i honestly don't know what i would do without dove dark chocolate. or coke classic.
my friend lauren gave me this book the artist's way for this part on attention. there have been some painful things in my family lately and it's been tempting to be overwhelmed. but this passage was utterly beautiful....that the way we make it through these trying times, from past to future, is to be exceedingly present. i know this is a topic touched on by many, but there is this one line that made me stop. "She stood it by standing knee-deep in the flow of life and paying close attention." yes. this is a paramount lesson for me to learn. it's startling how different my minutes have been weighed and perceived as i take this mindset. sometimes even just stopping, breathing deeply and remembering His nearness is all the refreshment i could need.
i started re-reading the sacred romance by john eldredge and brent curtis. it really speaks to some of the things i've been pondering lately...does it make you smile how He weaves your path?
