"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Moving On Through

I have been so busy this week and I can't really pin down exactly what it was that kept me so busy!!!  Have you ever had days or weeks like that? 


Sometimes if I'm not careful, I can be too hard on myself, if I haven't met up to my OWN expectations! We can be our own worst enemy when we do this to ourselves. 

"I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection.  Excellence, I can reach for, perfection is God's business."

Michael J. Fox

I think I need to make some changes, throw off the perfectionistic blanket and run out and do something like this...........

Yes, making snow angels is the perfect plan!  (Oops, there I go again, using that word perfect!)  Okay... I'm moving on......I'm starting to smile again........I'm getting more energy back........I'm having fun.....I'm ....I'm back to myself!!!  Yeahhhh!!!!!!  And all it took was remembering this: 
 You and I are human and God created each of us special.  He knows we will have moments of sadness, tiredness, boredom, you name it...... whatever it is He already knows about it and has a plan to revive our spirit and to fill us up with the kind of joy that only comes from Him.

So don't be so tough on yourself.  Instead,  be kind to yourself when you have moments like this.

" I rejoice heartily in the Lord, in my God is the joy of my soul."

Isaiah 61:10

Anyone care to make some snow angels with me?

Lee Ann,

I'd love too and so much more, build a snow man, have a snow ball fight and just lay in the snow and listen to the quietness and spend time with the Lord.
