Musings on the 4th

Happy 4th of July! Whether you're spending the day at the lake with family & friends (ahem, my family!)... or heading into work later (this girl!)... I hope you squeeze some fun and celebration into today!

I'm spending my morning being super lazy. I had plans to take a long bike ride, but I think today is a two-cup-of-coffee kind of day, staying in my PJ's as long as possible. I need a little quiet time to myself, too. I just downloaded a new John Eldredge devotional- hope it's a good one!

On top of being in a little summer funk the past few days, I'm also really searching my heart for forgiveness and trust.

I'm learning that not everyone in our lives knows how to take care of our hearts. They don't tread as lightly as they should. Words and actions can quickly be twisted and turned, and we're left feeling a little... trampled on.

Growing as a person, in a relationship, in a friendship, in a family, in a business partnership, requires- I'm learning- copious amounts of forgiveness and trust. Second chances, mature conversations, working through it- it's key, huh?

The hard part is determining when the hurt- outweighs everything else. When do you stop giving second chances?

See, I told you it was a two-cup-of-coffee kind of morning!

It's time for me to crack open that new devotional, have a little QT time, and reflect on this good, great life we've got here on Earth.

And, specifically, in the great US of A! :)

Happy 4th!
