Mark sent this to me today as some encouragement. Moses does this all the time and as a result there are little foot and hand prints climbing up my doorways....although this should not be my cue if I am getting it right it did make me think that I might be doing o.k.! ;)
Life has somehow taken on an accelerated pace since December. In October I was feeling restless and even prayed, "Lord, I am feeling bored and long for something more." Little did I know what I was asking for. December arrived and along with the holidays came Mark's lay off from work, the start of a small group at our home every week, the incorporation of Mark's new photography/coaching business, and a change in schedule of life as it was.
Life is really good it just feels more full...
And I am continuing learning to let go....it seems like such a simple thing but in the midst of transition I tend to clench up when I can't see how everything is going to work. I find myself frantically cleaning my house or trying to bring order to the chaos and then freaking out when someone messes something up. I realized this is in part because I feel like I need to hold everything together. Instead of running to the Lord with my fears and worries I have held them inside which makes me tense and not always fun to be around. But when I am at rest I can enjoy the transition more and my eyes can be opened to see the goodness that surrounds me.
So on that note here are a few goals and aspirations for 2012 starting with letting go and trusting God more....
|Laugh more and often...|
|Capture moments in time through photography and blogging...|
|Keep the focus on being POSITIVE|
|Trust God's timing|
|Don't lose focus on the big picture and get caught up on details|
|Less attitude and more GRACE|
|Take more time to color, laugh and just be with those I love|
|Don't sweat the small stuff....|
even if it means small pieces of legos all over my house!
|See more sunrises|
|Embrace the chaos and the messes...|
|Don't take life so seriously!|
Here's to the new year ahead ...new beginnings, new transitions and new adventures.
We're off to a great start...
