“There is time to learn God’s hopes and dreams and to be the hands and hearts that carry them out. There is time to nurture tender seeds, not knowing what they will become but loving them for their strange, brightly colored stems and their ability to carry your heart into wonder. There is time to make a greenhouse for God’s new life.”
“I am soon to be on my annual week of retreat which totally sucks. Being on retreat from social media, technology and work is a part of my Rule of Life; and I usually hate it. I quite like the anesthesia I have collected over the years – tools I have and use to “not feel pain.” And a retreat is an un-anesthetized week of silent reflection. It will follow a week of vacation this year, so not only will I be bored, I’ll be rested and bored. Ugh.”
