because that’s usually when we need it the most
& where it shines the brightest.

eating: Rita’s, because 90 degree weather

listening: to One DANCE because it makes me DANCE
& it makes GREG DANCE  which isn’t easy to come by
me dancing + Greg DANCING = is the best way to get me laughing

playing: SNAKE on my phone
yes someone was brilliant enough to make  SNAKE APP
never thought such a simple game could bring me such simple comfort.

wearing : all my Brazilian outfits, because they were made for hot humid days like this

working: on the call to take heart because He has overcome the world.

walking: courageously with my head held high
because despite any trial
 we hold the hands of the one who holds the world 

 realizing: why we chose those songs we sang & danced to on our wedding day 

“all of my life in every season you are still God we have a reason to sing, we have a reason to worship”
“we went dancing in the minefields we went sailing in the storm
it was harder then we dreamed but I believe that’s what the promise is for,
cause He promised not to leave us and his promised not to leave us and his promises are true,
& in the midst of all this chaos baby I can dance with you

Thanks Greg for grounding me in this season, you’re the behind the scenes guy
who reminds me who goes before us & beside us,
& dances with me in the minefields.
eu te amo.
