leaves turning & turning over a new leaf

Haven't had much to say lately. Between fall kickoff at church, which means small groups starting and general busyness occurring, the art program at work starting, and packing boxes, I haven't had much time to stop and blog.

The weather has been an incredible lift from the heat, and I'm so excited for fall. It is by far my favorite time of year. My hubby and I met in the fall, and we both feel that it makes us come alive. The crisp air on my face is one of the best feelings in the world, especially after the hottest summer ever recorded.

I've been in a weird peaceful state the last couple of days. I go between extreme anxiety to extreme peacefulness depending on the day and what life throws at me. It is these roller coaster waves of emotion and thoughts that I have been on for a very long time. And I'm sick of it. It's something I am aware of and adamently trying to change. I don't want to live a life dictated by my emotions or fears; I want to live a life fully trusting in God's plan and in turn glorifying Him. When my mind becomes entangled with other thoughts, thoughts that are there only to destroy me, my faith starts to crumble. I want to be ready for battle, ready to take on whatever situation comes at me with courage and perseverance.  Here's to a fresh awakening, and a step of faith.

Have a beautiful weekend.
