May you blossom. May you choose life. May you grow in power rather than shrinking in blame. May you learn from experience and use this new wisdom to create a life of power and purpose.

The Pilgrim Challenge

Jesus said; Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
Matt 11: 28-30 The Message
