whateverislovely Dear friends, my dear dad Doug is facing the end of his life. Since his diagnosis at the end of September, two chemo regimens have not prevented the growth of his cancer. At this point, he has decided to move to hospice care. Though we are heartbroken at this outcome, we are certain of his eternal future and our peace lies in that fact. Thank you to those who have taken an interest in his story and supported our family in this fight. If you have any messages of encouragement, please send them to the email in my profile and I will pass them on to him. Much love from my family to yours! #mountainsfordoug #storyportrait 1d

whateverislovely Good morning! Do you guys know Sean (@ninedesignlab)? You MUST see his feed - his images of nature are wild and wonderful. I was so honored when he asked me to collaborate with him for his second IG anniversary. The shot he sent me was magnificent (see the original on his feed) and I hope I did it justice with my edit. We're mighty glad you're here, Sean - keep up the amazing work! 5d
  •   ninedesignlab Thanks for the kind words! And thanks for the collab! 😀 5d

whateverislovely We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls - Mother Teresa 1w

whateverislovely From Minute to Minute || 'Cause Elly called me out on my uber tardiness, HERE (finally) is the eighth and final installment of the #CollabFOURparty, where all 8 of the members from #CollabFOURiginals and #CollabHERation are doing an edit of a photo provided by one of the members. This week's shot comes from the master of the candid, the king of #alaelbow, @elbow_macaroni. Make sure to check out his edit, as well as those of @whateverislovely, @kimtche, @agentlespirit, @_lifeinfocus, @timothygirard and @38ssiew!

whateverislovely I've taken a leave of absence from work this month to do things that matter. Like morning coffee with Dad. Believing for this time, as I read last night, that "there is no waste in the visible or invisible work of God." Thankful for the support of so many who gave me the space and time. 2w

whateverislovely Today as we face our dishes, our proposals, our classrooms full of the future; as we sit to create, to write, and to live on purpose, may the promise of growth outweigh our fear of stumbling. May we remember how swiftly perfect love drives out fear. May we know what it means to make art with our hands, in our sounds, with our lives. May our thousand brilliant excuses spin around into one brilliant act of belief. 2w
