God says, "Enjoy!"

I ask, what about all the projects?

~it's not about me

~Making my home beautiful and tidy IS part of this year's plan

~Balance. How can I enjoy the process?

~God wants me to enjoy and chase after beauty...

I am thankful for:

~so many cute buds and blooms in my yard

~ the cutest chicks ever

~ thankful for physical strength with all these physically demanding chores

~ laughter 🙂

Letting go of CONTROL

when going to sleep at night

knowing I've done everything I can do

I long for space, peace, joy, serenity

I mistakenly think that perfection will bring peace. I will never be happy pursuing perfection because I can never achieve it.

Why do I keep pursuing a perfect home?

How and when can I stop?

I'm so ready to choose peace over perfection, How do I do this?

~tend to my Soul.

it's tired. it's hurting.

Look at Soul Therapy list and do.

It is my job to take care of myself and I haven't been doing a very good job of it

Where are my lovely thoughts?

Thankful Thoughts:

we have money for paint, chicks, fencing, glasses

Thank you Lord for a free chicken coop and free picket fencing

Thank you Lord for providing!

I haven't had peace in a LONG time. It is up to me to choose

Better, Wiser, Happier, Spirit filled with joy activities. When am I going to start?

Today!

Prayer changes things.

I wanted to enjoy what God has given and ate my lunch at the table and watched the blossoms trickle down like snow.

It's past noon - I'm in my pajamas. picked one of each BLOOM in my backyard.

Love, God
