Present is choosing to believe that your own life is worth investing deeply in, instead of waiting for some rare miracle or fairytale.Present Over Perfect, by Shauna Niequist (via @emilypfreeman)
Except for this past weekend, April has been a quiet month for me. a month where I spent a lot of time on my own, reading, knitting, studying, listening to music and birdsong, walking. I let go a few commitments to make more room for solitude and my new church leadership roles. I tried to be disciplined about bedtime since the dark early hours are my favorite reading and study time.
I’ve been paying attention to the changing seasons, both outside, and within myself. I’m starting to see signs that this purposeful stepping back is making space for new things. A deep investment takes time. and trust.
Many thanks to Carolyn for hosting this monthly connection and to all of you for reading and being part of it.
