Michelle and Gary are having a gloriously great time in Italy...
and Michael and I are having a gloriously great time here with the girls!
We have had the honor of sending them off on their first day of school...
and last night, sitting around the dinner table, we picked random letters of
the alphabet and started listing all the things we were thankful for that
began with that letter. Somehow we got to cracking up and we were laughing
so hard I cried!! I haven't done that in so long... and it felt so good.
I am blessed.
This morning Jessica asked me if I was missing our old house. I realized in
that moment that I truly am not. I am learning... all over again... how to let
go and let God have His way in every area of my life.
I know His plans for me, for us, and for you... are all good.
As I was praying this morning and thanking Him for what He's doing
in our lives, I journaled what I heard God saying to my heart
and wanted to share it with you...
Today is a new day of unexplored territory… never-before-lived moments…
uncharted oceans of opportunity. But every moment you spend dwelling on
the past… longing for what was or wondering about what could have been…
is a moment you’re missing out on the blessings I have in store for you for
today… moments designed especially for you to discover Me in your midst
and delight in My Presence. Keep learning to let go of what lies behind you
so that you can stay focused forward with a sense of exploration and joyful
expectation of what is yet to come.
My heart is encouraged by God's grace and sovereignty... hope yours is too.
Love and hugs...
“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:12)
