God's Love Stories ... for September

hibiscus @ the zoo
A short list this month. I'm sure as soon as this is published, I will find more. The theme this month seems to be living with compassion, whether it be talking to those who vehemently disagree with you, saving unwanted lives, and being kind to yourself.
  • this one missed last month's list by minutes. A story of a Chinese woman who rescued 30 babies from the trash, while making her living going through the trash; found via Ann Voskamp.
  • Have Lunch with Your Enemy by Jennifer Louden; found via Liz Lamoreaux's blog. Be sure to watch the TED video she links to at the end of her post: it contains guidelines for such conversations.
  • Emily at Chatting at the Sky posted this as one of her weekend blessings.
And lastly, if you're looking for a way to bring a creative practice (art, writing, photography, etc) into your life and need support cultivating that practice, check out Chickadee Road's Fall Studio Sessions. One of the leader is Liz Lamoreaux of Inner Excavation that helped me look at things in a new way. I signed up!

I was just looking at The Chickadee Road upcoming session last week and considering signing up. Now since you bring it up again, I just might have to! :-)
