Gingerbread Cookies, A Wet Cat, and More

As for God, His way is perfect: The Lord's word is flawless; He shields all who take refuge in Him. ~ Psalm 18:30

Living in this knowledge takes so much stress out of daily living. I don't have all the answers and it was never intended for me to. But I do have a loving Heavenly Father who does and who will continue to guide and shield me as I allow Him to show me the way, and lead me in the life He created me to live.

Today we decorated and ate gingerbread cookies.

Michael went on a youth trip to Richmond yesterday to look at Christmas lights. He came home with a few Christmas ornaments that he hung on the Christmas tree this morning.

I found this kitten (named Ranger) sitting on the back of the chair upstairs all miserable and wet from falling into the water bucket. So I dried him as best as I could with a towel and then used the hair dryer to finish drying him.

More work got done upstairs this evening. Chris put a little of the gray paint on the wall to see if we like this color. I think we've decided we do. And apparently Ranger hasn't learned his lesson about water buckets!

The cornmeal mush I had planned to fry for breakfast this morning didn't set up right overnight so I stick it in the oven to cook a little more and I'll try again tomorrow. So we had sausage, toast and apples for breakfast. We had sourdough flatbread pizzas, peas and applesauce for lunch and pork tenderloin with potatoes, carrots, celery and onions, and wild rice for dinner.

Ditch the mask covering up your insecurity because perfectionism is not self-improvement - it's trying to gain approval by looking perfect. It will hinder your success and limit your progress, and remember, it's impossible to achieve. There will always be haters, and you will always be judged, so you might as well take your best shot instead of holding yourself back. You are never going to be perfect, and that is perfectly normal. Embrace it, and focus on making significant progress, not trying to achieve perfection. I will take that one step further and say that consistency is better than perfection. At a college commencement address, Jim Carrey said, "Your need for acceptance can make you invisible in this world." You weren't born to be invisible, you were born to being your unique gifts into the world.
