  1. Thank you for this beautiful post. It is true, we must love when it’s hard and risky…when we’re the most vulnerable.

  2. Thank you for the great post Sarah. I am learning to live a full life. I shared a post (Simplify) I wrote recently about a realization I’ve had lately about learning to simplify my life. I’m still walking through that (I suppose I always will be) but thank you for giving me a place to share that journey will others.

  3. beautiful. i linked up my story – the part of my life where i was away but chose to walk home to the father with outstretched arms. funny, the book i wrote about that timne period? entitled, Full.

  4. For me, looking to the past is an inspiration. I come from a long line of women who held their families up in prayer. I am so grateful for their faithfulness and I honor their memory in my post that I linked up, I Am Rich.

  5. Timing is everything – truly.
    Turning on my computer, catching the twitter stream just at the right moment.
    Arriving here on this beautiful heartfelt post …
    God’s timing.
    I am going to read all of these entries now, just need another cup of coffee and time to settle myself in 😉

  6. This was good timing and easy to write as I was trying to come up with a way to write about my week. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I linked twice because the linky said it did not take or something, so feel free to delete one (#15 and 16 right now)

    I enjoyed your post as well.

  7. Thank you for pointing out that I have gotten hard! Now I have to deal with it! I was perfectly fine living in ignorance. LOL Really- Thank you for your post. I was truly convicted by the Holy Spirit and have repented. I am a pastor’s wife and sometimes its just easier to become cold and hard. Its much harder to lay your tender heart out there knowing it will get stepped on. Not always intentional but the pain is the same. Again, thank you for your obedience!

  8. Beautiful post. It’s only when I fully accept God’s love for me, and love myself, that I can in turn love others well. I linked up today! Have a fabulous day!

  9. When I realize God is in control of my life and what happens, and I just need to love those who sometimes annoy me, because he loves me no matter what I do.

  10. This was beyond timely for me today and can only be attributed to God directing my hand on the mouse to click on my (in)courage link! I am reminded over and over again about how much grace He extends to me and how I fail to extend that same grace to those in my life who are so very difficult to love. And after many hurtful encounters we tend to believe the lie that they don’t deserve our grace and forgiveness and LOVE and yet how absolutely, totally undeserving am I of the mercy and love He gives me?! Thank you for the reminder today! 🙂

  11. Living Life to the Full is …. “Where I place the most important things in My Life”
    Things being…. values, me as a woman, a partner, a friend… and so on.
    placing my values with my Faith in Jesus
    placing my style as classic as Audrey Hepburn
    placing my motherhood as individual as each of our 5 children are unique
    placing my marriage as the most valuable relationship I have aside from God (who is 1st)
    it is where I place myself !
    That, alone … makes me a secure woman who is living life to the Full 🙂
    Blessings to your day !

  12. Living life to the full? Starting each day by knowing that God is in control. Not only knowing this but believing this, which is the hardest thing to do. But, God is in control and I am so very thankful because I wouldn’t know what to do many times.
