Diary? Nothing that I wouldn't tell a client. Not everything that is written pertains to me or my life.
The things I see, hear...the people I talk to, all influence or impact my thoughts. Just saying!

The State of the Heart

An ungrateful heart will never be happy. Never be satisfied. Never Content.
Will always want more. Will always see a better option.

*

What a wonderful thing it is to be able to say that I am grateful. That I am content. There's truly nothing I need. I might want a lot of things, but I don't need them. 
And how wonderful it is to know what truly satisfies and fulfills. 
Jesus.
Everything else is just a gift, given to enjoy. 
It's sad when we forget. 
When I forget and want to put something or someone in His place. 
But he is gracious to remind. 
Nothing can stand in His place. Nothing can replace the joy that comes from Jesus.
What a wonderful thing it is to have that joy!

Wedding Moment

photo. Daniel Usenko 
I always wonder why someone chose an image. Why they liked a certain photo over another...My husband asks me that too...Why did you like this one?
I wonder where we get those preferences from? Why we like certain things over others...Why we are drawn to, why we choose, why we like or favor one thing over another?...
Knowing my own preferences, inclinations, and set of what appeals to me, I ask myself that too...

What Do I Focus On?

 Thoughts while driving to work.

I watched as the car in front of me slowly drifted closer and closer into the lane next to it.

(I see a lot of 'almost accidents' now that my commute to work is much longer and mostly through busy freeways and city streets. I enjoy it. People say I only say that now, but we'll see...)
It made me think how we can focus so hard on what someone else is doing, what someone else is watching, that we lose sight of what we are doing ourselves! 
While watching the drifter, thinking, "What in the world is that driver doing?" I could easily start drifting myself because I'm no longer paying attention to my own driving. It's happened before.

It happens like that in life. I start focusing, thinking, and it consumes me. I forget to look at myself and what I may look like now due to the fact that I'm taken over by this obsession. How I am acting and reacting, and what am I doing because I am so consumed.
Reminder to take a step back and look at myself. Perhaps I am now that which I was looking at.
