All that I have sown {Week 9}





Embracing the dare to live fully right where I am.

  • Bittersweet feelings: today we are moving out of our apartment. The end of an era.
  • A new stage beginning
  • Money saved
  • The house hunt begun
  • Trusting it to God
  • Hudson’s honest question. I said we would have to pray and ask God for a house and Hudson replied, “But what if he says no?” Isn’t that the question in all our hearts? So I explained about faith. Maybe God will say “yes”, but if not, it’s for a reason.
  • Child-like honesty
  • Reading Organized Simplicity again
  • Ruthless against clutter
  • Uncomfortable about how much trash we produce; thinking about ways to be more environmentally conscience 
  • “Keep nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful,” William Morris, Interior Design (via Tsh Oxenreider, Organized Simplicity)
  • The first defense against greed: generosity
  • Giving away fabric to friends (anybody want some?)
  • My friend Caroline
  • A beautiful day in the sun
  • Light breezes whisper through the trees
  • The smell of mown grass
  • The gift of one more day, each one is so precious
  • Brian, my husband, my life’s partner, my best friend, my handsome love
  • His spontaneous gift to me: a Baby G (from the G-Shock series). An awesome sports watch!
  • Couch to half marathon training plan
  • Running again. Air in my lungs. The burn.
  • Second run SO much better than the first
  • There is hope for the future
  • Friends helping us move
  • Organization
  • My parents, so generous
  • Guest posting at Sacred Mundane; thank you Kari!
  • Inching toward spring; so close now!
  • This list. Before the end of this year (2012) I will have written my One Thousand Gifts
