I’m workin on it

So remember that time like a million years ago when I told you I was struggling to maintain my relationships?

Well, yesterday I decided to do some reflecting and praying in order to make some changes in this area.

My mom was gracious enough to entertain E all day. I went for a run in the morning which I hardly ever get to do. Score!

Then drove into town to surf with Matt and Zan! Being in the water has always been sort of therapeutic for me and  I felt especially awesome about the fact that Zan and I will soon be asked to star in Blue Crush 5 because of our sick skills. For reals, you weren’t there, you don’t know…After that I decided I walk on the beach by myself and pray.

I just kept thinking about this verse;
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5
No matter how low I feel, or dark and hopeless things may seem I will not be overwhelmed by it. There is still light in my life and I will hold on to that instead of feeling like there is nothing I can do about it.
Anyway, it helped me gain a some perspective and I felt like I was finally able to sort through some of the thoughts and feelings I have been having which was really amazing.

Later in the evening I got to sit  on the beach and watch the fireworks.  I also too the opportunity to write an important email. You know how I do, still taking care of biz:)

It was truly an amazing day! I feel like I have made peace with some things and that was my goal for the day.  I will of course, continue to work on my awesomeness or lack there of but one step at a time right?


Good Friday

Last night was our church’s Good Friday service at the beach.

It’s funny how distracted you can get by your everyday life. I feel like I’ve practically forgotten its Easter.
I have had to force myself to really focus on what this time of year means and it’s been good for me.

I am also trying to figure out how to teach E to have the right focus too. I don’t want him to just think of candy and bunnies, I want him to remember Jesus on Easter.

Anyway I am trying which is a good start. So last night we got home after a full day and the Wolf pack was beat.

I even caught these two snuggling:)
