*Taking time to remember those who served this country and are no longer with us*
It's funny, lately I've been feeling a sense of peace.
My nights went from - busy nights working late and jumping into school work; to rushing home from work to get dinner started and appreciating the moments I have to put my feet up on the table and watch Dancing With The Stars. (Old news - but so glad Kelly won, BTW!)
I made a promise to Jesus that with my extra free time, now that I've graduated, I'd give Him more of my time. My nights are often spent diving into the book of John and picking up on things I missed the last time I read it. It's quite amazing to me that there could be so much within each scripture. In fact the more understanding Jesus gives me, it's like a part of my spirit is awakened and I am becoming more alive.
For the first time in my life, I am living.
It's all quite amazing actually...
The peace I have when my house is clean, laundry is done, and I have a plan for taking care of my finances.
The confidence I feel in the choices I make; that I am in full authority and control of my life.
The understanding that when things do not go as planned or chaos is around me, I can focus on Jesus and escape my worries. In fact, I can always do this and He will keep me.
The appreciation I have for those around me; family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and even those I do not know. The beauty of everyone in their own being,
The fascination I have for being swift to hear but slow to speak. Oh, how much more do I grasp!
The gratitude I have for God's plan for me.
Knowing that He is in control and because I understand that, I too am in control. It's funny. I would have never thought these would be my thoughts, but I am so thankful that He has changed my mind. I am being continually transformed and I love every moment of it.
I have also been quite transformed in the kitchen as well.
Haha! Adrian sure appreciates it.
Tonight I'm making sausage and onion flat-bread pizzas.
Have a great week! :)
