You are a drop:
Divine being is the ocean.
While you still live,
hold steadily before you
the vision of the whole
and you will be the whole.
- Jalal-ud-Din Rumi

Selfies aren’t all that, your worth is not from your likes, you are made for more #HaikuTuesday

It's OK to stop doing and just BE #evenonamonday

My #songoftheweek is "Sing My Way Back" by Steffany Gretzinger I have been enjoying the poetic lyrics of this uber talented fellow ginger, and I especially love all the piano, might have to try to learn to play this one!

There's a garden in the ashes
There is beauty in the mess
If we embrace our imperfections
I know love will do the rest

It's time for #FridayIntroductions Since it's finally starting to feel like fall around here, I'm making this my Fall Favorites edition:

Favorite Fall Flavors: Squash, cranberry and warming spices (cinnamon, clove, allspice)

Favorite thing to wear in fall: the rare combo of boots with bare legs!

Favorite Fall Beverage: toss up between hot spiced cider and chai

Favorite Fall Tradition: our annual visit to the pumpkin patch

New and Exciting This Fall: I'm looking forward to Fall as a new growing season in #RuffinghurstGarden too, since we started in January this will be our first fall for growing veggies and herbs.

It's Not Fall Unless/Until: I've had a pumpkin beer

What's your "It's Not Fall Unless"?

With #gratitude I am turning routine into joy. My morning routine is one I am especially fond of, I am SO grateful... - that I get to wake up in the morning next to the love of my life
- that a sweet lil fur baby is waiting for his special breakfast in the next room
- that I get to enjoy incredible coffee and all the different roasts my hubby finds for us to sample
- that I have a leisurely start to the day with no stress of having to rush out the door by a certain time
- that I get to make my breakfast choices intuitively and eat mindfully
- that I get to spend quiet time with God each morning studying the Bible and applying it to my life
- that I can wear whatever suits me to work, and that it's no longer a suit
- that I can listen to my favorite music while I work from the home office

What is part of your daily routine that you are especially thankful for?

Give yourself permission to see yourself as the Masterpiece you were created to be.

I know from experience, dude.

Some more thoughts on #beauty as I try to reclaim it from selfie culture and diet culture... I want to re-define it for myself. I don’t have an official definition I am ready to share yet. What it means to me is still being molded as I learn to live this out, following Jesus not diets.

So far, this Bible verse is my cornerstone on the matter:

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 (ESV)

I love this #truth. We’ve probably all heard it before, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. But for whatever reason, I had not truly taken this to heart or applied it to physical beauty until I let this #scripture verse really sink in.

One more time, for the people in the back: IT'S WHAT'S ON THE INSIDE THAT COUNTS.

"Your inner growth is completely dependent upon the realization that the only way to find peace and contentment is to stop thinking about yourself." The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer #TheUntetheredSoul
This realization was a big one for me. When I first read it, the concept seemed so foreign, but as I've sat with it for awhile and re-read the book it occurred to me that all of this seeking and soul searching has a point. It's an inner journey to turn you outward.

Every ❤️ single ❤️ day ❤️ I am grateful for you. #grateful #gratitude
