simplicity in green.

i forgot where i parked my car the other day as i was leaving the office to run an errand. i walked out of the front door of the office, looked around for it, and obviously never found it because it was parked around the other side of the building. i could have gone back into the building and walked down a flight of stairs, down a hallway, and out another door to get to that parking lot, but instead, i went off the beaten path.

…in the grass.

i had sandals on, and the grass was longer than usual on this particular day, so i could feel it tickling the bottom of my feet.

it was cold. its was damp. it was green. it was comforting.

that was something i hadn’t felt in a long time.

it’s something so simple, and i don’t always recognize it when it happens.

in that moment, i forgot about the insanity that i was leaving behind in the office. i forgot about the stresses of my job, and how i don’t even have time to finish unpacking the house that i’ve lived in since july, because i’m always busy doing SOMETHING.

but right then and there, in a patch of grass between 2 parking lots, i felt it.

i didn’t just feel the grass tickling my feet…

i felt love.

a simple, green reminder that i need to stop every once in a while, and breathe.

and find the love.

it’s simple.

and sometimes, it’s green.

and sometimes, while it may be unexpected,

it’s always there.

 

sing to my soul.

i’m a sucker for beautiful things.

beautiful people. beautiful songs. beautiful words.

this song sucker punched me on Sunday evening. and it was beautiful.

“come away” by jesus culture.

go and listen. and love like i do. it’ll sing to your soul.

“it’s gonna be wild, it’s gonna be great, it’s gonna be full of Me.”
