Ep. 6 – Here Is Your New Business Card

Oct 17, 2018

For years, Lisa-Jo and Christie defined their significance according to the business cards in their pockets. They knew just what they wanted those cards to say and exactly what they never wanted to see printed there.

But their job titles, along with their professional and personal roles, have changed significantly over the years, and navigating those transitions has led them to the same realization: our significance is determined by God alone.

No matter what our business cards do or do not say, God names each of us “Beloved.”

When I was a little girl growing up in Texas, my favorite book was The Secret Garden. I never felt like I belonged. Never felt completely understood. But some things just take time. 💚🥰
Sunday in Cambridge. Roses. The sounds of singing and bells. A church tower that has stood for one thousand years.
Such a wonderful, beautiful waste of time. 💗 What? You thought time was meant to be “used”? 😉 Here’s to more play, less productivity this summer.

You say gardens can’t have a sense of humor? The alliums would like a word. 😉
