Reflecting on 2018
If I have learned ANYTHING over the last 3 years of sincerely surrendering, and trying to improve every aspect of my life, it is this:
I could go on, and on, and on. But this is a [ S I M P L E ] blog.
Suffice it to say, the seeds I planted years ago are finally beginning to bloom. This might be a very different garden than I had originally imagined in my head, but have you ever known God to work in any other way? I am humble enough to admit I do not always know what is best … but I am glad someone/something else out there sure seems to.
I acted big and made big moves, and I expected the rewards to immediately reflect that. They didn’t. It was hard. I have felt embarrassed, immature, selfish, and naive…the list could go on and on. However, I can now step back and realize that some things just don’t happen overnight - in fact, they may never materialize at all - but that does not mean any of it was a mistake. They are all little, tiny, seemingly inconsequential steps that have led me to an even better place than I could have ever planned myself.
So as I sit in our cabin, after the loss of my father, the loss of myself as I knew myself for years, and a severe loss of perceived control, I cannot convey enough how much I have truly gained through losing it all.
Forward we go…slowly. ;)
[ s i m p l e ] moments worth noting:
A solid, warm, restful night of sleep.
Running water (yes, we had to drill a new well this week…in the mountains…in December…)
A new Sunday subscription to the Denver post.
Keep it simple,
