As we’re about to wind up into a busy season (and a full on blitz of crazy over the next few weeks with a J&M Lighting Workshop in Virginia, the Creative at Heart Conference, a wedding in Texas, right back into our next Walk Through a Wedding workshop in CT, followed right after that by our Walk Through One day in Nashville. Whew child!)…as we get ready for those busy days ahead, I am just trying my best to rest in the fact that the strength doesn’t have to come from me. The energy doesn’t all have to come from me. It doesn’t all have to happen by my hands alone. And that where God is in control we can walk and not grow weary, run and not grow faint! Because we’re going to need it…Amen!
Speaking of that, there are a few other things I’m trying to slow down these days & remember to be thankful for:
*A husband who wakes up every morning and makes us breakfast. And while we’re at it, lunch and dinner too, so that I can keep working on big projects we have going.
*A very fluffy golden retriever who lays at my feet and keeps my toes warm.
*Skype calls with our friends Liz & Ryan even though they are in an RV across the country right now! I’m SO grateful for true friends like them! In this industry, it can be really hard to tell who your real friends are when so many people seem out for themselves. It makes me extra grateful for friends like them who always have our backs!
*New tv shows to get into on Netflix. We just started The Killing and we are absolutely hooked! Anybody else watching this show? What about House of Cards?
*Our house and all of its quirky character and the endless list of things we still need to do to it. Every day it teaches me to be patient with myself and that progress is so much more beautiful than perfection.
*Books that feed my soul. I just started The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown and I am LOVING it!
*Frozen yogurt. The cake batter kind with graham cracker dust and mini cheesecake squares. Even in 30 degree weather. Amen and amen.
Happy Tuesday! M:)
