Written to our Hearts {24 August}

Every week we share the harvest of intentional living by sharing a simple moment that has touched us or that has pointed us to the bigger picture. These moments from last week were like letters written to our hearts:

“…an off-road scramble and full tilt creek hike before long.  careful gazes
admire the millipede, darting fish and shimmered stones below,
and feathered webs atop the canopy of trees.  silt-stained legs and
soaked shirts evidence exploratory missions deep.”
Streams Make Glad from So Much Shouthing So much laughter

” Later we floated around on the lazy river where one sentence ran through my mind on a loop: “My life is awesome.” Then I thought about Matt sitting in his office on the first full day of school in his new role as the dean of students. I thought about how busy he must have been preparing for all the issues and challenges of the year to come. And here I was participating in an activity that has “lazy” in its title. Gratitude doesn’t even begin to describe what I felt in that moment.Lessons from a Lazy River from Diapers, Coupons and Bills

“For a split second I imagined myself flying away to places unknown, adventures unseen.

I’ve always wanted to pick up and fly at moments notice. To someplace where I can earn a stamp in my passport, where I have to speak a foreign language, eat exotic treats, and…” Fly Away Home from Redhead Reverie

“… The cracking has happened again and again over the years. First steps and big words and new babies and laughter and tears have sent fissures ripping through my heart, endlessly. …” Cracked from The Miller Mix

“…There is a river that plays peek-a-boo with the highway in a section of Arkansas.  It beckons each time I pass by.  Yesterday I stopped and walked alongside it for a while. There I found peace.” Peace by the River from Achieving Clarity
