  1. A friend posted a link to unclutteredheart.org and I have so enjoyed it every morning this week. I find your words very deep, and very comforting. Glad to know about this blog, too. Happy Advent & best wishes to you in your endeavors. 🙂

  2. Aha! I found you! I stumbled on your post via The Holy Disorder of the Dancing Monks FB page. You might like to know that I have spent the past week reading/praying/contemplating an issue of Weavings/2000 dedicated to humility. I’m not sure you were part of the staff that far back. I mourn the loss of Weavings print version. BUT, I’m glad I found your blog. Love your gentle, insightful, thought-full writing. Please don’t retire, she said selfishly. ~ Carol

    1. Wonderful, Carol. So nice to meet you! I was not directly working with Weavings at that time, but have been in proximity for a number of years. Thank you for sharing how you are using it. Many blessings and gratitude. – Beth

  3. I just finished re-reading your book “Christ Beside Me, Christ Within Me”. It brought back so many wonderful memories of your Wilson grandparents. I especially remember your grandad, Tom, kissing my hand every Sunday morning as I entered the Sanctuary of McFarlin UMC. Having first attended McFarlin in 1946, I am still an active member at McFarlin. Because of changing times, and especially during this COVID isolation, Tom would, definitely, not recognize those who are now “Greeters”. Again, “Thanks for the memories “. Linda Goodman
