LIVING FROM THE INSIDE OUT

For all of my life I've always focused on excellence and high achievement. My obsession with goals, objectives, benchmarks and outcomes guaranteed leadership positions at a young age. The goals grew larger as did the expectations of my supervisors. Everything was intense and the demands of marriage and parenting also required me to achieve outstanding outcomes. The honor roll child, top fund raiser, PTO meetings, field trips, and parent groups. Then came my commitment to church and community. My life became this huge cycle of meetings, responsibilities, commitments and accomplishments that never ended. My brain became a tickler tracking dates and appointments. I thought I loved the packed calendar and constant smart phone thumb typing. In reality I could not imagine my life any other way. Until I got off of the merry-go-round I was oblivious to the maddening pace I called my life. Today I get exhausted just thinking about how much of life I was not living. Today I love my life because I feel my life. I love my life because I am living my life. I love my life because I am living it from the inside out. The external bells and whistles that determined my every move have been silenced. Life is amazing!

I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE

It is so easy to get lost inside of our minds and believe things about ourselves that are untrue. Sometimes we have to step back and consult with the ultimate authority regarding our importance and significance to the Creator of the Universe.  Psalm 139:1-18 O  Lord , you have examined my heart   and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up.You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it,  Lord . You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,   too great for me to understand!   I can never escape from your Spirit. I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning   if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength w

I AM AFFIRMATIONS

Life is beautiful! However life can also be difficult and hard. It is so easy to allow tragedies, disappointments and setbacks to get in our way. Thereby sullying God's sacred posture in our human experience. When Moses had an encounter with God and questioned how he was to identify or describe God to the children of Israel. God replied to Moses: "I Am Who I Am. Say this to the people of Israel: I Am has sent me to you." Mirror work has been used for eons to bring people into alignment with their purpose, destiny, and calling. Instead of reciting traditional positive affirmations let's use scripture for backup. Stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself •I am God’s child for I am born again of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God which lives and abides forever 1 Pet. 1:23 •I am forgiven all my sins and washed in the blood Eph. 1:7 •I am a new creature II Cor. 5:17 •I am the temple of the Holy Spirit I Cor. 6:19 •I am delivered from the power

THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND

Today is my sister's birthday. She indeed is my best friend. We have so many memories and regularly share laughs. She is and has always been a blessing to our family. Her love has no boundaries. She is a peaceful and calm person. She loves black and white movies, musicals, broadway plays, baking and working in her art studio. The Golden Girls was one of my favorite TV sitcoms. Actually the theme song drew me to the show. "Thank you for being a friend Traveled down the road and back again Your heart is true you're a pal and a confidant. And if you threw a party Invited everyone you knew You would see the biggest gift would be from me And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend." Happy Birthday Sis! source: http://www.lyricsondemand.com/tvthemes/goldengirlslyrics.html
