The ah-ha moment of realizing the difference between isolation and solitude
Dreaming for the future, not based on what I want to accomplish but who I want to become
Really loud crickets
Servant-hearted dreamers fall in love with giving their lives away. Life is simple: make life better for others with whatever you have in hand. Matthew Barnett
Blooming poppies along the road
Beauty heals, beauty nourishes, beauty restores.
A physically strong healthy heart... (and we'll get there on the emotional side)
Easy access to clean bathrooms when needed with running water and soap
Local honey and goat cheese spread on a warm, freshly baked traditional baguette
We hear the saying all the time: "don't get your hopes up." I've never liked that saying. It seems to me that we should be getting our hopes up - and keeping them up all the time. Matthew Barnett
The relief on their faces when I replied in English
This climb was much easier than the last one
A very successful shopping trip with lots of sales
Lots of reading on a rainy day
You must take the pressure off. This is essential. Pressure nearly always guarantees you will have a hard time discerning what God is saying, if you hear anything at all. Pressure clenches up your heart and soul and ties all your insides up in rubber-band knots. Even if God is shouting, it is unlikely he can get through to you because of the chaos. John Eldredge
Fresh broccoli and hummus
30 km bike ride and a full body smile
An A on my last paper
I have something to offer, I am not just a consumer of life
There will always be tension between what I do and who I am, because they run so closely together. Wayne Cordeiro
Setting boundaries and then successfully keeping them
The beauty of the mountains that catches my breath every single time
One of the best days ever - laughter, hammocks, sunshine, chatter, franglais, beauty in friendship and just being together
Wondering what the future holds and knowing without a doubt who holds the future, and trusting that.
That I am in better shape than I gave myself credit for
Voices of reason in a world of chaos
That I still have several more weeks to lean in to the untangling, the life breathing, the gifts and the beauty that is this place
We have staked it all on this - that life wins. Oh, dear friends - life wins. Life wins. Sometimes now, especially if we will pray. But life wins fully, and very soon. John Eldredge
