There is a stillness that invites me to relax, to sit with God & breathe in goodness, courage, strength & love. I am a tiny speck in this vast world & I have all that I need.
No class or homework for 6 weeks. My cup runneth over. I shall get myself to a coffee shop (starting today) to meet with some of my favorite people that I haven’t seen in forever….⭐️
I’m accepting my contradictions more readily as opposed to lambasting myself. We are all “walking dichotomies.” Instead of focusing on the irritations this may cause, I’m able to celebrate this~we are all so fascinating!!
My recent dreams have reminded me that there is always hope….I may spin a story that things are awful & beyond repair & then I see the truth~there are solutions that I refused to notice~until they show themselves in my slumber….
Some mornings I wake up with excited dancing energy coursing through my body & thankfully I feel it today! There’s no big celebration today~me & the rain and the ongoing paper, the pets & the piping chai latte and the beautiful man. Woah~maybe there is a celebration! Let’s get this party started….
The next right action is to nurture relationships: the ones I already have that can be strengthened & new ones, with people I’ve yet to meet. It’s really what life is all about…
The air is sweet & brisk on this late June morning. Rain will be falling soon. It’s good inspiration to buckle down & attack my last paper for this school year. The impact of the Psalms on my life is first on tap. Psalm 139❤️❤️❤️
Life is a journey, a teacher & the most precious of things. I often take life for granted knowing how foolish that is.
Everything & everyone looks brighter & more beautiful when I’m focused on gratefulness. Crisper colors, cherished talents, even a celebration of “quirks” that would’ve sent me running in previous days.
Gratefulness invites me to be filled with Grace and to extend it to others which is something I’m truly focusing on these days. When I extend grace my heart opens & my mindset is altered. Good stuff!
There is an abundance of grace to be had~for myself & others. There’s absolutely no reason not to offer grace. It’s free & it opens up the world! Here’s the thing: it’s just life….focusing on the beauty every chance we have is the way to go!
I love to tent camp & we are going on a short trip tomorrow! There’s nothing like spending time hiking & foraging in the woods all day, coming back to build a fire, read a book by the crackling fire & sleep under the stars. Can’t wait!!
Today I am grateful for the amazing teachers in my life. They’re all around me & sometimes it takes me awhile to “get the lesson” (who knows how many times I’ve completely missed the message)….but, they keep showing up & it’s amazing! So thankful!!!
I haven’t felt this light in many decades, Howie & I know it won’t last. So, I’m gonna try to bask in it. Meet ya at a coffee shop anytime….
Haha. Still love your adventuresome spirit!
