Bigger Picture Moments: Hyacynth’s Thanks in Weakness

Every Thursday we come together to share the harvest of intentional living by capturing a glimpse of the bigger picture through a simple moment. Won’t you join us?

Simple BPM

In November we are serving our moments up with a main course of Gratitude.

I have danced in the darkness of my heart with worry and fear and selfishness.

And in the shadowy recesses of my heart those weaknesses have grown.

While thankfulness has doused the flames of fear and love has weakened my selfishness and joy has robbed worry of its power, there still comes a time, when in the solitude and silence of life, that we must look our weaknesses in the eye, call them by name …

To read the rest and share your own moments of thankfulness head over toUndercover Mother.



Reflect on the blessings that were apparent to you this week


Harvest them!
