So here's the thing. I am not a creature of habit. I am not one of those people that crave regularity, that need to do things the same everyday. As a matter of fact, I pretty much crave change. My life is in a constant state of change and yet it all seems to stay pretty much the same. I have lived with my share of the OCD flavor- and yes college roommates you know who you are-and I am deffinately their worst nightmare. It's funny because I find myself always trying to re-invent myself, not really change who I am, but make who I am better and more efficient. This weeks quest is to begin writing again. So I went out and bought a great journal and now here I am blogging again. I now realize, in my ripe old age of almost 30, that this is my therapy. Re-inventing and bettering myself is how I therapize and survive. So here is my new blog, Beautifully Made, it is my new outlook and my newest adventure. More about what's going on in this new bride, step-mom, mom of a Kindergartener, and soon to be re-mommed in roughly 3 months. This is the beginning of my new journey...
The latest and greatest things that have been coming out of my 5 year old's mouth are nothing short of daily reminders of God's hand and blessing in my life. Cohen says the darndest things! For example, everytime we drive down the road we pass Grandma Roxie's house. We used to honk at her so she would know we were driving by. Cohen the other day said, "Mom, honk to heaven, honk to heaven for Grandma Roxie to hear". You see, Grandma Roxie went to be with the Lord just a few months ago and Cohen has really had a hard time with it. But now that he is understanding more that she is in Heaven with Jesus, he insists we honk to Heaven so that she know we are thinking about her. Cohen is constantly teaching me what it really means to have faith like a child. When I look at how loving, how trusting and how much he is learning to love Jesus I have to stop and remind myself that this is what we are called to do. Jesus calls us to let down our barriers and have a child like faith, to drop what we are doing and come listen and follow him. In the busy life, in this busy day I am learning more about taking time to be with my Father. To have a Cohen like faith, to drop my guard and honk to heaven!
