The Truth: You are loved. You are Beautiful. You have a purpose.

Doing Life Together

“The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest. Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.
‭‭Exodus 33:14 -15 NIV

40 Things to Give Up for a Better Life

#3 Rugged Individualism

After a certain age one realizes her dependency on others. Here’s an incomplete list of people I couldn’t do life without:

  • The guy who changes my car’s oil
  • The staff at Wise Pies
  • All the makers of paper, pen and yarn
  • Coffee baristas and chocolatiers
  • Jody, Jen and Lisa who know me the best and still like me
  • Pastor and Sara who check the full service order every week for me
  • Jeanette who is my biggest cheerleader
  • Dee who gives me the best writing advice
  • Susan who thinks better of me than I really am and tells others
  • My dad who prays for me
  • My family who love me, Baby Beth
  • Jessica who calls to talk and tells me she loves me
  • Jo who inspires me
  • Jaena who makes me proud
  • And last, but not least, Jeff who takes care of ALL the rest

After listing all these people, I know I could never do life alone, nor would I want to.

But most importantly, I’ve learned I can’t do life without God. I need him every hour of every day. And like Moses, I don’t want to go anywhere unless God goes with me.
