Maybe it's kind of weird, but I wanted to share
Okay, as you know, I love music. I think I never got over being a DJ in college. I actually make weekly playlists for a favorite pilates class I take at the Y. (It was a good deal for me, because we were doing the same routine to the Virgin Suicides soundtrack for almost 6 months straight when I started. Depressing! The teacher was grateful for my offer and the participants seem pleased.)
I started creating sharable public playlists from those classes whenever they line up in ways that especially flow.
To be clear, I have two Spotify accounts. There's one that I've had for years as a test kitchen of sorts. (It's also where I can listen to Nickelback in private if I need to...and I can give you that address if you want it.) The other is my more pubic page and I want to give you a link to
So, I do a devotional practice almost every day. I find if I take the time to breathe, read, and pray; it greatly affects my quality of life. I have a bit more patience, groundedness and inspiration--all things I need every day.
I have the privilege of calling my sister in New York most mornings and we most often do the daily devotional put out by (get ready) Joyce Meyer. I know, I know, yes, the TV evangelist lady.
I am a convert. This woman is a bold-speaking 73 year old divorced, remarried, horrific sexual abuse survivor who has fought breast cancer, lost a brother to suicide and preaches not becoming a victim, but being pro-active with God in your faith. I say YES to this, especially as I have spent the last few years working on some deep areas of pain and hurt in some of some similar areas. So, judge if you want. Or visit her daily devotional here, and bookmark it. Wherever you are on your journey...you may be surprised.
