Online links worth a read:

You Don’t Have to Make Your Bed to Write a Book by Donald Miller “It’s important then that we wake up and tackle our calling while the sun is still coming up.”  (Pretty sure this article was written specifically for me on this very day.)

How a 92-year-old Woman Taught Me the Real of Value of My Right-Now Work by Marian Vischer  “Because she valued those in her care, she valued the tasks required to care for them.” 

When Harshness Tempts You to Hide by Melissa Hirshburg “I look at the white and gold bracelet, and the gold reminds me of the one golden talent the servant was given. It reminds me how we must not compare what we have to what others have been given. It reminds me to have hope and faith in small beginnings and take steps forward a day at time.”


From my heart this week:

Put Aside Your Regime (an invitation to Autumn Mantras that Won’t Deplete) “So forward I go, but a little defiantly. If I must march I will, but I won’t be driven by the schedule that beckons be from task to task to task to task.”

I am not the Main Character You’ve always known there is something greater at work here than your tiny, minuscule being passing through this crazy magnificent universe.”

From the archives:

Holy Loitering  Take a walk. Sip your coffee slow. Let the breeze blow through your hair. Laugh long. Breathe deep. It is not a competition to see who can get to Christmas break the most frazzled, worn out, and “accomplished”.
