Sometimes our brokenness is the best we can offer the world. πŸ’”
.
And sometimes, brokenness can actually look like strength, depending upon the angle you view it from. 🧐
.
A person who is strong enough to respect their brokenness and walk away can simply look incredibly strong, although deep inside they clearly see the light reflecting off the broken pieces of their life, or their heart.
.
A person who is broken may yet have the strength to stand, when in actual fact, if you talked with them for but a few minutes, you would be able to hear their heart, sitting down or crumpled up in surrender within their chest. 🏳️
.
Sometimes brokenness simply looks beautiful, especially to the viewer who recognizes their own brokenness. They may not even recognize the similarities; they may simply see brokenness as beautiful.

There is so much to say,
but today,
I simply offer the world my brokenness.
I cannot repair it myself. πŸ’”
I can only accept myself.
With warmth, and love,
and kindness.πŸ’œπŸ’™β€οΈ

Open yourself up to receive yourself today. πŸ’›πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«

Whether I deserve it or not, whether I understand it now or not,
I hear the winds of change blowing...
telling me that what I thought were my greatest defeats...
.
will become my greatest triumphs. πŸŒ¬πŸ’¨βœ¨β˜€οΈπŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ’›
.
.
I don’t steady on because I always want to, but I know I need to, so I do.
I don’t see a reason to continue growing stronger, but God sees the road ahead and knows what I need to be ready to encounter or step into on this path of mine. πŸ›€
So I steady on. πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ With God as my confidence, His steady hand my guide, His love my shield. πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ’›
And with His grace, and joy and forgiveness. πŸ’›πŸ§‘β™₯️☺️
.
I am His daughter and He is my Father. I will always be true to that.
I look forward to the days ahead. πŸŒ¬πŸ’¨πŸŒ€βœ¨β˜ΊοΈπŸ’«

Sometimes the β€œright” thing to do is not the right thing to do. πŸ–€πŸ’Ÿ
.
Sometimes we need to side step the norms or the rules, if but for a moment,
to recreate our future, to open our lives to new things, to set in place a new thing in our life.
.
Making waves, making changes, and courageously following this path of life I am created to walk.

Somebunny discovered herself a prize. ✨✨✨🀭
.
In the moments I was going in and out of the house to load up my car, little miss Paprika discovered a wondrous aspect of the spring season - new life! 🌱
Which means new bunnies! πŸ‡ 🐰
What a huntress! I was carrying something out to the car when what did my startled ears hear?? πŸ‘‚πŸΌπŸ‘‚πŸΌ A loud wailing coming from the middle of the lawn!
I couldn’t make out the tiny gray critter at first, but upon walking over...
🀭 😲
...
...
I remembered two springs ago when Rambo, my previous golden, found the same thing. Except the only marker that time were blood spots on the driveway and an empty nest. (Five of those nine had already been found by other wild things.) πŸ’”
Let’s be real though folks, there are thousands of bunnies in St. Louis Park, MN. The world can spare a few.
.
Not to leave you too horrified, there appeared to be no puncture wounds to either bunnies, and we put them back in their nest when we ALL finished investigating them. β€οΈπŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ˜‚ πŸ€—

Love this dude. πŸ’›

Funny Sunny makes sure you laugh every day. πŸ˜‚β˜€οΈ
.
I’d be lying if I said he never upset me (three blocks from the house out of my sight is TOO far!!). 🏑 But the joy this guy brings, including all the hair, sand, and dirt he drags into the house, has still proven worth it. πŸ‘ŒπŸ½
.
To my roll-in-the-grass buddy, you are a JOY. πŸŒ±πŸŒ±πŸŒ±πŸ€—πŸŽŠπŸ’›β˜€οΈβœ¨

Do you love yourself?? πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™β™₯️
.
.
Cuz how can you expect someone else to love you if you don’t love yourself? β™₯️
.
If you’re not sure if you do, sit with yourself a while. πŸ’
.
And if you realize you do, GREAT! πŸ˜ƒ Give yourself a high five! πŸ™ŒπŸ½
[Wouldn’t that make it a hand clap? πŸ‘πŸ½] πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
.
And if you realize you don’t, or that you’re afraid to, give yourself a self-hug and sit there until you DO! πŸ’›βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
Cuz nobody is gonna love you better than YOU do!
(Notice I left out God here; It’s automatic that He’ll always love us more than we love ourselves. πŸ’«πŸ’›πŸ’«)
.
Anyway, it sounds cliche, but it’s so vital that we love ourselves! πŸ€—πŸ’›πŸ’«
.
Shine on, my friend! β˜€οΈπŸŒΌπŸ’«βœ¨βœ¨βœ¨
