Revelations

Well, we were off! All snuggled in tight clothes to make us feel not so anxious on the car ride down south. I’m speaking on Gidgets behalf.

Where I stayed on retreat. Nice no?

The retreat was just what I needed. There was a lot of talk about our identity in Christ. We (including myself) put so much value on what we identify ourselves with. I got to thinking, I do all these things, singing, guitar, wife, esthetician, cosmetologist, crocheting, healthy living/cooking, baker and more, yet it’s silly of me to identify myself with these things. Those things aren’t my identity. Christ is! what a relief! That’s it. My identity is Christ and I’m so grateful I don’t have to make my identity in these earthly things. Their just hobbies, but not me, not my identity.

I also felt the Lord was telling me to slow down. I have a constant nack for always being on the go and doing a million things at once because deep down if I’m not completely busy I feel as though I’m just wasting my life. In reality It’s just down right selfish. Selfish because my own insecurity of idle time means I’m doing a bazillion things at once and that = my loved ones only getting a sliver of the pie! I’m refocusing my priorities and I can tell already I’m way more peaceful! Amen amen!

Anyone else had any recent revelations?

Much love to you all!
