Had the pleasure of being  interviewed by @hollyanewton on the @exhalewomen podcast recently. Check out the episode about finding hope even in places of despair - it dropped today.

Thinking about freedom this weekend as I’ve reread a powerful little book, Interior Freedom, by Jacques Philippe. 
Currently digesting  this ~
“We can only acquire interior freedom to the degree we develop the three virtues of faith, hope, and love.”
Not - money, health, or success. 
Faith, hope, and love. 
That’s enough to keep me meditating for awhile.

We are the Beloved. We are intimately loved long before our parents, teachers, spouses, children, and friends loved or wounded us. That’s the truth of our lives. That’s the truth spoken by the voice that says, “You are my Beloved.” 
Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the “Beloved.” Being the Beloved expresses the core truth of our existence. 
- Henri Nouwen 

Much of my prayer life recently has been re-oriented toward soaking in the truth of my Belovedness in God’s eyes. Instead of coming with my long list of requests, all wordy and breathless, I come now in stillness, in silence. And I listen. I listen mostly for his words that speak blessing and love over me. Words that assure me I am enough, not that I’ve done enough.

I come to prayer with a heart and mind churning with activity and anxiety. In the silence, my mind is stilled and my heart is at peace.

Promises of HOPE abound, we have only to open our eyes to notice them. 
(Hope you also like a good sunset; I have a feeling the feed is going to be full of them for the next two weeks. 😉)
