Some lucky lady went on a stroll on the beach with me that night. 😏
Lately I've been asking myself the question: "Am I thriving in the season I'm in, or just surviving?" I can so easily get caught up in these times of waiting and take for granted the growth that can only come in the these seasons. The last couple of years I've had a lot of times of waiting on the Lord to direct me and show me what's next. I'm not going to say it's been easy because it definitely hasn't been, but I'm starting to see that there is so much fruit that can come out of these seasons. I started to think that while I was waiting for God to send me wherever I'm going next that I could just go through life half heartedly and not fully commit to where God had me at this time. But the last few weeks I've felt the Lord showing me how important and necessary these times of waiting are in order to prepare for the next season. There are so many things that I've felt Jesus speak to me about things that I'm going to be doing at some point in my life, but without these times of growth I might never be ready for them. So even though it feels like I don't understand God's timing in all of this I can still trust in His goodness and that there so much more to learn from this season of waiting on Him. "I am sure that God keeps no one waiting unless He sees that it is good for him to wait." -C.S Lewis
This picture I took at Azusa Now of Joy Dawson with Todd White moves my heart a lot. The humility @toddwhitelc
carries is undeniable having one legend pray another is truly inspiring how no matter how high we get we must always position our hearts in humility and thanksgiving. I pray and hope that we learn to not let success get the best of us. What's the point of having it all if your full of pride and bitterness. If your only desire is to make it big with no purpose but to fulfill your ego then you will easily be brought down. Today let's be thankful for every situation in our lives. Let us not grow a heart full of bitterness. If your neighbor need help be the first to say hey I'm here, how can I help? Let's be a group of people who love not for fame or followers but for full unconditional love.
I'm talkin' fear, fear of missin' out on you and me.
Hit the Sun Dried Tomato for some good grub. Just appetizers and no meals. We had the oven baked artichoke with Parmesan, pine nut piccata & tarragon aioli, Panko crusted crispy calamari with a mango curry aioli, the crispy blackened chicken spring rolls with honey-cilantro pesto, the stuffed Pasilla pepper with risotto,portabello mushroom, brie, smoked chipotle cream, topped with a poached egg and finally the pasta-less vegetarian lasagna with layers of Parmesan, eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, red bell pepper & spinach topped with fresh tomato sauce and goat cheese. Lots of food. It was a good meal! #sundriedtomatocafe #sanclemente #sanclementefood #eatingout #goodfoodie #goodfoodgoodlife #nomnom

Some days, I feel like tossing my phone in the ocean and totally ignoring social media. But then Instagram draws me back with the art, connection with people I love and admire, and discovering small shops that blow my mind. These are a few I've fallen in love with on my fave little people 😍 #shopsmall
