"Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." --Walt Disney Company (also, Hayley Morgan...the girl who never figured out how to leave well enough alone ☺️)
So grateful to have a little life in the house. Every May I look forward to my grandmother's peonies blooming, I could cut 20 bouquets and it wouldn't make a dent in her bunch! They feel like a crazy abundant luxury. What is your small something that feels luxurious? So interested to know!
Just a friendly reminder to take a deep breath. You can rest. Sometimes rest looks like reading or playing, sleeping or laughing. Rest is redemptive and restorative--it's God's way of reminding us that He does quite well enough without our help. It's our own built in reset button (joy comes in the morning!). It's manna that comes like clockwork. If you fight rest, maybe spend time asking God why? I spent close to a decade learning to rest, and it was the an integral part of me seeing myself rightly in God's world. I am tiny and He is mighty. He is power, but I need constant pitstops and refueling...and that's ok.
I cannot wait to show y'all the #wildandfreebook trailer (we get to premier it to the public at #influenceconf!!!). The Zondervan team was above and beyond on bringing the vision of Wild and Free to a 3D moment. I hope it will help put some flesh on our heart behind the words! I'm grateful, grateful, grateful. Now--hopping on a plane home to my boys and headed straight out of town on a family road trip. Life is FULL but sweet.
Traveling today and this has been stuck in my head all evening--I am not in distress, but it just reminds me of the power of God and the upsidedown-ness of His ways. "Therefore be of good courage, and rest quietly in the Lord. God can make the sun rise in the west if he pleases, and make the source of distress the channel of delight." Spurgeon
