Greetings and Joy in Abundance!

Ever wonder why some people seem to be floating through life and others stumble?

I wonder this, and seek to find ways to float instead of stumble. Maybe you would like to join me in this search.

Seeking a closer relationship with God seems to allow my life to float along a little easier.

Phillipians 4:5-6 tells us to reveal our gentleness outwardly, that God is near and that we should not be anxious about anything, but through prayer and petition, we should thankfully approach the Lord with our concerns.

As a high energy person, my anxiety can run high. I am constantly seeking ways to leave my concerns at the foot of the cross.

Random? Probably not.

Moment by Moment

I am encouraged.  This is a powerful statement, but it is so true.  I must tell you that I am so encouraged by the love of people who surround me.  I am encouraged by the receptive nature of people.  I am encouraged. 

Today, it is very hot outside.  The asphalt is steamy and the humidity is high.  It is the kind of day that you just want to crawl into an air conditioned space and remain there.  When you get into your car to attempt to go to the next appointment, you can barely catch your breath because the air inside your vehicle is so hot.  It takes several minutes for the air to stop heating the inside of your nostrils on these types of days.

I am encouraged, though.  The cooler days are coming.  I know this because of the nature of our world.  God gave us seasons in our world and seasons in our lives.  This is a season of encouragement for me.  I am grateful for the opportunity to share some of my thoughts with you and with those who fall into my path in a restaurant or in a grocery store or at the nail salon...wherever I go, I can't escape who I am.

Each day, every moment, I look for a reason to be thankful.  Each day, each moment, I try so hard to be a person who I would like to be around.  Each day, each moment, I remember the words of my parents as they taught me that life is precious and every moment is important.  Where you spend your time and how you spend it is a reflection of how you think and who you are. 

This is a hard reality, but each moment matters.  I am grateful for the encouraging moments I stumbled upon today.  The employees who had a few moments to ask me questions, the radio time to talk about responsibility and delegation of duties, the moments spent in grateful honest counsel with dear friends.  Later, the expression of joy and lyrical representation of self and fun as we dance this evening.  I cherish the moments in my life.  I also cherish my moments I spend with each of you.  Thank you for the gift of time and interest.  God bless you!
