If I had to list my favorite things in life. It would change, depending on what stage of my life I’m in. Such as a child my favorite things where:
1) Play dates with friends
2) My Little Pony
3) Bedtime stories
When I was a teenager that list changed to:
2) Talking on the phone
3) All things fashionable and on trend
And this list went on, with the names of the boys changing, as crushes go. Along with my favorite boy bands ,celebrities and fashion magazine.
Here are my twenties:
1) My long term boyfriend ( So, I thought)
2) Our First apartment together
3) My First apartment alone ( enough said)
This would also included career, car, nightclubs, and apple martinis.
But, the older I become the more that list matures.These are the things I favor, now in my life:
1) Going on Hikes
2) Reading or writing outside on my balcony
Other’s things included on this list a glass of wine with friends over dinner. Enjoying time with my family, crocheting, photography,vacations, bee keeping and quite time
But, what’s not on my rotating lists, is my time in the mornings, when I meditate on Jehovah’s words through the teachings of Jesus Christ. Why, didn’t I mention God in Jesus Christ? Simply, because all through enjoyable moments. My faith is who I ‘am , not listed because this bible verse says it best.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. ~ Hebrews 13:8
There isn’t a realer statement than that, for me. Also, across my heart and soul no matter the age I make a list up. It’s will always be due to the Heavenly Father, that I have the emotions to enjoy the things like and love. And it’s Because of the Father through Jesus Christ, that gives me the courage to take heed and learn a lesson from loving too much.
Thank You, Leah.
God Bless you all in the name of Jesus Christ.
