“We all make mistakes but people forget them. And Jonah days come to everybody… This day’s done and there’s a new one coming tomorrow, with no mistakes in it yet.” Marilla

The holidays can seem like “A whole string of Jonah-days brazenly begging you to head in the opposite direction, to get away from the dark underbelly of people and agendas and loving the unlovely and loud.”

Don’t you just want to run away sometimes? I do. I want to go sit on a beach alone. With a book. And a fancy drink in a coconut. And pretend that my troubles don’t exist.

“You aren’t equipped for life until you realize you aren’t equipped for life. You aren’t equipped for life until you’re in need of grace.”
