Friend, either way, we are always in the middle of something. Often it requires us to put our desires, hopes, and dreams aside for the moment, maybe even a long moment. But why not find a way to hold on to them instead? This might be the better option.
…it made me realize that it’s ok to accept life is hard sometimes and we don’t have to pretend that it’s not. Trying to be super mom, super employee, super caregiver, or super anything doesn’t change that.
I think it’s safe to say that we could apply this “awe walk” concept to life. Savoring the ordinary things that produce extraordinary experiences. The ones you’ll want to remember, like the first time you kissed your partner, watched your child playing in the rain, or that lunch with friends that was so special you saved a napkin and wrote the date on it.
Today I’m resting in this unsettled routine of writing when I can, what I can, for a long as I can. I’m reflecting on why I write and who I write for. And I hoping for the day of resurrection to a new beginning.
Have you ever had a panic attack? Just the name makes me want to run away and hide.
I’m not sure we understood why until much later in life, but now I cherish my parent’s gentle way of communicating the importance of Good Friday through their actions.
It seems that life requires so much of us, but God only asks one thing. By faith alone, accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. In return, we receive His gift of grace and live in the house of the Lord forever (Psalm 27:4).
Be intentional with your time. Caregivers visit your loved one for the sake of your relationship, not only for completing some practical tasks. The laundry can wait. Savor the moments because they may be precious and few.
Mom continues to teach us today with lessons in humility by letting others help her, friendship by showing genuine interest and concern for others, devotion to family and friends through prayer, and loving others through her smile every day.
It is that deep desire to create that kindles our restlessness and brings us joy. The divine influence of the Holy Spirit powers us forward with creative energy. Like a train engine’s wheels turning slowly at first, then building up such unstoppable velocity there is no resistance to its forward motion.
