Typically I would post a “Summer 2017” blog today.
July 1, 2017 was the best day of my life due to the fact Raleigh Lauren was brought into this world on this day.
End of summer post. I didn’t go many places or do many fun things, but I did have the best summer of my life (after July because June was not very fun let me tell you).
Anyways, I wanted to elaborate on my devotions lately. I’ve been seriously convicted about my priorities recently. I’m selfish with my time and with our money. I really want to begin to give and help out others. See, I kind of hate people. This makes it hard. I don’t particularly enjoy getting close to new people, I like my tribe small. That is not our calling apparently. Another thing I’ve constantly struggled with is contentment. I always hated contentment. I thought if you were content, you will never thrive. Truth is, you cannot thrive until you are content. Until you come to a place where clothes, your old post partum body, your hair and house don’t matter, and all that matters is Jesus’s love and our love for others. That is what we need to thrive off of, not the high of success. I’ve been trying to figure out my purpose. I always figured purpose and career were intermingled. I came across a line that read “it’s not about what we produce, but rather who we become”. That hit home. It doesn’t matter that I’m currently just a stay at home mom (something I swore I’d never do) and that I’m not producing an income. I’m becoming who I was intended to be. Philippians 4:12 says “…. every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry…” be content, but never stop the journey. Dear Morgan, Life is about people, not an income. It’s about growth, not accomplishment. Getting older is funny, you never stop learning. Thanks for letting me ramble and get a little personal today. Enjoy the journey.
