peace blanket

I'm learning:
:: growth is hard. really hard. but growth is necessary.

:: to have faith in the face of hard decisions.

:: that who I am is more important than what I do.

:: life is not about competing or measuring up.

:: I have a purpose.
the last two weeks have been among the hardest of my adult life. I've had to make really hard decisions, too hard to describe in enough words for you to fully understand. but these few statements give you a glimpse into what I've been learning. know how you know a good decision? peace covers you like a blanket.

Oh Kristyn. I'm sure that whatever decisions you have to make, you will make with care. I always tell my kids to think about doing the right thing because in the end you have to live with the results. I think by doing the right thing (not necessarily the easy or convenient thing), you will have that peace of mind. Best wishes sweetie.

Praying for you, Kristyn. What would we do without the Lord? Nice to know the "expert" is in charge!

Kristyn, I know any decisions you make will be made with the purest/best intentions. You're a bright ray of sunshine and a source of kind concern and encouragement for many of us, and I hope you feel the same coming your way.
Bless you,
