"The Spirit of Hurry and the Spirit of Joy cannot live in the same house."
This reminds me of those Japanese landscape paintings, can you spot the humans? We’re so little in comparison to life and nature.
You are only one person. I am only one person. I’m learning that I can’t change everything. In fact, there is a lot I cannot change. There are things I can’t fix. In fact, I can’t even fix myself. But I have me, and I have now, and I have a Lord who loves me an overwhelming amount and these things will never change. And these three things are enough to be a part of something wonderful because I have a God who works wonderful things in me and in this ever-changing place.
taking life too seriously is overrated.
the most beautiful friends.
I think I’ve said wow more times in the last six days than the past six months. I love Alaska. As soon as I saw those snowy mountains peak through the fog on my flight into Anchorage I knew for certain that I was going to spend a lot of the trip in awe. You know what’s wonderful? That you don’t have to stop being in awe ever. Pick anything. Pick anything around you and think about how it came to be. Pick the shirt that you are wearing or the picture frame on the wall or the computer you are reading this on or the cereal you had for breakfast. Pick anything and just wow for a minute with me.

"People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds."
