Take five second seconds, close your eyes and place your hand over your heart.
That’s a miracle beating inside of you.
Just think, there is nothing you have done or can ever do to control the beating of your heart.
Of course, we can run, jump, get excited or afraid and notice the change in the pace of our heartbeats, but one thing is for sure, we ultimately have no control over the job of our hearts.
And this, indeed, is a miracle.
It is a constant reminder that we are not in complete control. It’s also a reminder of our mortality.
As intelligent as we humans are, we lack control of more than we think.
And if we let it, we can allow something as simple as our heartbeats be our daily reminder that our Heavenly Father holds our very lives in the palm of His hands.
Each day you wake and feel the beating of your heart, let that be a reminder that you are loved and cared for.
Let it remind you that your life is precious.
Let it remind you that your life is a gift.

I prayed these words in between breathy sobs and running tears. I finally admitted it…I had doubts.
Have you ever had this deep, gut feeling that you’re supposed to be somewhere else?
We are not born into this world wanting to be anything other than ourselves.
It’s something about the end of the year that pushes me to introspection. As soon as November rolls around, I begin to feel a tiny bit of anxiousness to tie up any loose ends left in the year.
Do you feel this way too? I seem to always do.
I would be lying to you if I said that I don’t think about getting married...because I do.
