If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
Well, I'm home from the mountains and what a wonderful time my daughter and I had!! It is always such a treat to get to stay with my "Northern Sister" and her gentlemanly husband. They are so good at teaching us about the nature that they adore and allowing us to experience some of God's most beautiful country with them.
So here are a few revelations from my respite: (some of them are new...others are gentle reminders to me)
#1. My children will only be able to go where I lead them. If I don't answer the Lord's
calling...neither will they. If I am complacent....they will be quite happy to do nothing
right along with me. (I am still pondering this one.)
#2. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the resistance to fear or mastery of it. It's being
afraid, but managing to do what I know I have to do despite the "feeling" of fear. (I got
this one from the amazing book I am reading~The Final Summit by Andy
Andrews....review post coming soon, by the way.)
#3. It's very healthy to laugh.....and laughter usually follows the choosing of "joy"....which is a
choice I frequently forget to make...in my complaining mind.
#4. I am blessed....very blessed.
#5. I want to live my faith....not just talk about it.....or write about it.
I am certain there are more things that I learned during my journey, but for the sake of time, that will be all for now. Today's verse inspires me to be more aware of His Kingdom purposes~where ever I go...because His plans for my life (and your life too) are far greater than my loveliest dreams could ever imagine!
Thanking Him today....in all things.
