What If...You Just Breathe?

There is a beautiful song with these words...Just Breathe. I sing it as I write. Do you know the song I'm referring to? (I have a most difficult time placing songs with the singers.)

Well, that's what I am doing...just breathing. After a extremely busy summer, I have taken the liberty to...just breathe. Girls, I am bubbling over with excitement and a real sense of accomplishment. As one project after another comes to a close, (or rather a beginning) my plate is left empty. I've licked it clean and I am full.

Now, don't get me wrong. There were time when I had stomach cramps from eating too much. For putting into my body (*soul*) too much junk. I suppose the truth is that God would direct my steps and I would trail off the narrow path. Only for Him to redirect and me to begin wandering again. I am sure of this: If God didn't direct and redirect my path often, I would be off in la-la land.

But, today, I just want to celebrate. The hard work paid off. God blessed...again and again.

September marks the one year anniversary of the Pink Collar Club and as Charles Dickens says..."It was the best of times. It was the worst of times." How true that statement is. This past year has been chock full of blessings and chock full of challenges. But I am still the grace of God alone.

Will you celebrate with me? Remember...we are to rejoice with those rejoicing and mourn with those mourning. (I am blessed to have so many fellow mourners but the rejoicers...that's what I seek today!)

Rejoice, Sisters, rejoice!

For this is the day that the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!

Thank you to rejoicing sister in Christ. I pray the same for you, my friend. I really do.

Thanks for the encouragement!

Randee, let me add my Hallelujah Sister too! I'm so thrilled with the Pink Collar Club, knowing you, and the beautiful coaching lessons, as well as all that you offer in your Christian Lifestyle Community. What a wonderful path God is leading you on, my friend. You are blessing so many of us.

I am rejoicing with you as well Randee. Oh how I had hoped to make it on your phone call tonight to celebrate with you but today was a very hectic day with me being out of town this weekend and today being our first day of school.

Things are really coming together for you and it sure is nice when you are able to breathe isn't it! I need to remind myself to breathe as I have already felt anxious with how this year is going to go home schooling.
