It's not how you start, it's how you finish

7.19.2009

Life is something that goes by way to fast and there is no way to rewind or go in reverse--you just have to live. And God is teaching me each and everyday just how valuable life is and just how important it is to savor the moments and people that He has blessed me with. Today Pastor Livingston brought up more than once that it's not about how well you start the race or how well you run in the middle of it; it's about how you finish. God didn't place you here to do SOMETHING, all He asks is that you OBEY Him. Unfortunately, that can sometimes be the hardest thing in the world. My response to that:

Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. -- Proverbs 3:5-6

Every decision we make should be made on our knees. We can have no confidence in ourselves, but learn to rely on our Father and Him alone. I consider myself ridiculously blessed that Andrew and I are apart of such an amazing church.

On another aspect of life, Peyton Leigh Lail celebrated her first year of life this past Friday!

All in all, I believe little miss Peyton enjoyed her day and cake! Life is good...especially when there is cake involved!
