Right now however I am striving to really throw myself into life right now. I'm not dis content with my life... but I'm not so sure I'm content either. Somehow I feel that is ok though. To be striving for more. To be more than a fan. Not so much ignoring today and reaching for tomorrow but trying to make the very most of today. Right now.
I feel like I am talking in circles but my point is that God has put me in this place, newly married, with an ok job and very little "real" stress to accomplish something. I want to channel that growing ache to do something into really making a difference for the kingdom.
God really has made my life beautiful and I want to soak it all in, I'm excited for the adventure that lies ahead but for today I want to shine bright. I have a dear friend who is such a light. She always has been, just vibrant, lovely, energetic personality. She is setting out this week on what I consider a HUGE adventure and it makes me so ready to GO and DO but I pause to remember that God has been molding her and shaping her for some time for this and that I still have to allow Him to make the changes in me that I will need for my next big adventure. I have huge aspirations to really leave a legacy, but I guess what I'm saying is it really is the small decisions in day to day life that add up to my life as a whole.
For today I am enjoying wearing my TOMS knowing somewhere there is a person that has the sister pair, who needs the protection for their precious feet.
I will try with all that is in me to speak love to all that I come in contact with, knowing that I may be the only Jesus they may see all day. That is a heavy responsibility.
I want to water my lovely flowers on my front porch in hopes that they will brighten somebody's day as much as they do mine.
I WILL stop, pause, reflect and pull over on the side of the road to capture the sunset.
I will fall in love all over again with the only really lover of my soul that romances me each day and longs that I have faith to believe and make those little choices to add up to a life time legacy.
Have you ever been in that place...
