Breathe out. Breathe in. Simple, right?
We do it all day long without thinking about it. Until a health challenge makes us mindful of it.
Breathe out. Breathe in. Just like life.
Let go. Let in.
My faith journey of the past couple years has invited me to let go of old hurts, old behaviors, and yes, even some old friends.
Breathe out. Breathe in.
And with each letting go, each loss, room is made for new to enter in.
Today, I was reminded of one of the lovely new things in my life, in the form of a new circle of women friends who are an absolute gift in my life. We met through singing, at church. We gather once a month for lunch, or dinner. And guaranteed it is a three hour adventure. We laugh, we've cried, we share, we celebrate God active in our lives.
Breathe out. Breathe in. Letting go is hard.
Breathe out. Breathe in. Embrace the gifts of new life.
