My friend has a saying that he uses frequently and it’s “respect the process.” I have heard him say it quite often and honesty I have not always really heard him. Another friend posted on Facebook about how we try so hard to control things that we don’t allow miracles to occur. The two comments came together and caused a perfect storm in my spirit. As the saying goes I was spiritually spanked and grateful for the experience. Did I mention that my scripture reading for today was the icing on the cake! Sometimes I let fear and uncertainty guide me and not the faith that I have built up be my support. I don’t know how things will work out but I am certain it is not my responsibility to know nor is it my job within reason to make it work out.

As we go through this life whether it’s family challenges, navigating a career change, making and losing friendships, we need to stand on our faith, that although may have been tattered and torn, trust it is strong enough to weather any challenge that we may face.

Trying a different genre.

Go Richmond City!

Thought for today.

It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.

Recently I celebrated my daughter’s 20th birthday and it got me thinking about how we wait all year to have the focus on us and in some cases make promises of change for the upcoming year. Why don’t we see each day as a birthday and an opportunity to give life to a long held passion or dream? Is it that we are waiting for  someone’s permission to celebrate ourselves? It is not selfish or conceited to know what you want and to put a plan in place to have those dreams realized. It is a confident person that is able to stay true to themselves while using discernment and wisdom to know the difference between encouragement and criticism from others. Sometimes the road to where you want to be is a long and lonely road but you can not get discouraged and give up when it becomes a little bumpy. We forget that it’s not just about us, there are many parts to put into place for our dreams to come to fruition.  I challenge you to begin viewing set-backs as a delay, an opportunity to learn all you can in preparation to walk boldly into your destiny.

Love my baby girl!
