"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow." -Audrey Hepburn Introducing a Spring Special designed especially for sharing LOVE in your family! Read on (long post alert, but the special at the end is worth it; I promise)… Loving my people is absolutely the most important “work” of my life. I want to get “real” with that priority for a moment. When I was in seminary we spent a lot of time talking about calling. More specifically, that pastors are called to serve the church, but that our work as pastors is NOT as important as our calling to love God, and our spouse and families. It’s easy, until it’s not. The demands of serving the church can be incredible; the expectations are high. There is always more work to be done. Often times, even if pastors are excellent at setting boundaries, work creeps in... I’ve seen plenty of pastors’ families fall apart; it’s heartbreaking and feels unfair. I would never be self-righteous enough to claim that my family isn’t at risk. There have been, and will be, moments when it feels like everything is “falling apart.” In those moments, it’s absolutely necessary to come back to our center. The One who loved us first is always there with open arms. We have to find our way back to the grace we have been given, and have the courage to offer it freely into our families (even when we don’t really want to offer it). We must do the “every day work” of loving each other – with open hearts, generous spirits, and plenty of forgiveness for all the places we fail. The “work” of being a family is about planting love every single day. It is about planting generosity, forgiveness, patience and hope each day because what we sow into our families today, will bloom into our tomorrows. This spring, I am giving families the opportunity to plant a little love! Ruffled By Grace is offering special “Family Promise” Ceremonies. These mini ceremonies feature fun ways to say “I love you” to each other. It’s also the perfect opportunity to update your family photos with a purpose. Plant love into your family this spring in a new and creative way. Make memories that will last a lifetime. DM me. Let’s work on that spring garden! #ruffledbygrace
