  1. What a great encouragement to start off a week promising to be fraught with more on my plate than I can accomplish. What can I learn from being over worked instead of look at all I failed to get done! Thank you & keep writing. You are such an encourager!

  2. Thank you for such encouragement. I tend to criticize myself way to often .You’ve given me inspiration for today.

  3. Thank you, Holley for such encouraging words. They spoke straight to my heart. When my past efforts seem to have all gone for nothing, it has been very difficult to give myself grace. But I am learning (slowly) to accept that God knows that I did my best and since He doesn’t condemn me, I need to not condemn myself. God bless you. 🙂

  4. Holley,

    It is so easy to condemn ourselves. We see our past failures & label ourselves as “dumb, stupid, not good enough”. We bemoan each mistake & goof as if it were a catastrophic event & not some minor infraction. Why can’t we be curious & kind to ourselves? Why is it we have to beat ourselves up over seemingly insignificant mishaps? Asking God to help us all be more like Eula & get curious. Learn from our past. Keep growing, improving & offering ourselves grace like Jesus does daily.

    Blessings 🙂
