Be Losing Something

I have much to ponder after this weekend.
Prayer Retreat.
Visit with mom and dad.
Sexy Neck’s colleagues at our new house for a gingerbread party.
JC losing a tooth.

My life continues to be a little bit of a lot.

The most exciting news is that our oldest lost his first tooth.

The reason for the title of the post was my reflection post tooth losing.

My son was elated. He didn’t need that tooth anymore. He knew that there was a bigger and better one coming. He was filled with joy. Pure joy and anticipation of the new tooth to come.

How often do I want to hold onto that old tooth or that old hurt or that old voice in my head that condemns? It seems that many women I know carry burdens, unforgiveness, negative self-talk to the detriment of ourselves.

This Christmas, I will let go of my judgement about the way I look, the thoughts I have that condemn my words and the feeling of never being enough. (Haha! The irony of this blog!)

I know that God wants me to let go of these baby teeth, enjoy the gap and wait to see what bigger and better things will come.

How about you? Is there anything you could let go of this Christmas season on this tenth day of Advent?

Glory to God for simple things, like teeth, that give me such great things to ponder in grace and freedom and love.

Let go.

Enjoy the gap.

Wait.

Journey.

The big tooth will come.
