“There is within each one of us a potential for goodness beyond our imagining; for giving which seeks no reward; for listening without judgment; for loving unconditionally.”

~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

That “listening without judgement” thing can be a challenge sometimes, can’t it?

I felt the weight of silent judgement this week where none was intended. Like a garden cultivator turns the soil exposing that which was hidden, the perceived judgement surfaced rejection and fear.

I recognized what was happening and shrugged it off as best I could, but not before I was presented with an opportunity to extend the same grace to another that I wanted for myself. Life’s like that. It’s how we learn.

Interesting conversations and observations this week with much to chew and ruminate on–one of those learning weeks.

Today I am weary.

Looking forward to a quiet day at home regaining my equilibrium.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
