A life of intention bound by love and maybe coffee


I’ve sipped the last drop of my bullet proof coffee.

John Coltrane Melodies dance in the sunlight as I read a little of the book ‘Organizing for the spirit’ which is by internationally recognised professional organiser Sunny Schlenger.

How can we Organise better the ‘stuff’ in our lives?

We need to shift our perspective.

Do you wish to be Martha or Mary? 

Sure, we need to clean and organise, run the kids around, live in this busy world but not of it.  

What do I mean by not being of the world? I mean not attached to it, our things, our life, our people.

 Like Christ,  we are just passing by.  This walk of life is the beginning of a journey, one that lives intentionally with God’s will in mind, dying to ourself, so that when we pass we can actually start to live!  

God does not say, “In exchange for your own heart, I will give you a will of pure spirit”.  No, He gives us a heart, a human heart, like Christ’s.  I don’t have one heart for loving God and another for loving people.  I love Christ and the father, the Holy Spirit and our Lady with the same heart with which I love my family, my friends. I shall never tire of repeating this.  We must be very human, for otherwise we cannot be divine’. Josemaria Escriva, Christ is passing by.

Living a life of intention where we are not bound by ‘our own stuff’.  

Where we are not bound by anything.  

Where we can be family because of our love not our blood.

Where we can love each other as brother and sister.  Because the same people who we live with on earth are going to be the same people we will live with forever in heaven!

Where we say we’re going to do something, we are men of our word, we follow through, we do it!

We’re we have no regrets.  Like not seeing your dear friend who has now passed.  Where we say goodbye to another moving on because we said we would. Where we hurt as we let people go because we need to.  Where we learn from our mistakes, ask for forgiveness, forgive others and move on.

It’s good to let our food ferment because it’s better for our bodies.  

I made cream cheese by hanging it in a tea towel and letting the whey drain away to be used in mayonnaises later on.

The jam is sugar free by slow cooking organic berries with chia seeds on the stove.

The sour dough toast which is from the shop, is a rare, once in a blue moon treat for me and because I forgot to make myself a protein batter bowl last night. 

Preparing good food is important. Working in my kitchen is good. But listening to God is better.

So let it not be said that we didn’t listen to God and put our love into action.
‘It isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do’ Jane Austen.

The melodies have stopped, the sun has risen and it’s time to get on with the day. But more coffee first. 

I intend on getting some things done this week that I said I would do, you pray for me and I’ll pray for you!

Blessings this Sunday,
Leah 🌿☕️🌹

  1. I’m so bumbling with household and social things that I think I missed a calling to be a nun. It just wasn’t an option as a Protestant – Oooops! 🙂

    Our friend who is leaving has given me courage to be a contemplative in the place where God has brought me – which thankfully includes friends like you who bear with me and pray for me. Rest assured that I pray for you, too!
