A special thought of love right before Valentine’s Day:
Love lets go of it’s ultimatums — to ultimately hold a person Ready to let go of pain of the tearing apart of what was. Ready to take the ripped scraps, stitch them together, to make a sail from what’s dead and catch the wind ahead. Ready to take wind blowing in beyond my control, and just make water of it. I’ve been thirsty too long and I am desperate to drink. Sometimes letting go is how to find out He holds. Ann Voskamp, When the Wind Blows and Love Tries to Hold On

~How are you doing on your focus word for the year? Can you find the word “Affirm” in this word cloud by Bonnie Grey @ Faith Barrista?

~Still loving the images and languid pace of Winter’s description by David Arms:
Just like no two types of trees grow the same leaves, no two types of trees grow their branches in the same formation. And when the trees are bear, the intricacy of these patterns is beautifully displayed against the grey skies of winter. ~David Arms

~It really is time because “There is no time left for hesitating, protecting our hearts, or living in fear of doing the “wrong” thing, not pleasing others, rocking the boat. That way of living simply is not working. It’s an old paradigm whose days are numbered.” ~Alia in the Inner Bliss Blog post you will appreciate… Breathe and Read this post. Breathe and Read

~Ok, I have put on my big girl smile and adjusted to the announcement that April is the end of Picnik. Thanks to Ann Voskamp for providing these alternatives to Picnik

Saturday Digest~November 19

Seems as though a theme has emerged this week~~

say yes

From Bonnie Gray~~~God may be calling you to say “Yes” to:

  • a new relationship
  • a new job
  • an in-between time
  • seek out an opportunity
  • walk through a valley
  • make small or big changes
  • a new way of being
  • a new season of life…

… I have learned to listen and follow a softer, quieter voice: God’s.

His voice is always gentle, encouraging, eternity’s-worth-of-chances, loving, kind, strengthening, seeing the best in me, delighted with me.

~Saying “Yes” to Walking in the Way of Love
The Holy Spirit presses us toward the realm of grace, where we are transformed into seeing opportunities to love where others see wasteful sacrifice. Instead of the odor of waste, we learn to breathe deeply within God’s bouquet of grace…

~~And…during your second cup of cider (really, cider is best for today), consider building trust muscles.

The whole concept of “Yes, and…” boils down to one word:
trust. ~Brian Kessler
