that blows, but strong in spirit to resist.” ~ Amy Carmichael  Read more

Thankful Thursday

So on this ‘Thankful Thursday’ I’m thankful for words. I’m thankful for words spoken that bring clarity. It’s amazing the power of words to clear the air and wash away misunderstandings when all parties have taken a deep breath before hand. Sometimes, that’s a crucial piece (for peace)—this breathing in and breathing out. Somehow, deep breaths seem to open up the ability to listen and hear a bit more.  And I’m thinking that good conversation is just that…it’s a breathingRead more

note to self…

Note to Self:  Some things—beautiful, unexpected, glorious things–– ONLY grow in the desert. Like Cacti. And blue desert flowers. And ‘resurrection plants’. Maybe the periods of drought coupled with lots of Light can cultivate unique and amazing things that are  indigenous to places you’d least expect…and not just in plants mind you <3.  I love that God has variety beyond compare and that He can use anything, anyone, any place to make things grow out of the dust. Am thinking that’sRead more

each moment

“God’s purpose is to enable me to see that He can walk on the storms of my life right now… If we have a further goal in mind, we are not paying enough attention to the present time. However, if we realize that moment-by-moment obedience is the goal, then each moment as it comes is precious.” ~ Oswald Chambers Gonna repeat that one line again and again to myself…“if we realize that moment-by-moment obedience is the goal, then each moment asRead more
