Check out Gertie doing her thing. I mean, when did I post her first steps in the walker? Was it less than two weeks ago? Was it a week ago? Now I can’t even remember.

We still have a long way to go, but her therapists are impressed with how quickly she’s progressing.

I’m starting to notice something. And I don’t know if this happens every time or if it’s just a cause/effect thing, but the moment I start giving up control and giving in to life, to God, to contentment, good things happen.

And maybe they don’t just happen. Maybe they’ve been happening, but I’d clouded my eyes so much I couldn’t see them. Or maybe my definition of “good” changes. Maybe my standards lower. Maybe I magnify my tiny circle of life to the point that I can see the small things more clearly. And the small things have been breaking me lately. I’m determined to finally let them make me.

I’ve been dwelling on this verse: “…make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you…” 1Thess 4:11  

Make it your ambition.  Your ambition.

…to lead a quiet life.

This intrigues me.
