Silent solitude makes true speech possible and personal. If I am not in touch with my own belovedness, then I cannot touch the sacredness of others. If I am estranged from myself, I am likewise a stranger to others. { Brennan Manning }⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Before the hustle of this holiday season begins, create space in your schedule for solitude. Set your intentions for the season. Plan your schedule carefully, creating margin. Prepare your soul for the people you will encounter. Anticipate your actions and responses. Plan your finances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then, be at rest with your decisions. Enter in into the wonder, the joy and the thanksgiving. Savor the sweet, small moments. Look for His grace to touch each day.
