A Time To Twirl!
What began as a restful, quiet, but let's pack it all in - "Haas Girls Getaway", ended with so much more!
As I was sitting on the shoreline, watching my girl twirl fearlessly in the Atlantic sand, my heart was mesmerized! She danced, she jumped, she twirled, she laughed, she chased, she smiled. I watched her from a new view. A view that displayed her courageous spirit. Regardless of what was around her, she came to play! Regardless of the chilled temperature of the Atlantic shore - she came to twirl in the sand and soak her toes in the fresh waves! Regardless of what others were doing or not doing around her - she came to laugh and BE her!
It got me thinking ...
I admire her courage. I admire her strength. I admire her faith. I admire her laughs. I admire her twirl!
How often have I limited or discredited a moment? Moment's bring memorials or regret. Moment's lead to days, then years. Moment's define us. I knew in that moment, that I could not let it pass me by. Moment's with my husband and children are some of the most intimate times that God will use to help bring a new definition or gentle reminder into my life. It could be a new perspective, an attitude that needs to be shifted or a defined place to trust God with complete courage to what He has created me to be and to do.
The last 48 hours helped rediscover something in me. I left with a renewed passion to be me - more of what God has asked of me. I will laugh hysterically - frequently and more purposefully. I will twirl without fear - making room for more celebrations & inviting others to enjoy the dance with me. I will step in to this season with all that I am, with everything that God has purposed - regardless of what I see, hear of feel ... or how cold/frigid the temps might be or the scare of jelly fish nearby!
In Ecclesiastes 3, it says, there is a time and season for everything! This is the Haas' time to dance!
If you see me twirling nearby - be sure to come and join me!
Twirl for a moment!
