a word salad of a few fun things i found on and off the internet this week

quotes:
"Our own spiritual maturity is tied up with how we model and encourage that maturity in others."

"Sometimes good and worthwhile devotional practices will inspire us - and sometimes they feel more like work for long stretches of time."

- Derek Olsen, Inwardly Digest: The Prayer Book as Guide to a Spiritual Life

article:
This is Not My Fight Song

It wasn’t a call to arms. It wasn’t a command to different behavior or a stricter set of rules. It was an invitation. This isn’t what you have to do, it’s what you get to do: be loved. See how that fits.

These were the words of grace I needed this week.

inspiration:
"An Easy Way to Make New Friends"
I am notorious for stalking women to make them into my new friends, and I love this idea of a Cookbook Cooking Book Club as a new way to do that. Let me know if you start one of your own!

ideas for self-care:
This week I added incense to my self-care project. I've been burning candles and diffusing essential oils like a crazy person for a while now, but I wasn't getting quite the aromatic effect I was looking for from either of those. I was able to get a simple burner and some Frankincense and Sandalwood for not a lot of money from our local Earth Fare. It's really lifted my spirits to have my home smell like church on a Feast Day.

Self-care can sometimes be thinking of someone else. Earth Fare has a loyalty card just like every other retailer in America, but I don't often shop there. Instead, I gave the cashier my dad's phone number and was able to score him enough points for $1 off his next purchase (don't tell him!). Just an idea if you're ever at a store you don't often go to but have the number of a friend or loved one who does!

that's it!
see you next week, beloved.

xo,
sara
