I am here. But am I really?
I want to learn to be present in the moment, to be fully aware of my surroundings.
But It’s hard to be here sometimes, fully aware and fully accepting of my current season.
I’m surrounded by chaos, a messy house, a pile of bills and uncertainty in many areas.
Sometimes I’d rather run over there, or crawl under the covers and hide — to be anywhere but here. Surely, the grass is greener on the other side.
But then my heat is convicted. God has given me a good life. A life filled with people that I love, those who love me, good health, shelter, a hardworking husband, children who love the Lord, a precious grand son. I have so much to be grateful for.

How do I learn to let go of my wanderings and fully embrace where He’s placed me, right here, right now. This season has been so long and hard and here in this place I often feel anxious, my heart not quite resolved to accept the changes that have occurred — too many, all at once.
And then I remember that I’m not here alone. There is One who has come to bring comfort and joy in this season of hard, and He promised to give me life — abundant life, in the here and now.
