If you're happy and you know it

It's one of my favorite songs to sing with the kids. Probably because it has taken JJ so long to understand how to clap his hands, stomp his feet etc. But it's been more than that in the last couple days.
I've been happy. I've felt peaceful. I've been calm and not stressed.
I was blessed to enjoy a military spouse appreciation luncheon last weekend at my church. I enjoyed getting to know some women better and meet some new ones! We had a great guest speaker. Carey Scott. She spoke on our value as women to God and how we matter to Him and how much it must grieve His heart for us to feel worthless and unimportant.
It was such a great tie in to my epiphany the night before. My worth does not come from my husband or friends. My self-esteem should not be dependent on the people I know or those that don't want to know me. My value should come from acknowledging myself as a child of God and instead of asking the world "what do you think of me" I need to sit in peace and ask Him "What do you think of me".
There is a great pin on Pinterest;
It outlines verses and what they say about God's desire for us and relationship with us. I actually printed it out a week or so ago and it's on my night table. This is a great reminder to me.
I'm truly enjoying walking. I am honestly very excited about it. I know it's not going to be easy but I'm surprised at how much enjoyment I am getting out of moving my body and pushing myself in ways I haven't before.
I snapped a great picture on my phone last week of Cheyenne Mountain in the early morning. It was beautiful and I love living so near the mountains. I love the views and can't wait until I can head into the mountains and enjoy them on my own two feet. :)
