I Am So Happy!

Recently I came back from an adventure trip in Peru.  Before leaving for the trip I realized that some commissions I had planned on did not take place and my finances were getting low.  Upon returning from the trip I was trying to recover from being very sick.  The man I had been dating for a couple of months quit communicating while on the trip and is no longer a part of my life.  Here I was just thinking that it just was this perfect situation where I could so easily feel sorry for myself.  As I was going through my mail after being gone for 17 days there was this big red envelope that had been put in my mailbox with no mailing address that was clearly a Christmas card.  The card says “There’s no better time than Christmas to open our eyes to the goodness around us …to appreciate the people in our lives as the gifts they are, and to feel joy more deeply than ever.  There’s no better time than Christmas to think of the good and gracious people who are truly gifts to know …people like you.”  Inside the card were two money orders that were in an amount that was just what I needed to be able to pay my house note and help with my expenses.  I immediately put my face in my hands and started crying.  The reason that it was so amazing is because the person did not sign the card and wanted to be completely anonymous.  All I could think was that only God knew exactly what my situation was and He provided what I needed for today.  I have to say that I am absolutely clueless to the effect that I have on people.  It really was a surprise that someone wanted to give back to me because I had been special in their life.

I don’t know about you, but I used to be pretty hard on myself.  Then over time I started realizing that I didn’t have to be so hard on myself.  That I could let go of the insecurities and find peace and contentment with right now where I was in life.  That God had been doing a mighty work in me over the last few years and it was time to stop worrying and just BE HAPPY.

Receiving the anonymous gift helped to put into perspective how rich life is.  That it showed me that I have amazing friends and family who love and support me, that God is faithful to pour out His love, grace, mercy and provision every single day, and you just need to love who you are as a woman.  Most of all it has shown me that you can remove the chains that bind you, throw your arms open to the universe and just allow yourself to go out and just LOVE.  Be that light for others and just let love flow in its own way.   You are FREE and HAPPY,  but most of all YOU ARE LOVED!
