It’s in the little things that joy abounds. I recently sat down with a friend. We had good food, good conversation and without her knowing it she humbled and convicted me. It was what I needed and it helped me to see that my view needed more joy.
What is your name? Does it give you a purpose, a value? We should know that the worth we have is in our ability to see ourselves as worthy. When we allow people to look down on us, our value is taken away from us. It’s like not being known by our name
Where is home? The comfort of coming home. The chance to be around good friends. Home is love and hope. Home is memories and dreams of what is to come. Home is really where your heart is.
Did this just happen? I feel like I was just bum rushed with birthdays and holidays. Not that there are a lot right now, it’s just big events: A sweet 16, a 14 year and 45 year old birthday. Two major holidays and baking galore. I wouldn’t change it!
