The theme of cultivate, my One Word for this year, is woven throughout the days of writing this month. I am focusing on several areas of life that have been my focus for cultivating this year. I am not doing things perfectly, but I am learning as I go and would love to share some of it with you.
I hold you in my heart.
It might seem clique. Or strange. Those I may have not meet in real life are so important to me – really? But it is very true. As I write I think of you and pray that the words which come will be exactly what you are needing.
I hold you in my heart.
And I hold out to you that which has been an encouragement and blessing to me. There are so many resources available to us today. If you are a learner, you already know how vast the information at our fingertips. Each Saturday, I seek to share some of the resources I have found. I hold out to you some of the reading and tools that have been helpful for me as I cultivate different areas of life. You may need what I have discovered. Like lepers in Elijah’s day who discovered a deserted camp full of provisions, I share. They choose to share the news of their discovery with the fortified city near them. Knowing they could be rejected because of their disease, but also knowing the people needed to know the bounty that was so close and available.
As I have sought to cultivate my health life – spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally; here are some resources that have been beneficial to me.
- Well-Grounded Life, this is Lisa Byrne’s site. Her newsletter is always encouraging and beneficial as I seek to remember to care for my physical well-being amidst all the others things.
- Keeper of the Home, a good starting point resource site with articles and recipes for a variety of things with an orientation to natural living. If you are looking for a food specific resource Kitchen Stewardship is a good starting point.
- a physical therapist (as I went through therapy for extreme headaches, the skill and knowledge I learned from those I worked with has been amazingly beneficial)
I know there are more, but these are what I am thinking of now. I’ll update anything that I think of, and each Saturday, I”ll share more resources and what I have read recently.
This post is a part of the Write 31 Days Challenge for 2017. Each October writers around the world, take up the challenge to write and share their writing each day for the month of October. The theme for my writing this year is Cultivate. Following the prompts provided by the Five Minute Friday community, my goal is to write and post each day. Check out my 2017 Write 31 Days landing page for a list of all the prompts I’ll be following and links to each days post.
