As far as the east is from the west, is how great my love is for you...
HOPE was travling south bound, as LOVE traveled east. There appears to have been a malfunction with the signaling device. HOPE and LOVE collide. There sat LOVE, a mangled wreck. HOPE sped away.
What does LOVE do when HOPE is gone?

Let me tell you that the small business that my husband and I started less than 2 years ago has tripled in size. Then take a minute to look at the picture. Specifically the glorious magnificent clouds and light shining down upon us. It makes you think doesn't it?
|I couldn't make this up.... *blank stare|
I spend most of my time trying to apply what I know to my life. Some of the main biblical principals I live my life by are:
- Move in love. That was Jesus' final commandment before The Ascension. It's not an option or a suggestion.
- The actual deeper meanings in the Bible often come from the underlying concept that is being portrayed, and not necessarily the action itself. Don't make a doctrine out of everything you read a biblical figure did.
- Worship is a lifestyle not an event. I believe our entire existence has been fashioned to glorify God.

My darling boy's growth spurts are spiraling out of control. In just the last month he's gained another half inch in height and don't even get me started on his shoe size. He told me this morning he needs more shirts. Shopaholic that I am, I was more than happy to oblige setting out to find him some new ones :)

I was rushing to get my son out the door and to the bus. He stopped as he stepped over the threshold and looked at me. "Are we running so late? We don't have time to pray?"
I pray with my kids everyday before they head off to school. It's an important part of exercising my faith. I am absolutely inclined to believe that God hears me when I pray. More importantly, it's an opportunity for me to speak positive helpful things into their lives that they can recall throughout the day. I remind them of who they are, what we are trying to instill in them, and the values they should both present and represent to those who come across their paths.
Most of us who are in the throws of parenting often wonder wether we're doing a good enough job. I WANT to talk the talk AND walk the walk. Every stage of parenting, as your child grows, has it's challenges. I have to be honest. This situation felt like one of the most honorable instances I have ever been in. If a prayerful spiritual person is who I am in the minds of my children, I am one happy woman.

I've always heard that every 10 years or so, you can look back and see a huge change in who you are. I have always maintained that I have essentially been the same person as long as I can remember. If you knew me in high school, and you know me now... there's not going to be a large change in my overall character.
Sure my priorities have changed as life has changed. I'm married, I'm a mother I've received more formal education etc... but the essence of who I am.... solid as a rock. (You read my poem right?) I'm fine with that. I'm actually pretty happy with that. But I am sensing not an "evolution" of myself. I am sensing a that I am on the brink of an "aha revelation". Until that occurs, I'll bite my tongue on what I've been going through.
I'm just very thankful for a girlfriend that will sit and talk and explore life with me. I adore her! I am blessed to have a partner that will link up with me, and wade through this complicated situation we refer to as living. I love him!
For now I am content to stay open and ready to receive the knowledge and wisdom that will undoubtedly come. I'm sure it will manifest in an unction of the spirit, a dream, or by a powerful revelation. It's almost within reach...

More on this topic later I'm sure
