I know I am due to you all a "Part 3" of my series and it is the works. In the mean time, this hectic life has caused me to slack in my writing so I just wanted to "check in".
I used to ask myself if dreaming pays off. I have spent a life time dreaming...always knowing I was supposed to be someplace different than where I was. Reaching for the stars. The man on the moon. That someone special with a special message.
Do you have those kind of dreams?
My momma used to tell me I was born special, to do great things. It was really difficult to believe when I went against everything I stood for and begin to live a life of guilt, shame, remorse, and regrets. Over the past month I have finally reached a destination...a milestone...where I can say I am living what I have always dreamed about.
I am getting paid to what I love! FINALLY...and I absolutely am at peace and comfortable. Until it gets uncomfortable.
There is a price to pay for following one's dreams. It is being willing to live without the luxuries and the amenities one becomes accustomed to living with when there is a steady paycheck hitting the bank. There comes a point, though, when the luxuries just don't do it...happy does things NOT one make. Following your destiny, your dreams, your vision and passion for life is happiness.
It took some life coaching sessions, and years of self discovery, to finally be willing to take the leap of faith. It was April 2011. Today, November 2013, I have finally made money doing what I set out to do. I have lost a lot along the way, but the satisfaction is real to know that what I know I know and it is information someone else can use. (I hope that makes sense).
Wanna see what I've been up?

Stick with you dream, you might have more than one, but there is usually a driving dream...the thing you want more than anything in the world...it is this dream to grab ahold of and not let go. The rest of the dreams are what I call supporting dreams. They are the dreams that help you get to where you are going.
So tell me...What's your dream?
Today is October 31st, or Halloween. Growing up in the Christian faith, this holiday has never been a huge holiday although we did dress up and we did go trick-or-treating. It is just my parents, or moreso, my mother, never let us dress us in something evil or scary. We never did any scary movies or horror houses. In fact, halloween was more of a "hallowed be thy name" festival.
As a kid I didn't understand why everyone was watching Friday the 13th while I was making smiley faces in the jack-o-latern's. Or why I got to dress up like a clown while my friends went as witches and goblins.
Today I have understanding! Hallowed be thy name!
Hallowed, honor as in holy, the name of Jesus. Be the light as Jesus is the light!
Trunk-or-treat is a wonderful thing churches put together for the community. Followers of Christ are in the world, and while we are in the world we are called to make a difference...to be the light. It is a fun, safe place to meet people in your neighborhood. Most have more than just candy, there are games and food as well.
My husband and I will be going to a trunk or treat tonight, in just over an hour. We look forward to seeing the costumes and will enjoy the fun games. Most of all, we will love knowing we are creating a "hallowed be they name" night.
What about you? Comment or post pictures of how you are celebrating "hallowed be thy name". I love hearing from you!
