Amazing 2018 - A Grateful Heart

OMG โค๏ธ

2018, has been incredible I just wanted to share some highlights. If I share everything l would need to write a book ๐Ÿค”... The last eight months have been filled with a renewed love of Music, Heartfelt appreciation for my amazing Family and awesome Friends. Thank you, for your undying love and support. I adore you all !!! The HOLY SPIRIT touched my soul in May and he changed my life ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜. He filled my soul with an unconditional love ๐Ÿ˜ .... That I could not contain, it overflowed and I tried to share it with everyone I knew ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ’ฏ (scary moments for some) lol. Some thought I needed a MRI ๐Ÿ˜‚. And some showed me love return.โค๏ธ Grateful for you! Then I spent approximately 2 weeks with a heartfelt sadness ๐Ÿ˜ข grieving ๐Ÿ’” my sister in heaven but, I gained PEACE โ˜ฎ. I joined a church and I solidified my FAITH I found LOVE. โœ๏ธ I got BAPTIZED and I found JOY๐Ÿ’งSuch an amazing time in my life.

For my birthday this year ๐ŸŽ I bought myself my first TATTOO. "โœ๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜ โค๏ธ agape โค๏ธ " is now proudly displayed on my wrist (which means the highest LOVE in the bible). Yikes ๐Ÿ˜ณ... @$%^* I found PAIN ๐Ÿ˜ณ(loI) It hurt more than I thought ๐Ÿค”. I started a new JOB, utilizing my passion of photography ๐Ÿ“ธ in churches across Tennessee and Kentucky. I found KINDRED SPIRITS. Ironically the company I work for's name is "LIFETOUCH".๐Ÿค”.. I started writing โœ๏ธ my feelings, that is something that is totally new to me. I found my HEART. I am calling them "HEARTFELTS" โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ข I submitted two of my "Heartfelts" to the Upperroom in Nashville, for there monthly devotional magazine. Wish me luck, hoping they will choose one or both of them for the March issue. ๐Ÿ˜ I am told the devotionals are interpreted into approximately 29 different languages and sent around the world. (spreading the ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿผ) I am volunteering when and where I can. I found GRATITUDE. My grandchildren talked us into adopting a rescue kitten his name is JOURNEY ๐Ÿ˜ธ I found LAUGHTER. I have made some awesome new FRIENDS.๐Ÿ‘ซ I found FUN. I have been getting reconnected with ๐ŸŒณ Nature. I hiked 4 miles to and from Cummings Falls ๐Ÿ’งin Cookeville TN. Beautiful views!! I found GODS ART ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ˜.

While in the operating room I had my doctor ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โš•๏ธcancel my hand surgery he said, "my hand seemed to be healed" ๐Ÿ˜โœ๏ธ๐Ÿ™. I found GOD's MIRACLE. I went on a cruise ๐Ÿšข with 2 beautiful caring souls (mom and aunt) I found time for FAMILY. I danced in a conga line ๐Ÿ’ƒ in Mexico.. Free shots lol ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ˜‚ I found FREEDOM to be me. Not holding back, living and loving life. If I want to go to a concert, event or somewhere and everyone busy. I go anyway... Always looking for new adventures, I call them field trips. I have been blessed ๐Ÿ•Šand met some incredible new souls on my trips. ๐Ÿ˜Š This Christmas I visited Santa ๐ŸŽ… I found the CHILD in me. ๐Ÿ‘ถ I am now an official hugger, so don't stand too close ๐Ÿค— ๐Ÿ™ˆ (hugs ). I found WELCOMING ARMS. ๐Ÿค— I try to share this AMAZING LOVE โค๏ธโค๏ธ that my heavenly father has shared with me whenever the opportunity opens. I love it when the person I share him with response is so positive. It's an amazing feeling and blesses my soul. I found BLESSINGS. ELOHIM used MUSIC ๐Ÿ˜ to open my heart and soul and now I see life in the WOW ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜. I found song LYRICS touch my soul.

Unfortunately, I did lose a friend that couldn't find it in her heart ๐Ÿ’” to stay. I found FORGIVENESS.๐Ÿ˜” But, she does not know. I found PATIENCE. However, what I gained is amazing ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜. God is teaching me to LOVE like him. (a work in progress and a 2019 Goal) I found GRACE. โœ๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜ I am super excited to see how God wants my journey to continue to unfold in 2019 ... โค๏ธ๐ŸŽถ I pray that he continues to bless my life with love, thus enriching my relationships in 2019. (God, Family, Friends old and new and the ones to still to be discovered)

I value you and if you need help on how to live in the WOW ๐Ÿ˜. Let me know, I found the KEY โœ๏ธ. (Actually he found me ๐Ÿ˜)

Much love always,

Lori ๐Ÿ˜

LESSONS I learned in 2018 - Love our father in heaven with all your heart and soul, adore your family and friends. Embrace life with no fear, RISK LOVE. Live life large and LOVE with all that you are!!!! โค๏ธ Life is short, grab all you can. Find your inner child. Value and cherish all relationships!! No one is disposable. Find that quality you love in a person and tell them you appreciate them. It's ok to be vulnerable it shows you are human.

Be Loving, kind, forgiving and grateful

and have patience.

๐Ÿ˜„ LIVE LIFE and LOVE in the WOW!! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Thank you for reading, wishing you and your families health, peace and his love in abundance in 2019. (HUGS)
