Who knew the past few months would have gone the way they did. I suppose it is just life. No one can plan it or make it follow a certain set way. You can only live it. Take what you have been given and run with it. If you don't then you have nothing to stand on and you cease making headway. Even the smallest steps are steps that keep you moving and moving forward. There are times that are good and times that are bad. It is during those bad times you learn about yourself. Your courage, your strength, the things that shake you to the core, your determination, your faith and trust in your Jesus. Sure there are those times that you want to go find a closet somewhere and close yourself up in it and cry yourself a puddle but you just can't. Not in that moment. Later. In it's own time. Things have taken a turn down a less hectic and troublesome road in the last weeks and the break is welcome. It's time to breath, breath deeply. To rest fully, mentally and physically. To be able to turn our focus to the simple and easy things around us. Truly those are the things that really matter. None of the busyness or lists of things that we think need to be accomplished. It is all of the little things that are so important and should not be overlooked or taken for granite.
