Welcome to Day 27 of 31 Extraordinary Days to Be… Or…simply: Be…
Together, we will learn to Be… to live fully and beautifully in our “skin”
and in our homes and beyond. If you missed The Introduction or you’d like
to follow the entire series, you can find each post listed here.
In my reading early this week I came across this verse….

Light-seeds are planted in the souls of God’s people,
Joy-seeds are planted in good heart-soil.
Psalm 97:11 The Message
I love the idea of God planting light seeds in our souls.
If we water and nurture those seeds so they grow…we’ll be lights in the darkness of the world.
Just think of what a little light does. And to think God doesn’t plant a single seed…he plants multiple seeds. Wow!
He doesn’t stop there!
God plants joy-seeds, too.
Did you notice where he plants the joy-seeds? Good heart soil.
Day 27 Challenge: The soil of our hearts can be soft and damp and warm…perfect for seed germination. Or it can be cold and dry and hard. What is the condition of the soil of your heart? Are you open to God and his leadership? Are you willing to tend the seeds and keep them free from the competition of weeds? Are you sprouting joy?
It’s Joy Day!
It’s the day when we take time to count our blessings from the past week.
To give thanks for the really good things and the things that weren’t so good.
I’m grateful for…
- a serendipitous photo shoot
- God’s faithfulness
- the opportunity to bless a friend
- an answer to prayer
- an interview
- seeing Lake Michigan
- a good visit with my husband’s family
Now it’s YOUR turn!! Please join me by tapping in your ‘seven’ in the “Please Share Your Extraordinary Thoughts” section below. Something happens when we take time to list out our bits of gratitude. I guarantee your joy meter will rise.
