Breathe. And smile. I am not starting with a blank page, but this year is going to be beautiful. It is going to beautiful because I have chose to make it so. And the first step comes with honor. Plain and simple. I need to honor where I am.
We forget to do that. So often we compare our lives to others or to what we dream or to what we think our lives should be. But reality deflates our ideals and leaves us frustrated and depressed.
So, as 2016 dawned I began my Beautiful Day Project. Today is going to beautiful and I will put no fear or worry into tomorrow. Today my girls are still wearing their pajamas, but I have played with and cuddled them. Today my husband and I had a lot of things to bring to God, but we can pray together. Today 30 seconds of planking hurt--but I did exercise.
Of course it is beautiful. God gave me this day.
2016 is going to be full of 365 amazing beautiful days.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
