I vividly remember that one moment with all of my children. When the line between time and space didn’t exist, and all was right with the world as we knew it. When they were young and gushing with the ability to imagine and dream, and their list of to-do’s involved only living in the moment because the pleasure of that moment was worth every ounce of energy spent.
For my boys, it was as simple as spreading a sheet out on the tile floor to catch a dumped, oversized bucket of Legos® or Playmobil® pieces. For my daughter, it was clearing away any and all obstructions to creating an expansive zoo of Littlest Pets®.
Their passionate creations stood and morphed for days on end. This was their white-space where God whispered his unique design into their thoughts and imaginations. This was their place of “being.”
I marveled at their meticulous detail and patience to create and thrive among infinite possibilities. The only thing that mattered was “just this one thing.” Their hearts were at peace and in sync with the desire of God’s heart for them.Nothing can deter passion when passion pulses with intention.

How many times I look back at those precious, life-breathing moments as opportunities to tuck wisdom into my own heart. Because too often I allow the yearning voice of passion to be stifled by the demanding cry of responsibility. All to often, my passions are buried in the dry desert sand instead of sprouting life in the soil of intention.
Perhaps that’s why I find myself at home in fresh markets.
Have you been there?
Is there just one thing that sends adrenaline bursting from your core at the very thought or mention?
What is it that has the ability to breathe life into your soul because you know you were created for “just this one thing?”
Oh for the love of just this one thing!
“Just this one thing” is the heart behind Fresh Market Friday.
♥A gathering place which invites each of us to display and share our creative passions and intentional endeavors.
♥A green space bustling with energy, growth and fresh ideas.
♥A community where everyone belongs and takes joy in each other’s unique and God-given talents.
So my encouragement to you is dare to dream and step deep into imagine. When God whispers your unique passion, do more than just listen. Make time to explore and give yourself permission to plan and design. Cover up the clocks and tuck away the time pieces. Silence the phone and the nagging voices of defeat.
Offer passion your best intention. Plant these seeds into your own heart. And then do it again, and again…for as long as it takes. This is where we find peace and contentment-where all is right with the world. And where our hearts are in sync with the deepest desires of our Creator.
Visit this place each week and share what makes your heart pulse and your adrenaline flow.
