JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 272 :: goodbye denver

1 Oct

It looks like a sunset but it was a sunrise. 

So much the same. One is a point of inspiration and the other a point of reflection. But both so similar.

As I reflect on my trip I am tired but happy. Also a good combination.

More tomorrow.

GIFT DAY 090: 30-day gratitude challenge: day 14, HOP to it!

31 Mar

Day 14 of the 30-Day Gratitude Challenge over here.

What finds you in AWE today?

  • Is it little girls in pink and green dresses? 
  • Little boys hunting for eggs? 
  • A warm spring morning?

Today I was awestruck by the scene I awoke to on the beach.

easter morning, the promise daily, jamie eslinger

The dogs woke me up early begging – no whining – to go outside. I rolled over and looked at the time on my iPhone. 6:34AM.

“You’ve GOT to be kidding me.” I groaned.

The dogs kept whining and pacing around the bed. Finally, Pup jumped up on top of me as if to say, “Listen lady, we mean biz.”

I grimaced. I groaned. Then acquiesced.

And I’m so glad I did. I would have missed the sunrise. I would have missed this beautiful picture. I would have rolled over and missed the light.

So, today, I am grateful for:

1) An enlightening sunrise
2) Staying in my PJ’s and reading in bed until 3pm
3) Two pups who never let me sleep in

What are your grateful for?
What floats your boat? Gives you faith? Fans the wind beneath your wings? Lightens your load? Rocks your world? Sounds the alarm, wraps you in joy, sends you hopping?

What puts the AWE in your awesome?

More tomorrow.
Lovemore (fearless),

Day 254: walk on water

11 Sep

I’m not really sure what it means to walk on water.

But, the closest I’ve ever seen, with my own eye, was this photo I took at sunrise last week. The deck is just the right color. The sun is at the right angle.

Justin looks like he is almost walking on water.

If walking on water is just an analogy for an impossible act, or a miracle of sorts, then I am believer.

Miracles can happen. I can’t explain them, but I know one when I see one — or rather, feel one.

Sometimes, I sit back in awe at what seems to be the most amazing miracle of all — that huge orb in the sky rising up over the horizon for another chance at another day. One more opportunity to shine.

It’s kind of inspiring isn’t it?
The fact that the sun simply rises.

It’s a comforting feeling really. Never fear, the sun will rise.

It almost makes me feel like I can walk on water.
Rise and shine. 

Day 245: sunrise. sunset.

I. Love. It.
