If you had to chose a word....just one, to set a tone for the year, a hope, a wish, a breath of expectation...I have tossed them around in the past, but this year, I'm claiming it.
Under the pressure and stress of the past year, it is something that I have craved so much but thought it impossible. However, I feel it....this weight being lifted. I want to live in my identity, that of being free in Christ.
I want to feel free to play, hold them longer and just be with my children without feeling like I really have to get up and get the next thing ready, as there will not be time later.
I want to feel free to linger in the Word and books to help my soul grow. EACH DAY.
I want to feel that I can spend time in creation, especially with my creator.
I want to be free to visit my daughter at school, to eat lunch with her, to encourage her teacher, to help out in ways if possible.
I want to be free to have margin...so I can lend a helping hand to someone that needs it.
I want want to be free to use my creativity, something that I feel is rarely used but struggling to get out.
I want to free my husband up from all the stress of work and his responsibilities, supporting him with my strengths so that he can flourish in his.
I want my free time so that I can learn more about true nutrition and figure out a plan in how to implement it in my home.
I want to be free to teach others about the gifts of the earth in essential oils, as it has been such a blessing in our own home.
I want to be free to be more me, to find her again.
Yes, this is true....but mostly in all these things I want to be free to let His light shine in all these areas. Bring on the FREEDOM!
