There are different seasons in life...
There is a season you must learn to say NO. Draw boundaries. Keep from overspending yourself.
Then, there seems to be a season to learn to YES again.
Recently while I was climbing the stairs to the back deck, God reminded me of an old joke. You know, the one about the guy on the roof during a flood. He prayed for God to help him.
A boat passed by and he said, "No, I'm waiting on the Lord." A helicopter flew over, tried to get him and the man said, "No, I'm waiting on the Lord." He was washed away in the flooding waters.
In heaven, he asked God why He didn't help him. God replied, "I sent a boat and a helicopter, why didn't you get on either one?"
So, I understood it was time to say YES to some of the things God sent my way... Okay, a couple He may have sent more than once. I'm just sayin'.
I have been so blessed by the YES.
This gorgeous pumpkin arrangement was made by a wonderfully creative and amazing lady who I am getting to know better... along with a dozen others in one of my YES decisions.
I am inspired.
This season of Thanksgiving, I am thankful for the gifts of YES. If it is your season of YES, I hope you can open your arms and your heart to the potential today.
Could there possibly be a more handsome Little Man waiting to go to school earlier this week (yes, I know many of you have just as handsome Little Men!!)? How could we survive without texts and facetime? ;)
