We slowed down and sat still. We were distracted and tearful. We grieved and rested and June held all it's blues. June was hard.
And now, July is here. July is here to remind us of the way that time passes, the healing happens, even if just a small bit at a time. A piece, a piece, a piece and it all comes together without our realizing. It all comes together until it's complete and we're here, in July.
Today, today is a new month for us to grasp and savor. Welcome friend. Welcome warmly to July.
Inspiration is that for me. Words like Hannah's, like Alexandra's, like Allison's. Prayers like Emily's. Songs like Bethel's. Oh goodness, I seek as hard as Hazel digging for a bone in the backyard. I need that thing, that one thing that's going to fit just right over the hole in my heart. It's inspiration, blessed and divine, that always does the trick.
[Part 1 + Part 2 = Part 3]
Every day in July there's going to be a pep talk on my Instagram.
Some short, some long, always aiming to inspire you. The goal: find light and be it.
July days are long and full of light. They're warm and serve as a cozy hug from a kind mama in the midst of our year. They're slower and more savory, willing to have you bask in their warmth.
Friends, we deserve a good, inspired July.
We deserve the healing and promise July holds for us.
We deserve small things done with great, exploding love (as Mama Teresa instructs us).
Be part of it here.
