inkedfingers Good morning lovely :) Maybe this will speak to you as much as it has me this past weekend... "If God is right there, in the midst of our struggle, then our aim is to stay there. We are to remain in the cell, to stay on the road, not to forego the journey or forget the darkness. It is all too easy for us to overlook the importance of struggle, preferring instead to secure peace and rest, or presuming to reach the stage of love prematurely, It is always easier to allow things to pass by, to go on without examination and effort. Yet, struggling means living. (!!!!!!!!!!) It is a way of fully living life and not merely observing it. It takes much time and a great effort to unite the disparate, disjointed, and divided parts of the self into an integrated whole. During this time and in this effort, the virtue of struggle was one of the nonnegotiable; in the spiritual way of the desert. The Desert Fathers and Mothers speak to us with authority, because they are in fact our fellow travelers. They never claim to have arrived, they never indicate having completed the journey." -John Chryssavgis 4d

  •   heysheila Wow! 'Struggling means living'. So true we want to get past the struggle and the hurt so we can be over it and on the other side, instead of living it in. @laceydena read this. 4d
  •   lariwashburn i've come to use the word effort in place of the word struggle. 4d
  •   its_dr_bob Awesome quote! 4d
  •   _whateverislovely48 Wow! This is powerful truth! Thanks for sharing. 4d

We eat matzah, unleavened bread to remind us of the swift exit from Egypt... freedom! We are all searching for freedom from something. To live with no fear is to be free!!! xo, carli 6d

inkedfingers #latergram I don't have a garden to tend to this year; I have a little human. :) I miss it terribly though... next year when the wee one is old enough to traipse around the flower beds and dig her hands in the dirt in search of potatoes, we shall have a garden. That will be another happy #spring. 7d

inkedfingers #52memories2014 Nana came to visit us! • We had a mock birthday party for little E even though her bdays a month away because Nana can't make the real date! Cake twice! Hooray! (Ha) • Emilia clear as day said "happy baby" and the best part, I have it on voice memos! She says "happy" all the time as "pappy!" and my heart explodes. • Paid those lovely taxes, 4th and 1st quarter and we have some interesting business adventures in the near future that could be life changing! Ah! #myweekinscraps 1w

inkedfingers "You might be waiting for things to settle down. For the kids to be old enough, for work to calm down, for the economy to recover, for the weather to cooperate, for your bad back to let up just a little...
The thing is, people who make a difference never wait for just the right time. They know that it will never arrive.

Instead, they make their ruckus when they are short of sleep, out of money, hungry, in the middle of a domestic mess and during a blizzard. Whenever.
As long as whenever is now." -Seth Godin || amen.

inkedfingers the color of the sky after a storm. be patient. be patient. "be patient with all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions..." says Rilke and "all of human wisdom is summed up in three words 'wait and hope'" says Dumas and i know beyond a shadow of a doubt an answer will come. if you do not have faith, if you do not have courage, i will have it for you. xo 2w
