Comment on Through Glass and Fingertips by jacqui https://lightandloveliness.com/2017/12/13/through-glass-and-fingertips/#comment-6413 Thu, 14 Dec 2017 18:01:41 +0000 http://lightandloveliness.com/?p=3684#comment-6413 I’ve been radio silent since Nov. 1st, too. I was in such a groove, but there was also relief with the shifting of gears for a time. Ideas still come while I’m doing the dishes, taking a shower, or as I’m falling asleep at night. I either scratch them in the periphery of my subconscious or on a scrap of paper on the counter, and for right now, that has to be good enough. There’s a time for everything, not time to be good at everything at once. 🙂

Comment on As Leaves Let Go by Rebecca Polanco https://lightandloveliness.com/2016/10/08/as-leaves-let-go/#comment-6300 Mon, 13 Nov 2017 05:55:36 +0000 http://lightandloveliness.com/?p=3142#comment-6300 I love this Emily. Thank you for your words. “Let Go”. “He will not pluck me from the tree against my will, but allows whatever conditions are necessary to convince me I don’t want to continue in the condition I’m in—tightly gripping a season or a reality that isn’t in my control, even though I believe it to be, wasting my energy needlessly.” This resonated with me. Said so eloquently.

Comment on Strength and Resolve by Robin https://lightandloveliness.com/2017/10/13/strength-and-resolve/#comment-6211 Sat, 14 Oct 2017 01:35:02 +0000 http://lightandloveliness.com/?p=3631#comment-6211 This is so very encouraging to hear! My secondborn girl (Katherine- of course, Katherine) is the same kind. She’s fierce and strong and if she sets herself against me, I best pack a lunch because we are going to be here ALL day. (I’ll admit, I take her insults as compliments. “You’re a BAD MAMA” is usually hurled when she has tried everything to ruffle me and hasn’t succeeded.) It’s so, SO good to hear that your similar second is headed in a direction other than jail. (Jury’s still out on mine.)
