Greetings from the Front Porch.
What if today? What if today I was intentional about the moment? What if I focused all my thoughts and energy on what I was doing, seeing, saying and feeling as I allowed my faith to guide and direct me?
I believe I would worry less and celebrate more. I would see the blessing right in front of my face instead of trying to fix and plan for my future.
What if I allowed for time of planning and preparing and when I finished let it be? Sometime I can be caught up in the organizing the plans of tomorrow that I miss out on the blessings of today.
What if has so many possibilities. I believe as I live in the land of in between, between yesterday and tomorrow, I would benefit from inviting what if into the start of my day.
What if I focused solely on what needs to be done today, trusting that tomorrow will take care of itself. Ancient scripture tells me it will.
What if I remembered in the moment that I had chosen not to compare, compete, criticize, complain, gossip or boast.
What if I remember that slow, simple, small moments are what makes for an abundant life.
What if I choose for today to trust my intuition, check my intentions and train my internal editor.
What if today I reminded myself that I am brave, bold and beautiful and I can do all things through Christ who give me strength.
I will tell you what would happen if I started my day in the what ifs. I would live from a place of gratitude and giving instead of asking and complaining.
Bring on the what ifs, I am ready to begin my day.
