Reading over your words blessed my soul this week. As you shared your heart, I wish I coulda handed you all a band right then. So please e-mail me your address at saraLroyer@gmail.com so I can send one your way :)
Last summer, we had a bucket list of what we wanted to do. We were finishing up a major house reno and didn't want to get life lost in all the projects. This year, our goal has been *simple and two-fold:
*Simple, as in simplified, not necessarily easy.
Be a blessing.
Let joy live loud in our souls.

she did one more load of laundry.
~ Ann VoskampOur days have been full and loud. The hose of visiting with friends and family is on full-blast. And, we are soaking it in! Someday I may learn how to keep on top of the laundry and the rest of life. But when given a choice, the laundry can wait.
I'm thinking that when we look back on these days, we won't remember whether or not our laundry was put away. (Most likely, not put away :)
But the lady doing synchronized swimming in the lake - that is a memory we will never forget.
Jump in and enjoy it, friends!
Each new day offers another opportunity.
The sun rises and hands us a new beginning.
May Love be priority.
Peace become something we work for.
And Joy, let it take over!
Let joy live loud in your soul.
