Exploring time off… Friday’s door 


Thankful for Friday, people awaken ready to look past the workday. Desks are cleared early and highways jam with hunger – hunger for freedom from the clock.

We are so accustomed to days that are filled with scheduled hours and minutes. So who is surprised that we often over-schedule ‘time-off’, leading us to places ‘familiar’. Places we find within our own circle of travel.

When you can feel ‘free from the clock’ take time to explore… never know what you might find!

Choose to be grateful 


Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice. I can choose to be grateful even when my emotions and feelings are still steeped in hurt and resentment.
It is amazing how many occasions present themselves in which
I can choose gratitude instead of a complaint.

Inspiration — Monday’s Door

Sometimes Monday’s door calls for bright, warm colors.
An image that can hopefully inspire fresh energy as a new week begins!

Holy places – Sunday’s Door

 

Holy places can be found in the most unsuspecting places. These are places that feel sacred as you approach.
Do we go by these places each day without taking a moment to notice?

If the day allows, note your surroundings. What can you find that draws you as sacred space?

Friday’s door- Playtime

Friday- a day when doors can look more playful- when they might even spark ideas to slow the pace and bring out creativity to refresh the spirit.

We thank God for every day but Friday can bring a gleam in our eyes and fill our hearts with gratitude. Whatever day is your Friday- may it offer the promise of time.

Forty early mornings
Will do for your growing awareness

A little crooked

A little crooked- yet this door brings delight and welcome.
It is good for the soul to practice gratitude in the midst of our imperfection.
Life offers beauty and delight throughout its crooked path.
A great way to move through each day… practice gratitude.
