I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo. Don't be afraid to leave a comment if you're new! Today's word prompt is Present
I'm starting this post with a quote that I just love! In today's day and age everyone seems to be half way there. In our attempt to be connected, but are often tuned out. Pssst! It's okay to disconnect for a while. Don't be afraid to be fully where you are. Who knows...you might see a opportunity that you might have otherwise missed. *end of rant*
"Wherever you are, be all there." -Jim Elliot
Last week was great. I had the love of my life right next to me. Laptops were turned off, and we enjoyed being together. It was nice to be all there. Instead of constantly wondering what Kev was up to. I was fully present and cherished each moment. Saying goodbye was the hardest things I've ever had to do.
We're back in two different states now, struggling as we figure out how we ever lived apart. It's hard not having him right next to me. We were shown a glimpse of the future, and now we have to be patient. I was just reading screenies from a couple years ago. It's funny how some things never change.
We need to be fully present where the Lord has us, even if that isn't with each other. It is a test of faith for sure!
