chantal_wiebe And in my weakness
You are the strength that comes from within
Good Shepherd of my soul
Take my hand and lead me on

chantal_wiebe When we hung out on the porch after dinner. When he took my picture. When he made me laugh.
When I noticed his reflection. When I realized this boy of mine is almost 8. When I had no more words.

chantal_wiebe See, we can take every worry
and insecurity
and regret
and failure
and all the bits of shame and sorrow and guilt

And set them on fire.
Because it’s not that we lack this or that. We’ve just forgotten to use fear as fuel.

Burn. it. all.
And He will give us beauty for our ashes.

chantal_wiebe I've got a lot of questions. And maybes. And what ifs. But I'm choosing to live like He is always the answer. The solution. The way. I just need to trust. #wheremytrustiswithoutborders 2w

chantal_wiebe That time the local pottery artist generously gave my boys clay to use ... Because anyone can be the village. And because art makes the village better. #arteveryday 2w

chantal_wiebe At some point we must decide to work for things or work through things. Choose the latter. Because what we set fire to in our own hearts will light the dark for others. #fieldnotes 2w

chantal_wiebe From our tears this morning. Neither one of us wanted to let go. And it made me very thankful for good teachers and multiage classrooms where his older brother will be with him all day. Because education should feel like family. #firstdayback 2w

chantal_wiebe Where I come from, relationships are stormy and uneasy. But since the day we started dating, I can't even think about this guy without tears. Because in the most ordinary of ways he knows how to love extraordinarily. And that is how, together, we will raise good men. #letlovewin 3w

chantal_wiebe After a very rough day, I didn't really feel like sitting in an outdoor theatre on the coldest night of the summer. But 1 hour before curtain, I was wearing every layer possible and finding my seat. Huddled under a wool blanket, laughing and loving live theatre, I remembered art can live between today and to-do lists. #letartlive #arteveryday 3w
  •   redcanvas I am a to-do-list girl too & totally get this! Theatre helps you to be lost in the moment & enjoy! @chantal_wiebe 3w
  •   little_things33 I love when I see you and your unique, out- of -the -box thoughts show up in my news feed. Your words hit on what is part of my biggest fears of late...that this creative piece of myself that I had shoved away for so long, will go back into hiding amidst juggling so many other important hats. Seems like a silly fear compared to so many other fear provoking situations life has brought before. But creating, being a part of something artistic makes the mundane something of purpose, the difficult something worthwhile, and the joyful times all the more richer. Keep squeezing that art in girl! For it enriches you and flows out to bless the rest of us. 3w
  •   ouranthemishope Yes. Yes. Yes. 3w
  •   chantal_wiebe @redcanvas so agree! I need this reminder often! 3w
  •   chantal_wiebe @little_things33 thanks Angela! There's some magic to art that just keeps us going! 3w
