I was on such a blogging kick! Now here we are, seven days later...
Oh well. We can't be perfect all of the time! :)
My dad spent last weekend in Tulsa, and we painted my office (pictures to come!) and of course did a TON of yard work.
I'm such a lucky girl to have such a handy dad. But I truly just enjoy one on one time with him, too! (Don't be jealous, mom!) So, great weekend.
And this week... has been busy! I've had meetings, long days at work. Stressful days at work. I played tennis for the first time Tuesday and my wrist hasn't felt the same since. (Don't worry, I'll be fine.)
So, that's just a quick snippet of my week! I have a lot to elaborate on- but I do want to say today that I'm reading a new John Eldredge devotional (my favorite these days) and it's all about the heart. Listening to our hearts, following our bliss and passion. Letting God speak to us through our heart.
If you've read my blog for any length of time (or know me in person) you know this kind of devotional is right up my alley. I love nothing more than matters of the heart.
And it's appropriate, too. As I kind of get settled in this next chapter of life, there are some growing pains. Some times a girl's heart just hurts. You know?
Life can be tricky, and tough. Relationships don't come easily. Managing a home and bills on your own doesn't come easily. Keeping up with a fast-paced career isn't a walk in the park.
Along the way, little things just ping at your heart. You wish it was all a little easier.
But the grass is always greener on the other side. No one has it "easy." But it's no excuse to lose heart!
While I was running this morning, I ticked off all of the things that make my heart so very joyful. And as it turns out- life is pretty great. My heart is full.
Have a great Thursday, everyone! And take heart; it will all be ok!
