Every single day I take notes. What my kids do, ways I drop the ball, funny things I see happen at Starbucks. You name it, I write it down. Why? Because life is full of stories. It’s the way we are moved. Stories take us places. The greatest story I’ve ever been told has wrecked my life beyond all recognition (in a good way). These posts are me, looking through the lens of love and grace, and trying to begin to understand what it means to love and serve God & others. I’ve been branded with love. God’s love. Now, let’s try to spread a little love around. Hope these posts encourage & stretch you. Enjoy.
