Can You Feel It?

Can you feel it?

A brand new year is knocking at the door.

Are you nervous, scared, indifferent?

I don’t know what kind of year 2013 was for you.

For most of us it was filled with a mixture of love, pain, forgiveness, hurt, joy, laughter, tears, second chances…it was life.

So many times we can think that a new year is a blank slate and a second chance.

You know what?

EACH DAY is that.

You don’t have to wait for a new year to have that clean slate or that chance to be better…to do better.

Each day that we have air in our lungs we get that.

Isn’t that powerful and amazing?

Each day!

So, for today and tomorrow and the next day…what do I want?

I want to just be open.

I want to ask the the Lord, “what next?” and be ready.

How many times is there something really amazing waiting for us and we just aren’t quite ready?

Be ready.

I want to find joy in the little moments and make sure I am in the moment and not always thinking about tomorrow.

I can already feel it.

It feels different and exciting.

I don’t know if it will be found in the big things or the little things but I can feel it.

Here in Colorado there is only one place we go to concerts because once you go to Red Rocks …you can’t go anywhere else:-)

I don’t think it even matters who we are listening to.

One of the joys of living in this state is going to Red Rocks and listening to great music but the BEST part is…

Looking up and seeing the stars.

Looking around and seeing the incredible rock formations.

Looking ahead and seeing the lights of Denver.

When I found this video it just feels like New Years.

It is at one of my favorite places.

It is celebrating LIFE and FREEDOM.

It is celebrating what is and what is to come.

And there is a disco ball…come on!

Here is to a blank slate and second chances tomorrow, the next day and the next and the……

“God’s Great Dance Floor”

I’m coming back to the start
Where You found me
I’m coming back to Your heart
Now I surrender
Take me
This is all I can bring

I’m coming back to the start
I got this freedom
In here we feel Your heart
Your heartbeat for us
Take me
This is all I can bring

[Chorus:]
You’ll never stop loving us
No matter how far we run
You’ll never give up on us
All of heaven shouts: let the future begin
Let the future begin

Take me
This is all I can bring

[Chorus:]
You’ll never stop loving us
No matter how far we run
You’ll never give up on us
All of heaven shouts: let the future begin

I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
I feel alive, I come alive
I am alive on God’s great dance floor
God’s great dance floor!

    you know the biggest thing that is changing me is practicing being present and not thinking about the NEXT thing all of the time. of not letting my mind wander into tomorrow because i get all tangled up in what if’s and huge fears and i become irritable and not able to be OPEN and receptive. i LOVE your heart in this post. i am right there with you…praying for you to be open this year to all God has for you..in all of the sacred small moments within each day….sending hugs xo
