I’m sitting here eating a Healthy Choice meal while my husband is on his way home from work. I love these because they are actually not filled with too much fake stuff and taste like Olive Garden while I am at my desk or on the couch listening to a podcast while I eat. Right now, it’s the desk which I normally don’t do: mixing lunch with work. Today I’ve been planning out important dates for the year. Something many people may preach about doing the December before, but I am learning steadily and slowly how to get better at this, and am so excited for how far I’ve come!
The Unglamorous Daily Grind
My dogs are currently wrestling across the floor shoving papers from here to Kingdom come…papers I was “trying” to organize but looks like square one is getting closer by the minute, haha.
My candle is burning hard but I’m going to have to get a stronger one since the smell of puppy is taking over these days. Obi is fun, but is there a dog-friendly necklace/freshener? ^_^
I am working hard at editing Wild Hope, but since I pushed the pub date back peace has come to hug me and I am learning my body and mind just can’t quite match the speed of my vision. And that’s okay–I am willing to be patient. Getting things done right, and having peace + order in my home is super important to me.
The daily grind doesn’t always feel lovely or look glamorous but I can look back at last year with my jaw to the floor. I began writing Organic Love in JUNE. JUNE. Y’all, time flies. So the ministry of showing up, doing the work, and being thankful for it is really impacting my soul-joy. How about you?
This year my #OneWord2019 has me opening up to friends and church family more, which has always been hard for me to do. I am pretty private person, and when I do share, writing takes the cake as far as conveying how I feel. When I speak, it’s like a lodged frog tries to confuse the listener. I am not the most eloquent but God keeps putting me in places where I have to speak up (eek!) in life, in many areas. Talk about growing those weak muscles!
In Sunday school the past two weeks, I taught the same lesson to the chillens’…about how Jesus asked Peter (and asks us), “Who do YOU say that I am?” I think it’s powerful, and goes to show the beauty of a personal relationship with our Maker. I highly recommend Beautiful Outlaw. It makes my heart soar.
