for your weekend


When you walk into rooms this weekend, may you truly see people rather than wonder what people see in you.

May you love them the way you long for love, listen the way you want to be listened to, and celebrate the moments you have rather than long for the ones you don’t. Breathe in the gift of this day. And if this day is rotten? Hold on to hope for tomorrow.

Enjoy your weekend, friends. Here are some good reads to curl up with (with which to curl up? That sounds so pretentious):

    Wow. You spoke straight to my heart. I joined my sister this week on an over night trip back to our hometown. A place with nothing but painful abusive memories. We went to see her Dad and 1/2 brother. After checking into our room I turned to her with tears in my eyes and said I just couldn’t join her down at the lounge because of the weight I have gained over the years. Plus I got injured and walk with a cane. She comforted me and said that was fine. While she unloaded more luggage I had a good talk to myself and decided staying hidden was not a choice. So we ended up having a wonderful time! Your words couldn’t have been more timely and beautiful.

    I love reading your “for your weekend” posts. They make me stop and reflect {remind} on what truly is important. I really wish I had someone like you as a friend to constantly inspire and to help me grow in my faith.
    Hope you had a good weekend. Mine was a nice one.

    Thank you – I love these posts. I follow so many blogs, but yours is one I actually read… you make me feel okay to be broken and soft in a world that asks for perfect and polished.
    Thank you for reminding me to see beyond me.
    xx Rachael
