make it count…

“How we spend our days is how we spend our lives.” ~ Annie Dillard

So how are you spending your days?


Make them count.

Do justice. Create beauty. Laugh. Forgive. Risk. Give thanks. Dance. Slow down. Pay attention. Smile. Pray. Work. Rest. Celebrate. Drink deeply of today…

Ponderings tonight

“Know, O beloved, that man was not created in jest or at random, but marvelously made and for some great end.”

~ Al-Ghazali

“How we spend our days, of course, is how we spend our lives.”

~ Annie Dillard

I have not been able to dislodge these two thoughts from my mind.

What will it look like when I actually live my life as I believed that were true?

What will it look like when we begin to spend our days and our lives with purpose, grace, and beauty?
