It certainly seems to me that 2012 has flown by at warp speed. It has been a year of incredible growth, changes and numerous blessings. And just when I thought it couldn’t get any more intense, it has…. I’m currently preparing myself to start the new year with an awesome mission trip abroad to South Africa!

As is my custom during the fall months, I spend several weeks reflecting upon the past year’s successes, challenges and lessons learned all in an attempted to revise, renew or set goals & disciplines to aim for in the upcoming year.

Going to South Africa is starting off the year in a really big way!

I’m excited to see the direction God is leading me while at the same time a tad bit pensive. Above all else I am determined to respond obediently to the call he is placing upon my heart with increasing faith and openness.

Spiritually I’ve endeavored to grow for nearly 18 years and its been amazingly. rewarding….that journey continues along with a host of health & wellness that have given way to major lifestyle changes.

Determined to finish 2012 stronger than I began….and happy to report that I’m “winning”!!

Today’s Epiphany: REALLY, Let It Go….

Posted in Affirmations, Blessings, Daily Living, Life Lessons on September 16, 2010 by Angela

I am always quick to advise myself or others to let it go in a range of situations.

Well, today was a supreme challenge for me to forcibly let go of something major.

It took a lot of back/forth and resulted in massive shedding of tears, however, the decision was reached.

Often, we may want to ultimately prove we can handle “stuff” that in reality is best trashed.

With much relief & resolve I loosen my grip, unclench the knuckles and

For The Love Of……. Timing

I am grateful for the ability (with the aid of prayer & meditation) to place things into perspective and know that all things are interwined and happen for a reason and in their own season. And while I may not always like the place where I am, I’m thankful to know that there is a bigger picture and a greater purpose to be fulfilled within my life. I am going through seasons, they have beginnings and they have endings.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

1 There is a time for everything,

and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,

a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,

a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,

a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,

a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,

a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,

a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,

a time for war and a time for peace.

For the Love of…….

Usually when you think of dawn you think of the time just before the rising of the sun. You can see where the sun will break the horizon as it begins its ascent.

This past week I unexpectedly encountered a different type of dawn.

She was an unknown stranger who spoke words of unsolicited support & encouragement that were tailor-made for me.

The brief moments in which we crossed paths, she said things to me that were so focused and in tune with what is/was presently going on with my life that it was shocking.

And in response to my taken aback look, she simply said, “You know how I know? I’ve been there.”

Keep in mind I hadn’t revealed anything aside from a joking demeanor of nervousness & cautiousness.

I am always humbled to experience one of these moments. Moments that I have come to refer to as a “COLOR PURLE” moment (the Celie & Sophie scene in the grocery store).

Dawn’s words really resonated with me, uplifted me and fortified my spirit to make it through the rest of my week. She was truly a blessing to me and for that I am immensely grateful and give abounding thanks!!!
