When life is hard and the edges are a bit rough, sometimes we need a little guidance finding the cozy moments.
Moments where we…
~Take time to look at the world around us and notice the smallest detail of beauty
~Mindfully savor the variety of tastes in a single day
~Recall all those who add value and joy to our life
~Listen to the sounds of our day and allow our soul to be inspired
~Choose to slow down and be present in a moment of rest
~Make space for what makes us feel warm and cozy on the inside
~Remember the abundant gifts of our week and realize this is the best of all we have
“If you start living for the smallest reasons, that’s when you know you’re really living. The smell of rain after a thunderstorm, the shades of pavements when it’s autumn, the harvest season and the unspoken competition to pick the freshest tomatoes, the mediocre midnights and the color of sunsets, the smell of bakeshops early in the morning, the frosty breeze of the fast-approaching winter, the warmth of oven when baking Christmas cookies, the thickness of paper when flipping through magazine pages, the smell of new books and new clothes and new things. When you start looking at things, really really looking, you’ll start living.” ~sunnyprims

Each week, it’s my pleasure to select one writer from the link-up to showcase on my blog for the entire week. As you know, I’m all about fresh goodness! And with so many amazing bloggers joining this community, I want to make sure Fresh Market Friday honors all who share the many areas they practice living out of a place of intention and passion.
So let me thank all of you for making this such a sweet place to gather every week as you share your passion for life and all the ways you practice living with intention! From 4 Free Fall Prints by Kaitlyn Bouchillon to 4 Ways to Connect With Your Teenager at Cord of 6…that’s the beauty of a fresh market. It offers something of value for everyone!
I’m excited to announce this week’s Featured Fresh Find is Gretchen Fleming!
Gretchen is such a voice of practical reason and insight when it comes to so many topics, including relationships. This week, she challenges us in how to exercise faithfulness and self-control in marriage. She shares a bit of her own rocky start and leaves us with encouragement to move forward with the assurance that no matter the mistakes or bumps in the road, God always has a plan to bless us in our commitment to remaining steadfast in our commitment as we allow Him to mold and shape us and our spouse.
Won’t you please visit Gretchen’s and share some Fresh Market Friday encouragement…because we all need a little encouragement!
