From January 2017 up until Easter 2017 I took time to write one post each week or so about ways of collecting peace.
The pomegranate seed
For times of waiting and persevering; the idea of the seed can bring your soul peace. A peace to trust even in slow or difficult growth.
A poem and short story to sit with if you are feeling stuck.
unpacking + the unexpected
A post for February sick days, monumental days, and moving days.
The 3rd installment in my mini-series Collecting Peace. Besides finding some encouragement in this post you might also find some artful inspiration!
We all need somewhere to dwell- mind body soul- all three parts.
Maybe one of the three you've neglected or they all feel unconnected?
But regardless- the three that are one are meant for a home.
Sharing 4 books about home that I love. 4 books that brought me peace, comfort, or inspiration during my own journey of moving and renovating an old home.
March moments, a book recommendation, and a little bit on collecting peace this spring.
Find strength & peace during middle moments; whether you are in the middle of the week or the middle of a project!
On finding peace through a perspective of patience and gratitude.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”
— Ecclesiastes 3:11
A KINDRED SPIRIT
Collecting peace through connection and childhood stories.
"In Oklahoma, most people are not afraid of sirens or tornado warnings. Some might climb into a bathtub or head to a shelter, but most stand on the porch taking pictures." -Suzanne Eller, Come With Me
Miracles + Margin
The final post in my series on collecting peace. This one is about miracles and margin.
“Next, Noah sent out a dove. At first it was unable to find a place to land, but then it returned holding a sprig from an olive tree-an image that later became a widespread symbol for peace. After a time of judgement and destruction, now God was promising a time of peace and redemption.”
