A Rush of Life

Standard

“Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.” – Angela Monet

The publication Her Nashville put on the event – Sugar Rush last night.  The event was a competition between local bakeries.  For $5 (tickets were $10, but I got mine 1/2 off), you got to sample sugary type foods from about 20 bakeries.  There was toffee, cupcakes, cheesecake, Boston cream pie, cookies, and other treats to put you in a diabetic coma.

For a girl who eats mostly plants, my system went crazy!  I was on such a sugar high! I was talking at high rates of speed and my energy had exploded.

That’s how my life has been the last couple of months – on a high.  I’m like the kid who wants, more, more, more.  Life has been so sweet lately and my cravings are increasing.   I want to write more, give me, travel more, meet new people, and deepen the relationships I currently have.

Life is like a lemon and I want to squeeze every bit of juice I possibly can.  But there have been times in my life when I felt like I haven’t met up to life’s expectations.  I saw the glass half empty instead of half full, I settled, or held back out of fear.  Just curious, have you ever felt that way?

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” – John 10:10

If my Heavenly Father gave up His life, so I could live the abundant one, I surely don’t want to let Him down and I hope you don’t either!
