Friday Love

Jun 8, 2012 | ideas & inspiration | 8 comments

Everywhere I turned this morning, I found joy and inspiration. So I thought it might be fun to start a Friday feature that’s a rundown of the week’s great loves. (What a bonus that these all came to me this very day.)

1. Life’s Banquet
a new post by one of my favorite writers, John Blase, on thebeautifuldue: Just like that the front yard has gone cockamamie with spendor…

2. Kale and Eggs, (or Why You Should Start a Food Blog)
Pure loveliness and inspiration from Food Loves Writing. One read and you’ll never want to miss another post. (I don’t.) Here’s why: When you hear these voices, remind yourself that there is something about the creative process that often makes us hesitate, that makes us question and compare, that makes us think, no one will want to read this kale and eggs post or, I need to tell people how great my work is so that it can feel true.  (Writer Shannalee Mallon gives us all that AND a deliciously simple recipe for what else? Kale and Eggs. Yum.

3. Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring
(full disclosure: You find out at the end it is an ad for a cell phone. But believe me when i say that matters little. The video is remarkable.)

4. Happy that my sweet old cat loves his new bed.

5. Little Bit loving the sunshine on the porch eyeing me suspiciously.

6. Last weekend’s hike in the Virginia mountains. Glorious.

Happy Friday to you, and may your weekend be filled with lots that you love.

    Thank you for that sweet encouragement, Cathy. And PS – I could sit under a sky like that for hours, just soaking it in.

      Shanna, I loved your post so much I emailed to a list of friends I knew would also love it. The emails discussing creativity started to fly back and forth. And so I thought: I should share it on thedailygrace, of course! Am so happy to be blog friends 🙂

Hi. I’m Cathy.

This is a blog about writing, creative living, and grace in the everyday. It’s my hope this little spot on the internet will be for you a place of quiet and reflection, a source for inspiration, and a reminder there’s beauty all around—we simply need to keep our hearts open to see it. Thank you for being here with me.
