Good morning, dear friends! It’s good to see you all here after a week of turkey, stuffing, and Black Friday shopping. If you’re anything like me, you need a vacation from your vacation just to breathe.
I traveled the entire week, so I’m a little tired, but I feel blessed to have seen family and friends. I served a little and listened a lot. Along the way, I took a little time to breathe and to just enjoy the beauty all around me. A blogging buddy of mine and a friend from my home town made those suggestions to me after reading my post entitled Waiting. I’m so grateful for their advice. It has made a difference in how I have viewed my world over the past week and how I will approach things going forward.
But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. ~1 Corinthians 15:10
Today I challenge you all to do the two things that my friends challenged me to do:
- Remove the blinders that serve as an Obstruction to all the beauty that surrounds you. Enjoy all that is right in front of you.
- Spend your down time serving others. That can take on many forms. Figure out what that means for you. You might already be doing it.
Before you leave this space, take a few minutes to listen to my Music Monday selection from Jonny Diaz entitled Breathe. Have a wonderful week. May blessings abound! <3
