Lately, I have been reminded to live in the moment. Celebrate the little things. Because the little wins can sometimes bring you the biggest joys...
Take today for example. It was cold outside. In Texas. It was mid 50's and wonderful. I have prayed for Fall weather to make its appearance. and it did. This may seem silly, but PTL for fall!
I completed another day on the couch 2 5K app. This is big people. I hate running. I would rather walk briskly. but my husband loves running. So I do it so that we will have a "hobby" to do together. He runs far ahead of me- and I try to catch up. which has yet to happen... maybe one day. but I run because I know he likes it. This is true love at its finest my friends.
I am cooking and making new things and enjoying time in the kitchen with my hubs. I have always loved to cook but have been afraid to step out of my comfort zone with recipes. Thanks to mixandmatchmama.blogspot.com and her Monday Meal Planning Recipes my kitchen will never be the same, our time spent working together in the kitchen has been fun, and my husband's tummy will always be full! Thank you Lord for this precious time with my husband... continue to show me how I can better spend quality time with him and how I can love him more.
I am learning to truly embrace the season I am in. This is big. and a process. but I am taking steps and trying to process how to understand where I am at. It is weird and uncomfortable. but a growing experience non the less - and I cannot wait to see what is on the other side. God's divine plan for us is such a beautiful thing.
I am realizing/experiencing God's sovereign Grace. This message seems to be in everything I read. in all the conversations I have with friends. and in every Bible study I am doing right now. Obviously God is trying to teach me something! I am finally breaking down and realizing that His Grace is so sweet and nothing compares. My imperfections are made beautiful thru His grace and love! Praise the Lord!
Friends, do not let the little moments pass you by... life is but a fleeting moment. Celebrate the small things so that when your goal has been reached you can look back and see how God intricately laid the plans of your life before your feet.
