"Please, help spread the understanding that the R word is not what Ms Coulter insists. It does not mean “loser” or “idiot or “moron” as she stated. It represents years and years of hurt to those who could not stand up for themselves. "

A year ago, I wrote a post about why I feel so strongly about ending the use of the R word. Retarded. Today, March 4, 2015, is again a day for spreading the word that the R word is outdated and hurtful to so many people.

Hey Soul? so yeah, there are things this week that look like the Gigantic Impossibles --- and change seems slow & small & practically invisible. 
But Change is a Seed. And Gigantic Beanstalks grow from seeds that are small & don't look like they're doing anything at all. 
Growth is a slow & sacred process, not some abracadabra magic show.
Every minute of faithfulness is a seed that God will faithfully grow into profound change. 
"Grow in grace...." (2Pet3:18) By His grace -- let Him grow just one faithful minute & then one more seed-minute of faithfulness & then just one more....
And God grows each of those seed-minutes into the Gigantic Possible, by His grace.
Grace always startles. 
Grace always stuns.
Grace is always what we all need.

I recently had someone ask me if they should keep going on dates after they get married. Absolutely!! In fact, this week on our date, my husband & I did a crazy little scavenger hunt through a nearby store. I've posted a downloadable list today on our blog for the next time you're looking for something fun to do with your honey! #datenightideas #datenight
