Wholehearted Living

AllOutCollage

In Brene Brown’s book, The Gifts of Imperfection, she talks about Wholehearted Living. I keep reading and re-reading this book as it contains so much that is good for continuing to live wholeheartedly even when life is so very FULL! As we careen to our son’s graduation this Friday, party on Saturday and all end-of-school-year events, my heart is indeed very full.

In an interview with Jonathan Fields, Brene Brown said this word “wholehearted” is from a prayer of confession out of the Book of Common Prayer which reads, “Lord, we have not loved Thee with our whole hearts…”

This is my daily prayer.. knitted into every stitch,  drawn in each line,  collaged with every shape…

“May I love Thee and all that Thou hast made with my whole heart, mind, soul and strength.”

I think it would be cool, in my slash title/description for it to read:

Artist/knitter/mother/wife/teacher/beautycatcher/wholeheartedliver!

Hm…not “liver” as in the part of the body, but, well…you know what I mean! 😉
