Breathing

It's a week of hard Eucharisteo and Thursday's already here and I haven't whispered thanks.

There are all these words to write and there's hope to be found, but right now I'm just breathing through it all.  Because there's still beauty all around and I'm inhaling the fragrance of His love, exhaling the hard Eucharisteo

Will you breath with me?


1038.  God always here, even when it's hard to breathe


1039.  Angels who protect when a loved one wants to die


1040.  Broken hearts leaving room for the deepest healing of all


1041.  Strength to do what's needed, long after strength is gone


1042.  Unexpected laughter in the middle of hard days


1043.  Family who opens the door, makes room for one more


1044.  Brother who does what's right, even when it's the hardest thing


1045.  Friend who prays while she carries her own heavy load


1046.  Not grieving alone


1047.  The One Who breathes hope while I breathe thanks


1048.  Hope Himself.  Always, always Him.


Breathe in....breathe out....

Breathe in....breathe out...


He is near.

  1. What stunning photos! I'm sorry it has been a week of hard eucharisteo for you, but thanks be to God for giving you courage and strength to breathe out thanksgiving through whatever affliction has come upon you.

    May He strengthen you with His grace and bless you in your obedience. As you note, Christ Himself is hope. May He bloom beautifully, inexplicably, in your heart today.

  4. @B: Thank you--I thought of you when I was taking the third picture with the big ol' water drop hanging down. It's hard to resist those drops, isn't it? ;o) You'd love the rose garden here. Maybe someday...
