Welcome Fellow Seekers –
I am on a journey.
It is a journey of discovery.
I want to discover how to recognize God’s gifts that are found during moments in my day. I want to slow down so that I see them, savor them, and be thankful for them. I want to store those gifts in my heart so that I can pull them out when I need them – to ponder, to admire, to recognize God’s hand.
But right now – I can’t.
Right now my house is over-flowing with clutter. I can’t enjoy the loveliness of my house and the special items I cherish because it is hidden by unimportant junk.
Right now my children are out of control (not really, but it feels like it). I can’t set up the routine that I know they crave because I can’t figure out what to do first.
Right now my body is neglected – I don’t eat right, I am overweight, I have joint pain – because I have not developed the self-control and personal strength to stop putting myself last.
Right now my schedule is overflowing with things that I am not even sure are important. Those things sure seemed important when I said yes. Yet I can’t find the time to spend a few minutes of alone time with God.
So I am setting out on a journey.
It is a personal journey, but I hope I have some company.
Journeys are much more fun when they are shared.
I am not sure exactly what path this journey is going to take, but I do know the destination – a serene home, which is built around the priorities of my relationship with God, respect for myself, and the nurturing of my family.
Over the next few days I am going to explore the route I am going to take. Please let me know what path you are on and what route you want to follow.
