A video encased hug...

is all you need to keep on chugging along in life. A dear friend called me earlier today and said, "This new song by Jason Mraz is for you". She had no idea how much I needed to hear it's message.

I will be thinking and praying my way through this verse this week as part of reading "The Artists Rule" . This verse seems to be waving hello to me every time I turn around. When I read it yesterday, it took my breath away - and that reaction makes me think there is a great deal to unpack in the above words. What do you do when you find yourself at a crossroads? How do you decide which direction to move? - Flipping a coin, listening to your gut? Here is a quote from "The Artists Rule" about the work of transition, that really struck me...
