I want to be known as a kind person. Kindness is one of my goals. I’ve tasted unkindness and decided that it’s something I never want to share.
I’m a deep thinker. Sometimes my mind trails off in wonder over something that many overlook or consider ordinary. Today I just wanted to share some of the things that I contemplated over the past week to see if anyone else ever thinks about these things too. I don’t think we take time to stop and be curious often enough. I’ve found that the more I travel and wander, the more I wonder. Being full of wonder is often seen as exclusively a childhood experience, but I think adults need it too–we all have an inherent need to be wonder-full. It’s that wonder that can and should project us towards compete wonder of God and His goodness, which results in praise. And praise is how we fight our battles.
The description of the book reads as follows:
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes a story of long-lost love and its redemption in future generations. Continue reading “The Love Letter”
Okay y’all I’m so sorry this wasn’t posted this morning. As you’ll probably have noticed if you follow me on Instagram, I went out of town this weekend. I just got back in town after 2 am, and stayed at my friend’s house instead of going all the way home, so I just got home about 2 hours ago and have been unpacking. I started writing this on the ride home last night but ended up falling asleep! Anyway, some friends of mine and I made a trip to Richmond, Virginia for another friend’s birthday party. We stayed at her house and had ourselves a marvelous time. The birthday party was held about 30 minutes away from her house, and we had so many adventures just getting to where the party was held that I just have to tell! Of course, there was a spiritual parallel to be seen if we looked.
…to tell you that I’m currently out of town with spotty internet connection and a glitchy keyboard, so I am unable to watch church and upload my notes today. I will post them by the end of the week. Thank you for your understanding and patience! Meanwhile, you can check out last week’s notes here.
Those of you who have known/followed me for a little while will know that Lisa Bevere‘s book Girls with Swords had a massive impact on my life (I wrote about its impact here, here, and here). Those of you who do know me ask me about this story ALL THE TIME so this post is for y’all. And for me and my sanity, so I don’t have to keep repeating myself.😂
