How to see it not as Interruption…or how to Bring the Outdoors in, a tutorial.

December 15, 2011

There are times when all you want to do in this Season is to draw the beauty in.

So you Gather.

Take something or someone with you to Collect.

It will never happen unless you get up… taking tools and Go.

All those moments where you long to Gather all that He has for you… are moments wasted in longing…when no matter the Season all you need to do is show up …Willing to Gather all that He has for you.

So you take yourself and a Willing heart.

With your heart open and the willingness to prune off what you need… you will find you are there for a purpose.

With your awareness open to all that He has… you collect…. I gather.

Then I stopped and saw a need…. one day it was Chris... another day it’s the old mare.

So I paused my gathering…to tend..to heal… to wash and to bless.

To Serve.

Is it distraction or obedience?  Or is all part of the Whole?

To see a need and to stop in your day and to serve?

 In this busy season  see it not as an interruption but a way to serve and to bless.

When you have done what you were called to do…

return to the Gathering…now with more then you started with…

even though you gave away time and yourself…like loaves and fish broken…You are more then you once were.

With the bits you have this Season … twine it together… lit from within.

Display all that He has given you… all that you are meant to be… and inspire others to do the same.


It all starts with your Willingness to Collect all that He has for you.

You showing up with the simple tools you have… and your desire to bring it into your family.

    Love love love and I adore the picture of your pony! It is a pony, right?

      He is a minature horse… Ponies have more of a ” I want to buck you off” look to their eye.
      Thanks for the compliment.
