Reflections:Long-Term Thinking


When I became a mom, I got lots of advice on how to love my child. But not until a few years ago did someone actually point out that loving a child means wanting what’s best for them long-term. When my four daughters were young, long-term didn’t resonate with me. Back then it was about survival, meeting daily needs and keeping my head above water. 
Now that my kids are maturing, however, the fog is lifting. I’m no longer surviving, but rather I am a thriving parent. The perk of this stage is that my kids want to spend time with me. We have real conversations that reveal their beautiful personalities.

We all need to have faith.
Having faith in yourself is a combination of confidence in God and His infallibility, and faith to act on that confidence.

It requires humility to acknowledge your inability, and at the same time to acknowledge God's ability to do anything through you.

Reflections:You Need Rest To Do Your Best


Do not run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been, but also where you are going.
Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
