What I Know Today

  • Our greatest trials in life can have a way of becoming, or perhaps leading to, our greatest blessings.
  • Where ever you are in life, right now, today- it's perfect.  You are exactly where you are supposed to be, doing exactly what God wants you to be doing. Don't question yourself.  If something needs to change in your life He will gently let you know...until then, just move forward in the confidence that this is His world. He has allowed everything that is here to be as it is,  including you.  You belong where you are right now.
  • Happiness- true happiness- is not dependent on the situations in your life by which you are surrounded.  Society may tell you that if something 'bad' happens to you, you must be sad or unhappy about it, but I have learned that it isn't necessarily so.  You have no control over what happens to you, so if you base your happiness on things outside of your grasp you can (and often will) easily lose it.  So, what then, is it based on?  I think it's based on two things.  First and foremost, your relationship with God.  Second, your relationship with yourself. Anything else can be lost, so take care where you base your happiness.
 It seems like I learn something new every day.  I hope that continues for the rest of my life.

Oh, and something else I've learned: I have a hard time posting on here without including some pictures of my sweet little wild child- so here you go...
