It is so good and refreshing to be back here after an unexpected 2-week break… I’ve missed connecting and sharing in this space. Sometimes life forces us to stop everything and dig deep to connect with the roots of our faith. To rest in hope and face challenges in the quiet space of solitude.
I’ve been so grateful for those who have offered attentive kindness. For dear friends who have listened with a compassionate heart. For prayers and encouragement to soak in the stillness and wait with expectation…for God to meet me.
Even in the waiting, our heart is often moved to step out of our own circumstances and share a simple kindness with another. Sometimes the best drenching of our soul occurs in the pouring out to another. Nothing grand or weighty. Just a simple kindness.
The kind that says:
“I see you.”
“You’re not alone.”
The kind that wakes us and shakes us out of our tattered selves and calls us to breathe deep and exhale all that is beyond our control. So we can offer tenderness, compassion, and generosity. To one whose need is as great as our own.
The kind that pauses life’s challenges long enough to glimpse goodness. And the kind that opens a window to a fresh perspective.
To believe in mankind.
To embrace tomorrow
And to hope in God….again~“A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.” Proverbs 11:25 Click To Tweet
