“It is not having what you want; it’s wanting what you've got.” |Sheryl Crow|
I’m learning that prayer is less about asking the Father for things I want Him to do for me, and more about asking Him how to be aware of Him. He’s always up to something, and it’s always good.
“I do not understand the mystery of grace— only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us.” |Anne Lamott|

When you speak your heart in trusted community, you’re no longer bound by your struggles, but refocused and carried.
“So then, let us do good to everyone.” |Galatians 6:10|
I’m learning to turn my anxious thoughts into expectant ones— to take comfort in the changing seasons, because of the rich beauty found in transition.
"Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves.” |Rainer Maria Rilke|
