pennywise

Last month, when many were naming their year, "The year of...", I, at first, couldn't come up with any one thing that stuck out to me.  I then wrote a post about a new kind of year.  God was opening doors to something new.  Indeed it has been already full of new things for me and I am so enjoying them all. 
Since then, God has further blessed my spirit in many ways and has invited me into an especially sweet reunion with Him during Bible study and worship. 
However, things aren't as they used to be...they have changed.  Change occurs whether we want it to or not.  Although some changes are more difficult than others, it's through these times that God reveals Himself faithful, mighty, and constant.  He never changes (Malachi 3:6; Revelation 4:8).  He is as great in the tough times as He is in the bountiful times.  I love this about my God! 
I am welcoming the changes taking place.  It's refreshing to see things coming together as only God could arrange.  I also find it quite humorous that the change in our pockets reminds us what to do during the rearranging times of our lives...I quote from the penny, "In God We Trust".  He is trustworthy through the changes taking place and I desire to be found even more pennywise as this year progresses.

  3. I think change is the water God sprinkles on His clay to make it malleable in His hands. It's a good thing but sometimes messy.

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
