yesterday ryan and i had a great day....we hung out with the girls, went swimming in the pool with them, while ryan put up our rock border in the back yard....i was able to lay out in the yard while they played very well together. brighten was napping. amazing! this is probably the first time in all their lives that i just relaxed, inside as well.
i let them be.
it was freeing! ryan has been encouraging me to have this mindset every day.
this is it!
this is what we are going for!
love is a huge goal of mine lately, i've been reminded of the love passage in 1 corinthians 13:
4Love K)">is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not M)">arrogant,
5does not act unbecomingly; it N)">does not seek its own, is not provoked, O)">does not take into account a wrong suffered,
6does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but Q)">rejoices with the truth;
7R)">bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
a new perspective i had is: don't ponder how to be these things, just know Who is and live in that!
