2019

What comes to mind when you see that year?


Coming out of 2018 brings to mind many things in each of our lives.  Of course getting our first grand baby was a the most incredible thing for us this year…well for any year actually!

I also published my first book.  It felt like a very long pregnancy (25 years) and a “labor of love.”

But we have also dealt with family health issues, personal health issues, crisis times and other things like many of you.

It is life. Some years are indeed better than others. I hate to burst any bubbles out there, but it is guaranteed that in this world we will have troubles…..(John 16:3)  But we know Christ brings us peace, we can take heart, for He has overcome.

My husband said something this morning that sounds so simple.  Yet, if we really take it apart it is really pretty profound.

Natural.

Let it all be natural.

Don’t try to make things happen. Quit working so hard. Just be. Rest in Christ’s peace, grace and love.  Let it flow.  

I have used the illustration before about a glass of soda.  If you pour into it, the fizz overflows over the top of the glass and onto the table. And there is still soda left in the glass!

  If we allow Jesus to “fill us up,” He will overflow onto all those around us and still be in the glass to take care of us.

Naturally.

Happy 2019!

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 58 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 42 years, married 38 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in August!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
