"Greetings, favored woman!  The Lord is with you!"  ~Luke 1:28

"Be a dwelling space for God."

"There is no need to produce or perform or perfect---simply become a place for God.  That is all."

"Because God knows:  relations is the only reality; there is nothing else."

"Everything is given from heaven.  Everything is a gift."

"Simply come, bend, make a space, receive."

"Your greatest gift is not your gifts, but your surrendered yes to be a space for God."

Make space for Jesus.

Advent Day 21:  "Prepare the way for the LORD'S coming!"  ~Matthew 3:3

"You felt that road--how it can twist, right there in your gut.  Expectations can ride like highwaymen, ransacking joy, killing relationships.  Performance bandits can choke mercilessly at the jugular, steal the riches of His grace." ~Ann Voskamp

"There is only room in us when we are done with us" ~Ann Voskamp

"Rest happy as only children can be happy in the days before Christmas.  Rest happy and love this story of a coming King who prepares the downtrodden for Christmas by becoming the Way, who lays Himself down in the creche, on the Cross, so we can lie down and rest."  ~Ann Voskamp

"There is this. Never doubt that there are two kinds of doubt: one that fully lives into the questions, and one that uses the questions as weapons against fully living."  ~Ann Voskamp    And that is a bam statement right there!!!
