"Your mind is somewhat like a seesaw.
As your trust in God goes up, fear and worry automatically go down."
Oh how true is that quote! I read it this morning in my devotional and it hit home. So much of our life (meaning me and the hubs) is up and down. We’re up one minute and down the next. We’ve soared high and sunk low. And you know what, it comes with the territory.
We slide onto the seesaw of life not knowing what’s going to happen next or where our passions/dreams will take us. We know there’s only 2 motions, up and down. We’re bound to stay on if we hold on tight, but to what? We hold on to each other, to God, to Faith, to HOPE! And with that, the seesaw seems to float up no matter what comes our way.
Life certainly has jolted us these days, but we cannot let that weigh us down. No, we will no let those fears or worries become heavy. Down they GO!!
A night out with our favorite people lifted us up! We stayed at dinner for hours sipping, savoring, talking, and laughing.The only thing weighing us down after this night was our dessert. Hehe, and that’s probably a good thing!
The car ride home we were at ease…..feeling UPLIFTED.
How do you stay UP on life?
p.s.The blog will be moving to a self hosted site later this week. Lots of messing around with it this week but we’ll get there. I may not be able to post as often, but that only means more time reading…..yea! thanks for hangin’ around with me!
