Five Things | What's Soothing My Soul Right Now

Five things about what's soothing my soul right now. #fivethings



For what feels like the longest summer, I've been in a sort of transitional period. It's been one of those seasons of life that makes me feel anxious. Like I'm waiting for something to happen, but we all know how I struggle with patience. I keep going back to Lara Casey's message about the seasons and how we need to be intentional in all four - stillness, growth, hard work, and rest - but it's so hard. I want the hard work and growth all the time!

Simple Gratitude | 138

I'm sharing my #gratefulheart on the blog. What are you grateful for today? #gratitude #feelingthankful



Last week and the weekend was a whirlwind filled with lots of tears, strolls down memory lane, hurricane scares, impromptu family meals, and all the emotional things. So many times in the last few months, I've thought about discontinuing these posts, feeling that they are too redundant and not interesting enough for a lot of people to read. Then, things like the death of a loved one happen, and I'm reminded that even in the midst of loss, there are so many things to be grateful for. And so we continue on.
