  1. A hard season in my life brought me rest and the realization that my time being present in others lives was my life’s calling. Yes there are chores to do, places to go but to be Jesus to the world meant giving of myself. I think this is the hardest thing for us to do. Life is run by schedules and appointments and to do lists. Yet it should be run by His agenda. In the flesh not possible, in His grace He makes it happen.

  2. This is a subject is one many women struggle with. I am one who learned the hard way to stop, slow down, and make time for myself without feeling guilty. I was so good at looking out for others, but not myself. A chronic illness has left me in unable to “do” so many things, but I now have more peace and happiness than when I was a super-mum who accomplished way more than I do now. Our Father in Heaven does not want us to be run by our diaries… or anything else but by HIS Holy Spirit. Thank you for the reminder to love one another – as ourselves. Very encouraging thank you.
