people-pleasing?

How about Shanda-pleasing?

What would that look like?

It would look simple, and genuine. Relational. Glorifying to God. Grateful, reserved, unseen, known fully by only a select few. Quiet. Life in the kitchen, living room, at the art table, in the laundry room, at the piano, outside, in the forest, on paths, with trees and insects and birds, plants, in all weather.

Music, books, making a home. Conversations, exchanging ideas and things that matter. hugs and kisses, rest, nourishment, peace.

Feeding the hungry and loving everyone who is safe to love and needs what I have to offer, as a gift, my heart.

These sort of things, and more, please me, and delight me.

    • I’m getting over Covid and I’m in Jekyll. I miss my patch of marigolds. The seeds grew like a charm!!! I ended up with about one million marigold plants. I did my best to transplant them around in the various flower beds I have. I miss being in New England mostly because of my plants and my cats………. hugs

      • Praying you feel better soon!!! So hard to be ill away from home (and kitties). Too funny about marigolds. I seem to have done something similar with basil. Haha.
