Grateful ….

2015.  It has been an interesting year.  I’m had some incredible highs, and some seemingly unbearable lows.  Yet as I spent time praying this morning, I felt so truly thankful and grateful to God for this past year of life.  The highs have kept me encouraged, and motivated.  The lows have kept me prayerful, and focused on what really matters.  Challenges have helped me become stronger and wiser in a myriad of ways, and learn to listen more attentively to God’s voice.  It’s been a journey, and I’m sure each one of you can relate.  But I feel so blessed for this journey, for all I’m learning and for continued growth.

So excited for what 2016 has in store!

May you continue to move forward in all that God has for you!

Happy New Year.

Staying Above Water

Drowning

Some days I think I’m drowning. I get that feeling … everything seems blurry, all running together, and all I can try to do is survive and head for shore (in this case, rest). I occasionally would love to have a camera follow me around all day. Not because I want to be a reality star – but because I don’t think people would believe how crazy my days are. From running around for my boys, special projects, meetings, article deadlines and interviews, helping hubby and an evening event, then sprinkle in a once in a lifetime opportunity for the kids – it’s all I can do at this point to type and think straight.

Especially at times like these I am thankful for God’s grace. I am thankful for His peace. And I am thankful for His provision. There is no way I could live my life on my own strength – honestly, I don’t think anybody could! (My life is not for the faint of heart, lol). But eventually, things will slow down, I will get the rest I need, and I’ll wonder how I made it through. Only by the grace of God . . . as He carries me to shore.
