All the Ways You Can Stay – Wally Chamberlain
So then stay in the summer, fall, winter and spring;
To belong to a place is a wonderful thing.
And then when you’re old, there’s something you should do,
Show your kids all the ways that they can stay too.

The Society of Breaking Hearts – Callie Feyen
To be opened requires some kind of breaking.
To be opened might be the greater, the more excruciating miracle of all.
And so it is with this command I send you:
Be opened to what you hear and see in the world. Be opened to the world’s touch, and be opened to the many ways you can and will touch the world. Be opened to all you’ll learn and all you’ll become.
On Joy – John Mark Comer
“Even though we can’t see very far down the road, and we may face many changes, we belong to the One who never changes, who’s promised never to leave or forsake us. We can count on Him to go before us as He has in the past, leading us ever closer to Home, where there will be no need of lamplight or sunlight, for the Lord Himself will be our everlasting light (Revelation 22:5).”
The Stranger in My House – Plough
“Jesus healed some but not all; his calling was not a rush to reach every sick person immediately. In Christlike hospitality, we recognize that much brokenness will go unremedied for now, and our call is to generously offer what we can while fostering a trust in God’s nature as redeemer and healer. This is how we may sacrificially love without losing our souls. It isn’t ours to fix our guest but to keep a place where we watch for what God will do. The tenets of hospitality can help us see what care we can wisely provide in our home and when, like the Good Samaritan, we need to turn the care over to others.”
