This Weekend~unHurry~Can you Do It?

“Hurry rushes toward the destination and fails to enjoy the journey” ~Alan Fadling in his book An Unhurried Life*

A sudden winter ice storm caused me to do it today as the roads became slick with frozen reminders that we are not in charge.

Perhaps the early sunset will cause you to do it.

Perhaps a cold, or other wintertime illness with cause you to do it.

Or a traffic jam,a long line,

Or a brief encounter with beauty:


Whether or not it is intentional or unintentional, might you take time to take your time this weekend?

Might you unHurry?



There will be time to jump on the conveyor belt of busy…

But, perhaps, this weekend, especially today when many flags will fly at half-staff,

it is a good time to engage in the unHurry, in the uneventfully vital.

Sit and watch/Stand and see/kneel and pray/

unHurry for a respite.


I first learned about Fadling’s book from this post at Domestic Serenity

This Weekend~Easy Weekend Activity~ Continue to Savor


Take a little time this weekend to Savor the landscape of your weekend.

Perhaps you will:

Look intently at a sunrise, cloud formation, sunset, or star-filled sky

Listen to the sounds of laughter, nature, conversation, or music around you

Feel the warmth of the blanket, the softness of a hand holding yours, the cushion of grass under your bare feet

Breathe in the aroma of food cooking, a candle burning, a cup of steaming chamomile tea

Taste the last bite of a good meal, the coolness of ice, a sweet treat that might be waved away

Thank Him for all of these blessings that arise from Him…
And the Lord smelled a savor of rest…Genesis 8:21*

What will you Savor this weekend?

After each act of creation in Genesis 1, “God saw that His new creation was beautiful and good.” When creation is nearly complete, God not only declares it “good” but is described as “savoring its beauty and appreciating its goodness” (Genesis 1:31) Ecclesiastes 7:19,

Veterans Day

“To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan.” ~Abraham Lincoln

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed legislation in 1954 to change the name to Veterans Day as a way to honor those who served in all American wars. The day honors military veterans with parades and speeches across the nation. A national ceremony takes place at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

This Weekend~Easy Weekend Activity~November 8~Postpone


Perhaps it is that I/we spend so much time avoiding procrastination that the act of avoiding it, in itself becomes a spiraling kind of procrastination. Perhaps all the “to-do” and “to-don’t” lists are a form of distraction procrastination. And the non-attainment of my/our list completion ushers in guilt and frowns toward myself/ourselves.

Well, perhaps, for a short while this weekend, just give in to it. Make an intentional decision to postpone that decision, that chore, that assignment, that activity.

And…just…for a moment…savor

There will be plenty of time to re-enter the spinning wheel.

Midweek Question of the Week~November 6~Harvest

What are you harvesting in this season?

sorry out to live

“So maybe the way to still be left standing at the end of the day, when you get to the end of everything, is to never stop breaking free from the fences of noise, to love the expanses of solitude that you carry on the inside, because the truth of it is that stillness with God is always a matter of focus not of circumstances. That is all there is: Staying still with Him, still with Him.
Because no harvest of holiness, of happiness, was ever reaped by anyone who didn’t make a field inside of themselves to be alone long with God.” ~Ann Voskamp


Additional questions to consider

Monday words for the Soul~Savor

Courtesy of the Brave Girls Club:

Dear Persevering Girl,

It might not look like it, it might not seem like it, but that BIG THING that you are working on that you ahve been workin on for SO LONG, that you have put our heart and soul and wishes as prayers into, it really is happening. It might be going slower than you want it to go, but it IS HAPPENING.

Be inside of THIS PART of the journey today. What will happen when you get there? To that place you are working to be?

Once you are there, you will look back and wish you would have savored each moment of getting there, because there’s so much fabulousness wrapped up inside of every step of difficult, long journeys. So many lessons, so many miracles, so many new and wonderful people that show up exactly when they are supposed to show up. So many tears and hard days. So much FEELING. You can’t REALLY feel the good stuff unless you know what the bad stuff feel like. Good days feel SOOOOO beautiful after a string of really hard days, don’t they? You sure wouldn’t appreciate them as much had you not had that string of difficulty. Life is so cool that way.

Keep going. Don’t you DARE give up. You are closer than you know. Look around and see just how far you’ve come.

You are absolutely phenomenal. And THAT is the truth

You are SO LOVED.

a word from The Sponsor~November 3~Believe

Open the eyes of their hearts, and let the light of Your truth flood in. Shine Your light on the hope You are calling them to embrace. Reveal to them the glorious riches You are preparing as their inheritance. Ephesians 1:18 VOICE
