Hey friends, how are you today? For those who live in the US, how was your thanksgiving? As for us, we had a wonderful time. Thankfully, although we have no other family near us, we’ve been blessed with the best church family. We spent the day with a few other like-minded friends, which ensured our time was filled with laughter and free encouragement. Times like these are always well spent.
Then later, the girls and I went to the mall (you knew that was coming) and of course, you noticed I said, ‘the girls and I’ because hubby won’t be caught dead at the mall in times like these; not even for me. That’s okay though, the girls were more than enough company. Do you brave the stores for Black Friday deals? Today though, I know we’re not brave enough to face the cold. It is a miserly 28° but feels like 19°. Not even the thought of shopping will encourage me to go outside in this cold.
We are literally four weeks away from a new year, can you believe it? 2020 is right around the corner. Have you began making plans and setting goals? While having my quiet time with the Lord, this morning, I took the time to reflect on the past, but look to the person I am becoming. I want to BE a woman of grace and virtue. I want to ‘open my mouth with wisdom and kindness’ (Proverbs31:26). I want to listen faster and speak less. I want to use my time wisely. I want to BE a woman who fears the Lord. I want to BE this woman who loves more and is less self-centered.
But I realize that in order to BE takes time. BEING is a process; it begins with BECOMING. In order to BE, I must be intentional. I must be dedicated to the goal of ‘BEING’, and because I know it takes time; I’ll start today. How about you? Will you join me on this journey?
