Balance

Balance has been a word on my heart lately.  Maybe because lately I have felt lack of balance.  I have felt some days like I am on a wheel that doesn’t stop.   I have had a hard time managing things some days and wondering how to do it better.  Some of it is coming together and getting better, but I am a work in progress.  Today I realized aren’t we all a work in progress and learning as we go.  Some days will be better than others and some will be flops in our eyes.  But God gives us a new day to shake it off and try again.  I believe part of balance is spending time with Him.  Hearing His whispers to my heart.  I have to admit that I have not made the time for God lately and today He reminded me that is where I find balance when things are running at a high speed.  I need to slow down, breathe, and take a moment and most of all spend time with Him daily.  My soul needs that and I am thankful that tomorrow is a new day and I can start fresh.  Balance is all how we look at things and live in the moments God gives us each day.  So I am starting fresh tomorrow and shaking off today.

Blessings,

Coming Up For Air

Well I have managed to not write in a bit.  I have been kneed deep in getting my classroom ready for a new school year.  I begin this week with a new set of butterflies.  This is the time of year when my focus is on one thing and that is getting myself geared up to fuel my passion for teaching.  I do have a few more stories from my time on vacation to share later.  But for now I am just coming up for a breath of fresh air.  Life is meant to fill us with fresh air and passion.  I am grateful for a summer that brought me times to reflect and refresh.  While it seemed to fly by, I have no regrets.  I lived in the moments.  Life is about living in the moments God has given us.  I don’t want regrets.  I am at a point in my life where I am reminded that life’s moments can have passion and purpose.  Of course I am not sure why it took so long for me to figure that out.  So my friends live in the moments with passion and breaths of fresh air.  Enjoy it!  It is worth it.  I  hope to not be gone so long now that I am ready for school and back into a routine.  Have some tea, take a breath, and just be.

Blessings,

Tammy

 

 

 

Dreams

Dreams!  We all have them and wonder if they will ever come true.  This year I turned 50 and I am celebrating 25 wonderful years of marriage to my Mr. Darcy.  Can you tell what is my favorite book?  Oh I digress!!! My dream is to go to a quiet beach and sit and take it in.  Watch my footprints disappear as the water washes ashore.   I have always been amazed at how God brings the ocean to the shore and how big it is….like Him.  I wonder if I stand on the beach will I be small.  Next to the ocean I imagine that would be true.  But in God’s eyes I am not small.  I like to think the ocean reminds us that there is nothing God can’t handle.  He is a big God and while I am small and life can overtake me, He will swoop me into His arms so I am not swallowed by the chaos of the world.  When I think of the ocean, I think of how God is right there and I can hear His whispers.  There is just Him and me.  Nothing to get in the way.  Nothing to drown out His voice.  That is what I want.  A sacred place to just be even for a few minutes.  I hope this summer my dream of meeting God at the beach comes true.  Life is an adventure and I am sure no matter where I meet God I will not be small, but valued and cherished and most of all…loved.

Blessings on your day,

Tammy
