Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Sometime Just Let It Go




This is what I wanted for my header for my blog this year.  I had a story behind each picture I picked, but as you can see, however I made the collage, it is too grainy to be used.

There are just times you have to sing the song....Let It Go, even if I don't know all the words, the mantra is so true about so much of life.

By the time I figure out how to make my header look like I want, the  year will be over.

Let it Go

Then I had planned to explain my header and pick a word and pick an accessory and maybe a color for 2015.

Let It Go!!!

I had also planned to enter 2015 more organized, house clean, holidays decorated and put away in a more timely fashion, (don't ask what just got put away).

Let It Go!!!

As I pulled everything together then I was going to blog.

After I figured out how we were going to pay bills this year..then I would blog.

You get the picture.

LET IT GO!!!

I also thought I would enter 2015 with my Rachel business..ie, Simply Your Decor, becoming my main source of income...once again...

LET IT GO!!!!!!

Just to throw this in for good measure...............I wanted to be a size 8, but instead I gained 20 pounds from September to December.

Expectations can side track us...de-rail us...disappoints us...and leaving us going no where.

Let It Go!

This year has already been a year full of unfulfilled expectations and lessons.

God has spoken quietly.  He has allowed me to struggle, like any good parent who knows if they help their child they will only stunt their growth, He has allowed it for my good.

In the midst of some cloudy days...both in the natural and spiritual, He has brought those days of sunshine.  An encouraging word from Benjamin...my son of encouragement, or a smile and laugh from a grandson, a call from a girlfriend, a sunset viewed from my bedroom window.

For now I am going to Let some things GO!!! and embrace spring.

Well you are singing the right song there! And if you've learned that song, you are in a good place in life to be able to let things go and not add unnecessary stress to your life. And isn't it true how God brings those things along in life to encourage us? Just little smiles from Him. I do like your header idea, it's so artistic. I wonder if you didn't just need to use the original photos at a higher resolution. But let it go!

I agree with Dotsie... And, I'm trying to sing the same song, Janette. He always gives us enough... blessings and hugs ~ tanna

Well I would be truly surprised if we couldn't ALL agree with this...I know I sure can. The Lord has allowed these last couple of weeks for my good, of that I am very certain, and yet....I am soo ready to just let it go and move on, lol.

Oh, but it's so hard so often to just "let it go." But, HE can certainly walk us through as we attempt to "let it go." Blessings to you my friend, sounds as though you have your wagon loaded. Hugs!

Sonja Goodson said...

It's a lot more natural to just NOT let it go sometimes, to sift, worry, and try to figure it all out. There is freedom in just opening that window and letting it go! God has a way of rearranging it all when we let it go, especially when we give the whole mess to him. Why is that so hard to do sometimes? We want to 'fix' things. This year may not have gotten off to a stellar start, but... it's SPRING... let it go and let's see what this next season brings. :)

Love you!

Vee said...

Oh, yes, I hear you. Somtimes our perfectionist selves decide to rear up. For me, this means inaction since I can't do it perfectly. So glad that you are embracing spring! God bless you mightily.

Farm Girl said...

This morning as I was walking, I thought, Spring is really here and on mornings like this, it is easy to worship God. I have been saying Let it Go so much this spring. I also have that thought, of will anyone really care? I think that is a good lesson to remember every single day. God is always good, all of the time.
Blessings to you.

Debbie Petras said...

I hear you loud and clear. I'm still wrestling with writing my one book. Start and stop and never enough time...

I've resigned myself to enjoying the moments. I see too many moms of children at school not paying attention to those moments as they are too busy texting and 'doing things'. I want to enjoy and savor this time.

And I've not been blogging as often as I hoped but eventually I will. I miss my blogging friends too much to stay away too long.

Love,
Debbie

I agree with Sonja. It really is easier sometimes to try and figure everything out. But, in the long run, it is always best to let it go and rest in the Lord.
I really hope you figure out how to make the collage your new header. I love it.
Hugs!

"Let it go."

Arguably one of the hardest lessons for me to learn in life. I hold on to stuff like a dog with a bone. But, as I grow older, I am finding less energy to try to deal with everything. Sometimes I "let it go" just because I've grown so weary in the process of trying to figure it all out and fix it.

I suppose that God probably looks at me and just sighs, "When will she ever learn? Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden..."

Thanks for the good reminder.

GOD BLESS!

Sigh, that's the same song I need to be singing, Let It Go and let God fix it! I am in the same boat with many of the things you mentioned and it is so hard not to feel overwhelmed and defeated. I have to keep reminding myself of the bigger picture - heaven. What will matter there? The kind word, the thoughtful gesture, not what dress size I am or how much money is in the bank, but it is sure hard at times to keep that perspective.
