Excerpt of the Day:
When you hold your dreams with open hands, you let them breathe, grow, and have life. This can be scary because living things move, change, and take shapes we can’t predict or control.

But what good is a dream if it doesn’t grow along with us?”
~”When Your Dream Begins to Change” by Emily Freeman at Chatting at the Sky

Verse of the Day:
“Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.”
~Heb 12:2

Poem of the Day:
“I am pieces of quotes
From my favorite books
Stitched together by
Song lyrics
And I am glued together by
Midnight conversations
And the sweet taste of coffee
And I have the tendency
To fall apart suddenly

And I need you to somehow
Be okay with this
Because I am created by
The souls who are brave enough
To gather all my tattered pieces
And put me back together

And oh God how I would love to be whole again”
~Amanda Katherine Ricketson

Lyrics of the Day:
“It ain’t like midnight and cigarette smoke
It ain’t like watered down whiskey and coke
I guess some things just don’t mix like you hoped
Like me and you
And diamond rings and old barstools”
~ “Diamond Rings & Old Barstools” by Tim McGraw

Verse of the Day:
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful”
~Heb 10:23

Excerpt of the Day:
“One of my deepest core beliefs is that we find God most often in the raw and human moments of our lives, that God doesn’t differentiate between sacred-and-secular for us. All of our work, all of our life, can honour God. Our very regular lives can be altars for meeting with the truth of Love. In fact, those human moments are the sacred moments – birth, grief, work, death, suffering, sex, joy, laundry, all of it. When we feel most human, God hides in plain sight.”
~Sarah Bessey in “Hold Fast

~Heb 4:6

Quote of the Day:
“I swear to you, there are divine things more beautiful than words can tell”
~Walt Whitman

Excerpt of the Day:
“Every single night when you lay your head down on your pillow, you’re faced with yourself. Your dreams, wishes, and goals. Don’t let the fears, worries, and struggles of your everyday life defer you from becoming who you’ve always wanted to be. Now there’s a reason I keep saying who and not what. Because what is physical but who is not.What can be taken away from you. Whocan never be taken from you. Who you are is determinate solely on you.”
~ “My Why” by Hannah N

~Heb 6:19

Quote of the Day:
“In the words of friends these two desires ( adventure & intimacy)  come together in us all as a longing to be in a relationship of heroic proportions.”
~John Eldridge (Sacred Romance p. 18)

Lyrics of the Day:
“Deliver my heart with the
Pieces and parts of me left
Every last day seemed to carry the weight
A life time
Watch from the ground
As the gold fluttered down from the sky

Sweet sun
Send me the moon
Empty the skies out
Bringing me one step closer to you
Send it soon
And I will breathe in, breathe out
Until you come in and out
Of view”
~“Send Me the Moon” by Sara Bareilles
