My new motto
Leap and the net will appear.
That is my new motto for 2009. I am not a big New Year's Resolution person. I don't like making them. They stress me out. I feel like they have to have meaning and be these huge things. I would rather set realistic goals for myself and work on them little by little. I am a baby step person in the biggest sense of the word. :)
But I heard this sentence today and it just struck me as this is my motto for 2009. I am sure many a person has used this before. I have heard it before but for some reason it struck me today in a different way. I guess in retrospect I guess I really used it in 2008. Our move and all we went through with that was truly a leap of faith.
I will never forget writing an email to our realtor and saying that I had faith our house would sell at the right time, we would go on our house hunting trip and then when we got back we would make some decisions on lowering price, etc. We were moving regardless of if the house sold so this was a very tough thing for me to just leave in His hands. But I knew I had to. The day we came back from our trip the people who eventually bought our house came to look at it. The funniest part of it is that we had requested they not come. We had been flying half the day, the boys had just gotten in their jammies and the house had luggage everywhere. It was crazy. They came anyway. I was never so thankful for a realtor being stubborn! It was all meant to be.
I have always been a person with a strong faith. But each passing year teaches me more and more about trusting in Him and getting out of the way. This last year has probably taught me the most about that. So for 2009 my motto is "Leap and the net will appear."
Happy New Year to you all and may you have a wonderful year!
