Half Past Now

     As we enter the new year, many of us are still running around dazed, confused, and anxious for the world to reveal its plans. We are constantly checking our watches, clocks, phones, etc in search of the time.
     So many of us forget to stop counting the moments so that we can  start making the moments count. Many of us have lost sight of our purpose. Every minute of every day is something to be cherished, not counted, like marbles in a jar. Smell the roses, read a book, plant a garden, visit a museum, write a book, start your business, finish a college course, hug your child, kiss your spouse, watch a movie, start a journal, read the bible, run a mile.
"I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I have just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well."  --Diane Ackerman The next time you feel the urge to check the time, tell yourself it is half past now! Half past time to bring glory to GOD by using the many talents and gifts that he has given you to use and enjoy.

Proverbs 21:5 The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.

Mediocrity is bread for the average. - Pastor Sarah Connor
     Lately, the actions of someone that I love have been tormeting me. Thus, my life slipped into cruise control. I have barely been eating. I barely put any effort into getting dressed (and those that know me know that once I get up, I dress up and I show up and show off). I barely clean up. I don't blog.
     My smile is still there, but behind it there is an overwhelming sadness. I have been doing the minimum as a measure of prevention. If I don't give my all at work, at home, at church, etc., then I can't get hurt if someone thinks it is not good enough.
     What I learned today is that I was created in HIS image and he is EXCELLENT so EVERYTHING I do should be done in EXCELLENCE even if it is not appreciated. Even if it is never enough. Even if it is not deserved. Even if it is not reciprocated. I was made excellent AND the one for me will acknowledge and appreciate that fact.

New Beginnings....

Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right...
~Phillips Brooks, "An Easter Carol"

Today is Easter/Resurrection Day. I hope that everyone spent it enjoying HIS grace and mercy. I was reminded that HE died so that we may live. And not just live, but live in abundance. We should seize every opportunity that HE sends our way. He did not die so that we could live in mediocrity. He did not rise so that we could continue to live our lives in the dark. Walk in the light...HIS light. This is a year of acceleration. So what that the year so far has brought nothing but darkness and despair. Today is a new day. A new beginning. Start where you are and take HIM with you and enjoy the many ways your life will prosper.
I was blessed with the opportunity to open for Mrs. Cece Winans with my DWOC choir, in front of at least 6000 people. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. I hope everyone was able to experience His grace today.
Until next blessed.
