This isn’t just college, he’s really going, going on his own.

One of the reasons I started this blog was at the advice of my son and husband due to the upcoming wedding of my son. Well I am on the countdown and it’s only 15 days away. I am now feeling the pressure which is a little different since I haven’t been that involved.
Well, let’s just say that has been hard since I spent 7 years as a wedding an event planner. Now, I agree that was from 1995 to 2002 and well, that makes me sound like an outdated wedding and event planner, but let’s just say… a wedding is a wedding.

“Feel” was not on the To Do list, but it made it’s way, thankfully!

48 hours ago I found myself starting this weekend with “no plan”.  I had a LONG “To do list”, but no plan. I knew what needed to be accomplished. I knew what my “stressors” were and what I should have accomplished in order to help ease my mind. I also knew what I really “wanted” to do. I do live a life of several personalities. Just as much as I love to be inside cleaning and “blessing my home”,  I also desire to be “learning” and planning  to Live Intentional and work on my future.  But, with that, I long to be out socializing with my friends as I see their pictures pop up on Facebook. I just know that for now, ” I need to live like no one else, so I can live like no else” in the future!

There is a sidepexels-photo-273132 of me that does love to be outside! Yes this a shocker to some. Wally has always been in charge of the outside of the house, but I do LOVE to Bless my home outside, in my own way. I tend to allow that to be the last place to be, I only have the weekend hours to take care of the Morrison’s so I end up spending more weekends working and doing and being side.

However, as the weekend progressed, I spontaneously got out of the house Saturday and decided to try 2 places to find my MOG dress. (oh for those not following, Mother of the Groom ALMOST purchased one but I really struggled with the price, and the fact that I would need to purchase my first pair of Spanks, and trust me, there was no forgiveness in this material, so it would have run from my ankles to my boobs! So, I snapped out of that, and walked out!

We all have stories…and chapters…of imperfection.

I feel privileged that I came across this post from a friend of mine today.  There are so many of us that are just open books and share everything, and for those that are more private sometimes us “sharers” can’t understand how they can do that, how do you not go crazy keeping it all in. However, there are definitely times in my life where, frankly, I am glad that I don’t have to share, if I don’t want to. Some of life’s issues are between Me, and God. This is a great reminder of that, after all, GOD is the one that we can turn to for strength!

 

Some things are meant to go through with as few people knowing as possible, it’s what show true character in yourself and those around you…

Thursday morning and ready for a new day. 😀Spending time in His word before the day starts and I am reminded…we all have stories and chapters in our life that we do not share, nor do we have to. Some things are meant to go through with as few people knowing as possible, it’s what show true character in yourself and those around you. With Him I can do it all and that is a great comfort….it’s only Him that has the perfection to be what I need! – Christina

I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me. Phil 4:13

So – Here is to a NEW day for you of trying, restarting, or beginning, and most importantly, remembering YOU ARE IMPERFECT and that is ok!
