I am calling you to a life of constant communication with me. Basic training includes learning to live above your circumstances, even while interacting on that cluttered plane of life. You yearn for a simplified lifestyle, so that your communication with me can be uninterrupted. But I challenge you to relinquish the fantasy of an uncluttered world. Accept each day just as it comes, and find me in the Midst of it all.
Talk with me about every aspect of your day, including your feelings. Remember that your ultimate goal is not to control or fix everything around you; it is to keep communing with Me. A successful day is one in which you have stayed in touch with Me, even if many things remain undone at the end of the day. Do not let your to-do list (written or mental) become an idol directing your life. Instead, ask My Spirit to guide you moment by moment. He will keep you close to Me.

One of my new favorite spring activities is hiking. Amber and I have been going on walks on these cool trails that I didn't even know existed (which I've already blogged about). We got lost yesterday and it was hilarious! We found our way back, but we got a lot of extra exercise and Vitamin D :) I also love baseball (Ole Miss baseball and Orioles baseball) and eating crawfish. Still waiting on pool season...it should be here before we know it!
What are your favorite things to do in the spring?
