Sacred moments

My family has had a theme for the days leading up to my father’s passing, and into this week, as we come to his Celebration of Life service today. And it’s:

‘This is a sacred time’

sacred moments

When I think of the word, sacred, I think of God being present.

I think of peace, gratitude, love, compassion and empathy. I think of trusting God and dialing up my faith. I think of quiet, rest and ease.

sacred moments

This specific season in my life has reminded me, that in reality, we can make any moment a sacred moment.

Today on the podcast (scroll down to listen or click here), I honor my dad’s life and talk about sacred time in all of our lives. I also ask you and I to begin recognizing and creating more of these sacred moments—as I know they are available to us if we are willing to receive them.

This is the most intimate and special episode I have ever recorded. I hope you enjoy this sacred moment with me!

Big love,

xo~D
