Advent began today, what a perfect day to start again, to prepare for tomorrow today without letting fear stop me. I'm not even sure where I'm going this year with my work or my life as the kids grow I'm needed just as much if not more, but I also find hours of down time that I'm needing to fill preferable with a job that brings us a little extra income.
Life has been rushing at me this last eighteen months, I feel like I've been just making it from one day to the next. We took a fabulous four days away from home and hiked into waterfalls along with many other fun activities. But this picture of the waterfall is my source of inspiration this advent. From the top it pours down, its overwhelming, its loud, that's how life has been, but if you walk to the bottom it is a calm cool pool of relaxing waters, and that's where I'm choosing to focus my attention this Advent. Stop and sit in the cool waters, take the time to pray to focus, to not let everything rushing down from the top hinder my time in finding God's will in my life. To move forward but calmly and with hope and peace in all my decisions. I pray the same for you this Advent.
