Wow! Seven years... What a way to reflect...
Did you know that the number 7 is representation of completion and perfection in the Bible. What a blessing and boy am I every ready.
It has been 7 years since life as I knew it and thought it was supposed to be changed. It was the start of the year of my divorce. Seven. I have learned so much about myself and am in a place where I can stand strong and be happy. I learned I enjoy true friendships and relationships. I learned my faith is most important to me. I learned to accept myself right where I am. I learned to believe I am beautiful not matter what shape or size I am. It is a true joy to stand strong in my lessons.
Life always comes with events: marriage, babies, college graduations, celebrations, and even tragic events: broken relationships, deaths, and accidents. They leave marks on us and help us to navigate through the times of our life with joy and anticipation or fear and anxiousness.
I have learned something from everyone I have met and am so grateful for my last lesson. My friend said, "I just don't have a reason to reach out to her" and that changed my life.
We must look forward not backwards. Lot and his wife left Sodom and Gomorrah and were told not to look back because you would turn into a salt pillar. Unfortunately for Lot's wife she looked back. There is a reason the rear view mirror is smaller than the window we look at in front of us. Let the past reside in the past. Learn the lesson and move to higher ground.
Seven, God took seven days to create this world and on the 7th day he rested. He completed his work and said this is perfection I shall rest. This is my resting year.
I worked hard for six years on becoming a better me and enjoying the work and blessings I have. Now, this is my resting year. I am going to enjoy the perfection.
