One of my favorite things is our family group texting stream. Woke up to this photo from South Africa of two of the community leaders on the #ServeSouthAfrica team who get things done for hundreds of vulnerable kiddos and their families. Love seeing them still wearing their @kraftykash necklaces! Love seeing the millions of ways women are changing the world all over the world through practical, every day service.

paytonjunkin : Awesome! @lisajobaker
kraftykash : You just made my entire week. ❀️ Love this photo for so many reasons. πŸ˜€

So good to see the blue skies again after weeks of gray. And first time in weeks there's finally no more snow on the ground. First day of Lent and I'm so grateful for a God who brings all dead things back to life.
heatha100 : Please send it our way! Webs been snowy for three months! I bought gardening gloves this week bc it will will the spring here!
graceforteachers : Yes!

Pausing in the afternoon for tea and (sometimes) milk tart or other snacks. Favorite. This photo from tea last week with @christiepurifoy as I have the kettle on over here in the middle of the snowy afternoon. Link to the milk tart recipe in my profile if you wanna make it yourself. Super easy. Makes 2. Good excuse to celebrate ordinary Tuesday afternoons. #itsimplytuesday PS: Milk pitcher moo cow and sugar bowl from @thepioneerwoman's new line -too die for cute- and sweet journal from @incourage.

Enjoy with me please my current outfit. What you can't see are the leggings and boots I have on underneath. Yes you heard that right, underneath, my awesome flannel Christmas pajama pants. Complemented, naturally, by my 10 year old Detroit Lions sweatshirt. Work from home – where comfort meets doing whatever it takes to stay warm while staring at a computer screen for hours on end. You're welcome.
lisajobaker : @lisamhurley yes!! Cheers fellow working mama!!
agraceaday : πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ
_shannaleigh : @lisajobaker you have my #dreamjob - really!
small_moments.sacred_life : Love it! I am unshowered and in my pjs but it is technically my Sunday as I worked the past weekend so I'm running with that!!
heatha100 : Lol I got dressed today and went shopping in -8 degrees on Main Street. I missed my warm pants the whole time;)
jeanniemkeen : Gotta do what ya gotta do! You're rocking it, Momma!
jacquelynarends : #solidarity πŸ™Œ

"Stop trying to protect, to rescue, to judge, to manage the lives around you... Remember that the lives of others are not your business. They are God's business. Even your own life is not your business. It is also God's business." - Frederick Buechner Last week I finished Jan Karon's newest in the Mitford Series - Come Rain, Come Shine. And I've now lost track of the number of quotes I've written down from it. Anytime life feels too loud or I feel too small, Father Tim and family remind me that quiet can be a calling and small can be just the right size.

Sometimes I think we under estimate the capacity our Littles have for friendship. Ever since our move to MD every now and again I will walk into Zoe's room and find her crying. Who knew you could find your best friend at age 3? Because she hasn't been able to get over hers. Their names are both Zoe and today we took an impromptu trip back to Virginia so that these two Littles could be reunited. They May be in preschool but their friendship is much older than that. #FriendshipOnPurpose

jacquelynarends : This is so precious! πŸ’•
mrsemilyray : So true! When I was in preschool my best friend moved to Ohio and we definitely missed each other! We only kept in touch for a short time but when she moved back to Tennessee 11 years later she was put in my class by request and it was like we were never separated.
motaungs : Yep. My ten-year-old met her best friend when she was five months old. They've spend five of their ten years on different continents, and still miss each other like crazy.
emilym.king : @clairebintz
traciveek : How precious, Lisa-Jo. So glad and encouraged you see, understand, and meet the needs of your kiddos, sweet mama. #HighFive
clairebintz : @emilym.king I was going to tag you too!! 😭
texy_ : We are lucky that we have a group of 10 Zoes- it just took us a little longer to find our Zoes than it took Zoe to find her Zoe! ;)

This has never happened to me before. But when we went through the drive-through this morning the car in front of us had paid for our order. I wish I had taken a picture of the cashiers face. He was grinning from ear to ear when he told me this cycle had been going on for over 15 minutes of cars paying for the person behind them. Well, believe me, we were not about to break that chain of awesomeness! So we paid for the car behind us too. And grinned back at the two cashiers who are smiling with the excitement of two kids sharing a secret. Then Zoe and I drove away with our bagels and drinks and all the warm fuzzies you could ever want on a Saturday morning. #RandomActsOfKindness #1000Gifts

jameejb : Love this!!!!! πŸ’—β˜•οΈπŸ©
thirdculturemama : You might have started something @lnost :-)
unsupermommy : Our local Christian radio station encourages people to do this every Friday!
gracelaced : Love
lnost : I love this so much!!
paulastaste : It's called the Drive Thru Difference here. Our radio station, KTIS encourages it.
megansmckenzie : Drive thru difference! KTIS!
capturethesparkle : This happened to me at chickfila once. Someone paid (partially) for our $25 order. But my car was filled with screaming children and chaos and the daily crazies of five kids and I couldn't figure out why our meal wasn't as expensive as usual. I kept telling the cashier she must have got the order wrong. But she was telling me someone paid for our meal partially and being the 9th car in line to participate and did I want to continue the chain.... But I was just bewildered and flustered and I gave up trying to communicate (read I wasn't actually listening to her) and I checked to make sure I had all five kids meals and I DROVE AWAY. and then I realized what happened. And I felt like the worlds biggest Scrooge. Ha! Oh well. Life goes on πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
