Life Bursting At The Seams

Water Drop

Yesterday was my birthday. Today is the first day of my new year. The excitement. The possibilities…are endless.

The old year is gone. Never to return. Each birthday is a sort of rebirth, isn’t it?  Try new things. Be creative. Get better. Smile more. Love more. Laugh out loud.

It’s a chance to learn more.  Although I love books, I’m not talking about word knowledge.

*There is a difference between wisdom and knowledge

*Sometimes taking a step back from a situation, is really moving forward

*Being a good speaker, is more than just knowing the words to say

*Being able to say “I’m sorry”…two of the most important words in the English language

*Understanding that life is not a dress rehearsal

*Remembering that there is no one like me

*Life isn’t an emergency

*Slow down, rushing around just makes me unnecessarily frazzled

*Love people

*Smile a lot

*Don’t be afraid to share my heart

*It is not necessary to say everything I’m thinking

*Really understanding, “This too shall pass”

*Believing that God knows and loves me–on a daily basis

*Sometimes life hurts, embrace this without letting it destroy me

*Jesus walks with me

*Life is short, no matter how long I live

*I need to live my life in light of eternity

*Serve with joy

Proverbs 4:6-7
Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. (NIV)

Psalm 107:43
Whoever is wise, let him heed these things and consider the great love of the LORD. (NIV)

  1. Wonderful post! I agree with all that you said. Life is too short to dwell on the petty things that come up in life! Hope you had a wonderful birthday. Blessings!

  2. Happy bleated Birthday. Praying this new year for you is full of all the things you named, and most of all, full of Christ, who is everything.

    Bless you!!

  3. Dawn, this is wonderful. Can I re-post this on my blog as a guest blog from you and give you credit for authorship, of course? I will also provide a link to your blog as well.
