A few days ago I posted this quote on Facebook that I read from a devotional.
Why this quote? Because it hit me like a ton of bricks, happy bricks that is. I saw this and thought WOW, just WOW! If I sit here and look at all the things we WENT for this past year, all the things we TRIED, all the things we RISKED, then I all I have let to do is PRAISE.
Sure we had some minor set backs with injuries, health, and finances, but through each experience (both good and bad) we learned to hold tight to what we is good. We learned to expand our FAITH. We learned to TRUST. That my friends is victory in itself.
Praise. Joy. Victory. All of what I feeling now because sometimes when you are broken (physically and or mentally), God can put you back together even stronger.
Trials. Risks. Trust. All three are part of a plan. A plan to Dream Big. To breed more Passion. Healthy Bites and Hard Yards. Hard Yards is my husband’s new coaching/training program and half the reason we went to New Zealand. So he could get his Tri New Zealand Coaching certification.
Others. Yes others. Without the encouragement, the support, and the love of others, there is no JOY, VICTORY, or PRAISE. We are meant to SHARE in LIFE together, to lean on each other, to sharpen each other, laugh with each other, to just be there for each other. It’s our humanness. It’s REAL life.
Let’s not let it slip by this year. Let’s not focus on the doing. Let’s focus on what we are becoming, because dang….. it’s just too good not to PRAISE.
What’s your focus this Holiday/Christmas season?
Don’t forget that the Virtual Race For Recovery is this Saturday.
Stay tuned this weekend for the December Healthy Bite flavor of the month announcement.
