slipped & slid to chase down the last rays of frosty sun in today’s winter skies. so worth it.
I took this photo & then my phone died & whoosh. pinks & oranges like crystal, tropical flames in every direction. an even greater masterpiece unfolded & there I was alone & still on a big rock looking at an even bigger world feeling like the tiniest, most known & loved wide-eyed little kid. makes you want to shout & laugh & hold your breath all at once.
stopping & just being is something I’m learning to savor more & more. last semester my goal was to focus less on school & focus more on relationships. so many blessings. these are my intentions for this new semester... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟spring semester 2018: 🌟
» let love run your schedule. welcome interruptions & value being over doing.
» be willing to disappoint people in order to love & obey the Lord.
» say no to the things you are not called to carry so you can say yes to the things the Lord has given you.
» ask for help when you need it. run to help when others need it; run towards their hurt. » answer honestly when someone asks how you’re doing instead of “good. busy.”
» remember the Sabbath & keep it holy. put down your phone, no “catching up” on laundry, cleaning, homework, etc. the Lord deserves your attention. » perfect is the enemy of good. do your best & let it be. work hard, rest well, & be wise enough to leave some things undone.
invest in what ultimately matters. love & give & chase down adventures. ❄️
