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

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:

“We’re in a season right now.

A sliding-down-a-muddy-hill faster than you can grab hold of something, hold-onto-your-hat, pray-and-keep-praying season. I’ve got a stomach ache from the nerves. I’m talking with God while I make rounds through the house. And I’m trying my best to really, truly be with my kids, rather than zone them out while I float around in the adult debris. ”  Well Make It from {Just} Lenae

“If you’ve grown up with a loving, caring father, you may not be able to understand how a ‘just because’ present can be unfamiliar and overwhelming and heart-filling.Fatherly Love from Lucy the Valiant

” But it does amaze me how much life has changed. Different career paths, different countries, different lifestyles, a different language.

And yet, I still feel like the same old me.

Maybe I’m more steadfastly, more assuredly me.” Capturing Time from Tasting Grace

“Soaking in the giggles and smiling to myself, I wondered, “How did I get here? Me, who swore as a teenager that I would never have children, now with three of them!?”

A number of older women have told me that this time, when the kids are young and home, is one of the best times of life. Yes, it’s hard, but it’s good.” These Sounds from A Delightful Home

If I could change one thing about myself (other than my lack of cleavage) I’d ask for more patience. This past weekend I needed more than ever. Let me lay out the scenario for you…” Mom’s Need time Outs Too from Red Head Reverie

Yesterday’s post was about running away and hiding. Not much intentional living in running away, right? And so I began to think…how do I live intentionally?” Picnicking from Lemon Drop Pie

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:

“Today I traipsed along on ancient, hallowed grounds*
And encountered upon them the enormity of time.
I felt the insignificance
Of even significant moments
And weight lifted that had once been mine.” 
 A Walk in Time from Jade at Tasting Grace

“Every once in a while we run into a person, a stranger, who impacts our lives in a way that makes us think there was something more going on there…Close Encounters from Kerri at Earth’s Crammed with Heaven
