My Traveling Shoes

Done found myself a new pair of travelin' shoes to wear on this leg of my journey. Handmade to fit and suit me just right, supportin' and comfortin' me each step of the way.They are wild and colorful as I chose them to be, they suit my personality.
I've traveled so many miles in shoes that someone else bought for me, plain, poorly fitted, worn, second hand, hand me downs. Ohh, they hurt my feet and took me places that I didn't need to go, places that I didn't want to go. For many years I put them on. I was told it was my duty, but my heart was heavy and my cares so many.

Happy New Year to All!!! 2010




It's New Year's Eve and I am thinking about 2010. I'm gathering my hopes and goals for this new year and thought it would be a good way to embark on this new leg of my journey. So, I decided to make 10 goals for myself to be conscious of throughout the coming year, improving as I am able each of these areas of my life:


1) I will seek to develop my relationship with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
2) I will seek to listen and find the purposes in my life. This will be my mantra.
3) Family: working to nurture these most important relationships.
4) Owning and developing the gifts/talents within me: making a priority in my free time to improve my natural abilities.
5) Friendships: I will be open to new friendships, to nurturing old friendships, and willing to let go of friendships that aren't healthy.
6) I will work on ME. I will seek to be more tolerant of my weaknesses, faults, and difficulties as I also seek to grow, to be healed, and to be a better person in these areas. Alongside this, I will seek to own and deepen my confidence in the strengths, gifts, and talents given to me. Always remembering that they are a gift given by my creator, but it is MY responsibility to use and develop them for the good of myself and others and the world.  
7) I will seek to have physical exercise/activity at least 3 X's a week. Take my vitamins and have an early bedtime 3 X's a week.
8) I will seek to read some genres that I don't usually read. I need to develop more of a variety in the scope my interests.
9) I hope to simplify my life by getting rid of the clutter in my life...too many things.
10) I hope to organize my life, as I simplify it. Everything should have a specific place.


These are simply goals to work toward. Inch by Inch:) I'd like to say here Jeanne Denton that I love you. I love you with all your weaknesses, faults, and problems. I love you with all of your strengths, talents and gifts. I love you for who you are right now. I love you for all that you are not and will never be. I love you for who you are becoming. May God continue to grace you with the strength to listen and to make appropriate choices for your life. May you continue to live your truth and stand firm on your own two feet. I pray this for you and for everyone. ~ Amen.
