Things are Good

I feel good.  Today I was walking around Paris looking at all the gray.  The buildings, the clothes, the ground, the sky.  With all the gray color surrounding me, I didn’t feel so gray.  I am feeling more like a bright yellow.   Even though it was only 57 degrees today, I am feeling yellow!  How amazing is that?!?

Justin and I have been talking a lot about our attitudes.  We have realized that we really haven’t been HERE in Paris for some time now.  Although we have physically been here, we haven’t been here emotionally.  More so me than him.  We have been lost somewhere in our thoughts of where God has us next or in what we are unhappy or stressed about. 

It was as though a light bulb went on and we realized WE LIVE IN PARIS, FRANCE!  We are here for a reason and God called us here for a reason and we get to live that calling out!  I feel so refreshed in remembering this!

I am really excited about this next "season" in life.  I am praying it is a season of loving and serving other people.  I am tired of feeling that the world revolves around me and my growth.  I pray that this will be a time of giving up myself and finding joy in that.  I pray that this "season" will be a time of gratitude and positivity.

I pray that my days will continue to be a bright yellow when what I see is gray.

    It seems that your new blog design reflects your “bright yellow” feeling :D… it’s beautiful! God has great plans for you and Justin. I Praise the Lord with you Jen! I love it when the “light bulb” turns on. Yes, the truth sets us free!
