As we all move into 2014, I want to wish all of you the Merriest of Holidays ahead as well as a dazzling start to 2015. Take a moment in the midst of the holiday festivities to reflect on what the Lord has taught you this year & how He has stretched you in ways that reflect His character. And embrace the change. My request to all of you is for each of you to join me in practicing immense gratitude for the oceans of love that both surrounds & is within all of our hearts. Share that love!
Through all of the highs & lows that I have journeyed through this year, I have learned lessons that will take my life further into His love & grace. I have learned what 'grace through suffering' actually means. I have learned His goodness through the darkest of hours. And ultimately I have learned - looking back - that there was never a dark hour and only His light blinding all of us.
Pour into one another and share that precious love with those in your life. Surprise one another - do that one 'thing' that you are so afraid to do - dance it out - give without expectation - notice the beauty in the mundane - and love without abandon. And if you are holding onto any ounce of fear in your life, leave it behind you because fear does not come from the Lord. And frankly, fear is a such waste of your precious time. Leap - run - race - let go - just do it - jump into His vision. Why not jump first? He is going to catch you if you fall and direct you if you fly. A life committed to the Lord is dreamy, real, exciting, adoring and so incredibly purposeful.
I leave all of you with one of my favorite quotes which translates into all I really want this Christmas and every single day I take a breath!
All my love.
