Hello sweet friends,
I’ve done two different blogs today but I wasn’t happy with either one. I’ll give it more time this week and post one of them next week. But my new mantra given to me by the Lord this very day is “Peace before productivity.”
God showed me when I start to get anxious or impatient, I am losing peace at the expense of productivity. My body tells me it is time to reprioritize and put first things first.
You know this year has been one in which I wanted to walk with the Lord more closely. My verse for 2011 is “And so I walk in the Lord’s Presence as I live here on earth.” (Psalm 116:9).
One of the first fruits that walking closer with God ought to produce is peace, not frustration, aggravation, or impatience. So friends, pray for me. Pray that I learn to let go of my agenda and live more peacefully in the moment, even if it requires that I do less.
Now it’s your turn. I’ve been curious about who you are, why you stop by, and what you’d like help with? What are your biggest needs or deepest hurts in your closest relationships? Where do you get stuck or hindered from living the life you want to live? Like me getting stuck in busyness, anxiety and impatience, what holds your heart (body and mind) in that unchanged place?
That’s all for today I’m off to pay Uncle Sam! Hope you got a refund.
Take a moment to respond. I’d love to hear from you.

It’s exhausting just to be there for a few hours, but so much fun. I’m especially enjoying Amaya as she remembers us…
Morning friends, This week I’m in sunny beautiful California. Until tomorrow I’m hanging out in Monterey, right on the ocean. This is one of the most beautiful places in the world and it has been good for my soul and spirit and body to be here. There is something so restorative to being in God’s…
Question: My children are constantly complaining about everything. Nothing I do or give them is ever enough. I just had a birthday party for my ten year old and after he opened all his gifts, he said “is that all?” I’m so frustrated with their attitudes and greediness. What can I do? Marcy in IL…
