life is too short to be so busy that we miss the moments. In anticipation of our daughter's departure to college I accepted a few new responsibilities this school year and volunteered for a thing or two. Now, in the middle of October, I realize instead of being busy, I NEED TO BE!
"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:2 ESV
Instead of filling my time so I don't feel the pains of my passing over a year ago or our daughter's graduation and transition to college, I've got busy. I'm guilty.
I'm thankful for this realization. I could dwell on "how long" it's taken me to not only recognize this but to also do something about it. I have a renewed Peace within me. I have a renewed outlook and drive to move forward in faith to "be" the best Lisa I can be. I will continue to strive to be the best wife, mom, daughter, sister, niece, educator, author, and speaker I can be BUT only by allowing myself to "be Lisa" too.
I, you, can't be the best all around person God designed us to be if we aren't taking time to be this person - a time of reflection, renewal, and regeneration.
do you take time to just be?
