Serenity {Find Rest in the Lord}

Serenity….

That is what I’ve been trying to feel for about 2 to almost 3 months now since we decided we were moving to the Austin area.

Well we went to Georgetown last week and found a home!  Bought a home!  Going through all the closing process and now finishing up the packing in our Amarillo home.

It all feels like a whirlwind.  A very blessed whirlwind, with one hiccup:  our Amarillo home hasn’t sold!  It has been very frustrating for my hubby.  There has been homes in our area that have sold within weeks of being on the market.  He has had a hard time not letting go and trusting God’s hand in all of it.

But, yesterday as I was cleaning and getting ready for a showing that was cancelled I thought: what could be the root, the issue, what’s holding this house in limbo?  I have thought is was my hubby and all his type A personality and him having to work through trust issues and control issues with God.  Of course we all have these same issues just in varying ranges and degrees.

What I have realized through prayer and reflection is I could be the cause of our house having an energy or spirit of being held back.  Okay stay with me.  I know so many of us are able to rap our brains around the mind body soul spirit of a being.  But is there really a spirit or an energy of a thing?  I think it is the link to the being, us, that will create or attach energy thus good or bad spirit to an item or a thing or even a place.  So let me explain….

I have been and still am beyond excited about this move.  BUT being the introvert and highly sensitive person I am, this home has provided 10 plus years of security and SERENITY for me.  It has been where all my friends can come and gather and fellowship.  I am person who doesn’t like big crowds or gathers; but at my own home I LOVE IT!

Now my body and spirit are going to have to start over,  process new people and new places all at the same time.  Where as in my home I get to be me.  I will have that at my new home but it will take time just like making new friends will take time.  I also have to give up my security, my SERENITY, of people who know me and love me for all my amazing quirkiness.  I love being quirky, I love being me.  I need to remember that I can still be me even somewhere else.  Those in Georgetown will get to know me too and I will find my familiarity, my peace, my SERENITY there too!

So to my Amarillo home:  If I have held you back in anyway: I am so sorry.  If I have clung to you rather than God: I am sorry.  And if I have said or done anything to not allow good energy or spirit to flow from you when someone looks at you: I am sorry.  I’m going to miss you.  I will lean on my SERENITY OIL to support me in this process of saying goodbye and to thank you for holding so much love and laughter for over 10 years!

What do you need to find some calm, some SERENITY with?  Do you find yourself having emotional overload, agitation, restlessness, anxiety, or disconnected?   How can you find your peace, calm, tranquil and connected spirit in a situation?

Sit with this….pray about this…..journal about this….share and connect with me about it!

Many hugs and blessings dear followers….family…friends….

"S" Sounds on Sunday!

Celebrate…
Shoes…
Starchy veggies…
Cinnamon…
Silly…
Social…
Seven…

I know these all seem random and my thoughts as I proceed will all seem random as well.  Yet, I can’t help but see how it is all connected.  After all if I am living my life for Christ.  Thus, everything I do and experience will and should be touched or influenced by my walk with Christ.

I want to celebrate my faith saying thank you to my glorious Lord for everything He does for me!  I am beyond blessed to have a wonderful family.

I was thinking about shoes during mass the other day.  I know odd!  But as I become more and more of a minimalist with not only my life and stuff and attire, I have become more aware of how our shoes can impact our mobility.  Our shoes can nurture our alignment or hinder our health.  And if I want to be able to go, go, go for the Lord I MUST take care of my feet, thus my alignment.

I listened to a fabulous podcast last week as I enjoyed a fabulous long walk early in the morning.  The topic was about how even starchy veggies can still contribute to insulin surges…thus creating sugar cravings.  Thus needing to limit, or be cautious in how much we intake depending on our sensitivity with insulin as well as our nutritional, physical, and fitness goals!  Heck even our spiritual goals.  After all if I am “craving” anything but God I am putting too much focus on that craving that is not for God!

Cinnamon!  I love this amazing seasoning!  It is great in my tea in the morning.  A delightful sprinkle in warm coconut milk with cocoa powder and a touch of honey.   A fun twist with cayenne pepper on veggies or berries with coconut cream.  I sprinkle this amazing seasoning in and on just about everything: protein shakes, green shakes, salads, soups, drinks, cocoa/coconut oil bites, with almond butter and carrots!  It is warming, comforting, and helps control cravings….Ah I can envision God planting this beautiful spice in the garden of Eden just for me!

I have learned I must must must do something silly each day to make me smile! After all the more I laugh, smile, giggle through all of lifes trials the more I make God happy and the devil not so happy….not that makes me giddy with delight.

Socializing for me can be very exhausting sometimes but only because I am naturally in introvert.  But I know how important it is to socialize outside of my bubble because that is where I learn and experience some of the most amazing things and amazing people in my life.  It is how I am able to share what I learn with others.  It is how I am able to see God in action; through those around me.  Thus I’ve learned to make sure and respect the time that sandwiches around a larger gathering or event whether with friends or a function.  I try to take some down time before and after.

Seven days a week God gave to us to celebrate something new and different each day.  Therefore, I choose to reflect upon that seventh day of all the amazing experiences I had over the course of the last week and all I will encounter with great anticipation for the next.

What is your random seven words you want to think about, journal, reflect, and possibly share about today?! 🙂
Many blessings and prayers as always!
Live a gloriously silly day!
