From Good to Great

Barb has a very good life, but she’s pondering what it takes to go from good to great.

Let Love Be Loud

I’ve been reading my morning devotional, and jotting down whatever jumps out, or resonates. Here’s this week’s favorite. When things seem all wrong, trust me anyway. I am much less interested in right circumstances than in right responses to whatever comes your way. Jesus… Continue Reading “Let Love Be Loud”

A Curated Life

In this guest post written by Collette, she shares how life is not made in big moments, or bold pronouncements, but in the small, daily moments.

To Stay Planted

My friend who I meet for coffee once a month gave me a beautiful mug. It’s a travel mug, which I didn’t have. I usually drink my coffee before leaving the house, so it’s rather liberating knowing my coffee can now travel. The box… Continue Reading “To Stay Planted”

My daughter and I went for a walk this morning. It was chilly outside, but not cold. In previous years, I’ve hibernated in winter and the cold was not my friend. It’s time to face the cold and make a space for change. Embrace… Continue Reading “Embrace the Cold”

A Faithful Following

I read a post in my Reader this morning by Mama’s Empty Nest. She doesn’t know this, but she inspires me. She’s been Blogging for 10 years, but doesn’t have a huge amount of followers. (2,000ish) To me, that’s inspiring. I’ve been Blogging for… Continue Reading “A Faithful Following”
