i am learning.

I am learning that a handful of great friends is better than a bunch of so-so ones... even if the great ones are a long way away. 

I am learning that my faith isn't dependent upon others but upon the God that I serve. 

I am learning that Christians are truly an imperfect people, saved solely by the grace we have been given by our Creator. 

I am learning what it means to be redeemed. 

I am learning that my family is a treasure. 

I am learning that life is not about me. 

I am learning about the blessings marriage brings.

I am learning the definition of true friendship. 

I am learning that my God calls me to serve, not fill a pew.

I am learning to step up when other won't. 

I am learning that questions should be asked even if they will not always be answered. 

I am learning that we don't always get what we want; we get what's best for us. 

I am learning my purpose in being.

Some of these lessons hurt. Some of these lessons are hard. 

But I am learning. 

"Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance."

- Proverbs 1:5

Thank You for this....we are all still learning. Sometimes I just want to make people do things, but I have learned that only ends in frustration! Sometimes a small but dedicated group actually brings me the most encouragment:) I kind of imagined that things would even out as I got older....but I don't think that is going to be the case. Should be interesting!

My parents warned me things wouldn't necessarily change as I got older, and I'm learning that is definitely true! I do think you're absolutely right, though... A small but dedicated group is encouragement enough. I'm grateful for you!
