Trying To Seek BALANCE In Life


Yesterday I came to a realization that lately my life felt a little unbalanced. I am a firm believer that you have to have a well balanced life.

By balanced I mean, spiritually, mentally, and physically. All of these areas must be fed equal proportions throughout the day. At least as closely as you can get to equal.

I decided I would try to be more balanced yesterday, I read my morning devotional, had prayer time. 

I worked out in the yard for a little physical activity. 

But the most precious time was spent with my husband listening to a beautiful song he had found that touched his heart, and he wanted to share it with me.

You see music is very important in our home. My husband has a wonderful singing voice so music touches our hearts deeply.
 
I immediately realized when the song started that it was a precious moment, not only with my husband but with my God. 

You see this song stirred up emotions of gratitude for all the moments, and all the beauty God has given me to see in my life time.

I don't know if it will hit the same cord with you or not, but I feel it is definitely worth sharing today........

Absolutely beautiful, that is the kind of music that kind of fills your heart. I am going to forward it to my mom. And how great it is that you recognized you need to "right your ship" and take stock of what needed to be done and you did it. Good for you!!

It is a good idea to reflect on the issue of balance in one's life regularly. I know I have been tipping the scales in one direction lately. Thanks for the reminder! Have a lovely Sunday and a great week ahead.

Nice Thoughts! Important considerations for all of us. For me, balance shifts almost daily. If I don't pay attention to it all, everything suffers. Balance starts with a strong internal foundation and I have to keep focused, remembering my priorities and when enough, is enough!
Have a great day!,

We all lose our center sometimes...but it feels good to find our core again. This was a beautiful post, thanks for sharing. And you know I LOVE that song and the video photography was amazing, too. Love you my friend! xxoo

I struggle with balance daily. Some days I'm more successful than others. The most important thing, I think, is that I am trying. Lovely post Kathysue. Hope you are having a perfect Sunday!
