[my life, my blessings, my journey]

grace

The idea of "grace" has been settled among rooms of my heart these last few weeks. What does it mean to have grace? To give grace - to myself and others? How difficult is it to grant myself grace when I need it most?

I'm giving myself space to just be. Whatever that is. If I don't want to take photos for 3 weeks, so be it. It's not that big of a deal. If I spend 2 hours in the afternoon laying on the couch, listening for His sweet whispers and discerning his voice, so be it. The dishes and laundry will wait. They will always wait. I'm at a point in my life when I just really want to stop comparing myself to others and just be who I was created to be.

The only "photographer" I should compare myself to is the one I used to be.

The only friend I should compare myself to is the one I used to be.

The only mother, wife, daughter I should compare myself to is the one I used to be.

And it's enough. I'm enough. YOU are enough.

Why is comparison such a difficult rut to get out of?... I think it's great that you are taking time to just be and seek-out that grace. I'm slowly learning to be ok with taking photos and blogging as much or as little as I want to. I don't need to "keep-up" with all the others I admire.
Take the time, friend. Listen for His whispers. And let those whispers fill those rooms of your heart.
xoxo.
