    Wise Words.

    Hope – from my neighbor’s yard yesterday evening Sunday morning I had the privilege of hearing a sermon that moved me to tears. I came home and wrote my pastor* an email: “Today’s service – as well as last week’s – was a welcome respite for me.

    Words in the Wild.

    spotted this afternoon at Lululemon I’m always a sucker for a good store window selfie. I couldn’t resist this one. and I consider myself blessed to have multiple people in my life who tick every single one of those boxes (y’all know who you are!)
