I Declare a New Season in Our House
Do you ever feel a new season beginning? I think I sense that right now for my family. School is out. Employment is steady. We're part of a church we love. The dust and noise of the last four years is beginning to settle. In the last year, Sara and I have both gained weight and gotten out of the healthy habits we both love. On top of all the stuff I listed above, she and I started a 21-day fast together yesterday and it just feels significant. I mean really significant. I think we're in the process of breaking some nasty cycles - cycles of fear, cycles of regret, cycles of treating food like a god, cycles of impatience with our kids . . . I'm sure there are more. I feel a new season and I'm so very thankful for it this morning.
