Days of Being: October 18 (Anna Nash)

It stopped me in my tracks—a feather hidden among the vibrant green leaves, perfectly camouflaged, mimicking the surrounding shapes. But I saw it in the wispy tangle. God’s beauty (a prayer? an echo? a hint?) resting at my feet.

This entry is inspired by an ordinary moment from one of Anna Nash’s October 18s. Anna is an entrepreneur who has a passion for helping people be the best they can be in life and work. As a Life Coach, Anna focuses on helping people find their God-given purpose. Beacon People, a non-profit organization, was birthed out of this calling. Anna is an idea girl who loves brainstorming, networking, and marketing and is the author of pathFinder, A Journey Towards Purpose. Her gifts lie in connecting people and opportunities that benefit them and give them a place to make impact. She resides in Birmingham, Alabama, and is married to her high school sweetheart, Tyler. They have 4 grown children and a Labradoodle named Nate.

Days of Being is a micro-story project exploring memories and moments from every day of the year. Multiple years from my life and others’ lives are represented within the project celebrating what Madeleine L’Engle once said: “I am still every age that I have been.”
