As I sat down to write this note from my heart to yours, the notion of seasons and spaciousness came to mind. I’d love to hear what season you’re in these days in life.

On my end, I am preparing to slow my pace a bit for the summer months – making space to work on my next book and to tend to some minutia I often don’t have time for in the daily rhythms of Seeds work.

I am also ever-so-eager to take time to be still more deeply and often (yup, to take some extended PoPs!) and to move a bit more slowly and playFULLY with my family in these days that continue to be ever-so-uncertain for them. To be sure, I’m grateFULL with all my heart for the gift and privilege to choose and cultivate a season of spaciousness.

I love this quote:

Above all, trust in the slow work of God. We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay. We should like to skip the intermediate stages. We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new. – Teilhard de Chardin excerpt of prayer-poem, “Patient Trust”

I write about this notion and need to make space in Soulfully Ablaze in a section called “Garden Life” – here’s a PDF of the excerpt and PoP (Place of Pause) to fuel a 3-fold moment to be still, to ponder, and to engage with whatever is goin’ on in your life. Take a beat and a breath to be still and tend to the garden of your life.

May your life today be blessed –
whether in a season of seeding,
lying dormant,
exchanging, or

You are loved.
You belong.
We belong to each other.
Let’s standTALL together and light up the world.

xo, -Sarah DT ❤️
