I am so happy we are finally in the month of December! This is my favorite time of year. It brings friends and family closer and puts so much back into perspective again. I am so thankful for all the blessings that have been given to me this year. Each passing day, I can look back with more and more gratitude and thanks.
Although this can be a hectic month, I am trying to keep my focus on what matters. Not material things or petty discourse. But on the little feet I hear pitter patter back and forth in our house. Its chaos around here, but it’s beautiful. I watch my little ones grow each day. I watch my husband relax about the small stuff and I see how I can more easily let things go. We learn. We grow. And suddenly the worlds a better place.
Today it rained. After it cleared, everything looked so much clearer. The colors popped. The flowers glistened. The air fresh again. I realized this was a metaphor to my life. When it rains, which it will, things will get messy. But our lives are soaking up all that hardship and madness for a good purpose. With each drop, we are becoming better. Stronger. Wiser. We are changing and growing. When it settles, which it will, there will be a newness about us. Something that couldn’t exist without all that rain. This year, my life has had it’s biggest rain fall of all. But wow. I wouldn’t change a thing. I am humbled that God would trust in me to take on all that he has given me. I am thankful that I was chosen to walk this path. I am speechless and unable to express the joy I feel in knowing such a savior. My life will never be the same. Dare I say, bring on the rain. If it means I will be better for it.
