Weekend Care Package

Thanks for stopping by today. Here, take a seat.

Inspiration found: a couch from the St. Louis Art Museum, from when I visited there once with my sister-in-law. Also, admission is free, so if you are in St. Louis  ever, you should stop by.

And while you are sitting on that yellow couch so whimsical and full of personality,  here;

Here are some quotes to read.

soak in.

embrace.

“It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who we are. We face surprises. And disappointments. The crucial fact is that we are different from anyone we know and admire… It takes all one’s courage to be the person one is, fulfilling one’s odd and unique possibilities.” -M.C. Richards, quote found in my Sacred Ordinary Days Planner

“You need only claim the events of your life to make yourself yours. When you truly posses all you have been and done . . . you are fierce with reality.” -Florida Scott-Maxwell, quote found in my Sacred Ordinary Days Planner

A prayer for the weekend

 Lord let us see the way you love us and let us grow in our own unique design with peace and thankfulness.


If you haven’t stopped by my blog on the weekend before,  I like to share an assortment of links, images, poems and more that you might enjoy in my post “Weekend Care Package”.

This weekend’s shares are for those needing a reminder to embrace your own uniqueness, needing a bit of loveliness and whimsy (poetry and art), needing help transitioning from vacation back to real life, or needing to receive your own summer even when it might not be turning out how you would have hoped.

 

Summer

Lazy summer, warm and sweet.

Long, long days full of bees and flowers.

Time to dip your toes in the sea or watch the breeze moving through the grass.

Time to pick a ripe tomato right off

the plant and pop it in your mouth.

Time to look at the sky and dream.

Again, I am so glad you stopped by. Most likely this weekend I will be sanding cabinets over at the house we are renovating to move into. In between the nitty gritty type of remodeling work, I am hoping to find sometime to read and to relax as well!

What are you up to this weekend? Thinking of you and praying love, gentleness, and strength find their way into your weekend.
