(little thoughts from texts, tweets and other things)

Let's not dwell

What makes me fully alive? Narrating stories of hope and rescue. Holding the hands of those who long to be brave yet have trembling knees. Discovering beauty on the dustiest of roads. Hugging those I love dearly. Savoring a great meal and rich conversation about everything in general and nothing in particular.

Even writing these words makes me smile and fill my day with wonder and color.

So, where will you dwell today? What makes you fully alive? What gives breath to your lungs and makes your heart beat with purpose? Share it with me here so I can celebrate with you – and we will dwell together.

  1. There are a number of things, but this morning, I am thinking of two activities in particular. Deep conversation and creating something with my hands. I feel alive when I am in conversations that provoke thought, laughter and dreams. I grew up with two sisters and a large extended family. We traditionally stayed at the dinner table for hours sharing our stories and dreams. I also feel alive when I am able to create art, crafts, gifts, events with my hands. Sometimes I know where it’s headed visually and sometimes it’s a surprise. Stirring music in the background while I think is the icing on the cake. Thank you Ronne for asking us to think about this! Great start to my Monday morning. 🙂

  2. Beautiful and simple! I love it! What makes me fully alive is knowing that Jesus carried my cross so that I can fulfill His purpose. When I see people wake from their slumber, step out in faith, and find their God-given purpose!

  3. I must say thank you for focusing on the important and simple things in life and encouraging others to also. I feel alive enjoying good music; it’s an important part of who I am! Another of my greatest pleasures is to cook something that others enjoy eating. My greatest joy and when I am fully alive is teaching kids; it is amazing to see them have a ‘light bulb’ moment!
