Free to live real


I am kind of obsessed with word definitions. I love this definition of the word live from

LIVE: to experience first hand (living a dream), to be thoroughly absorbed by or involved with.

If I am living REAL this is exactly what I am doing. I am experiencing this life first hand. The life I am supposed to be living right here, right now. If I say “I’m living the dream”, I mean it. It might not be my dream, but it’s God’s dream for me. If I want this life to be real then I do have to be thoroughly absorbed in it. Hiding out in my bedroom at home, letting the world spin around me, isn’t living. And living real isn’t always easy. We have real issues, real junk, real disappointments. But, there is also real JOY in absorbing myself in this life of mine, even the hard parts of it.

I get real peanut butter smudgy smooches from my babies. I get to smell the real crisp autumn air. I get to see real growth in our family, physically and spiritually. My hand fits perfectly in the hand of than man I love and we hang on real tight. And I know that beyond all doubt my God comes for me right at the very moment I need him so that I may continue to live this life on earth and my eternal life with him and live it to the full.

How blessed I am to be free to really live this life and live it to the full!


About believingjoy

Who am I? That's a good question! I am Jen...a blemished woman who enjoys a tidbit of tidyness mixed with dash of craziness to create a life that is simply mine! I adore my 4 children and their daddy. I love little bits of wild like tattoos and things that make us unique. I like to mix vintage with new and strive for progress over perfection! I believe that not a single person on this planet is perfect and that's okay, it's what makes us who we are. My desire is to find joy is all circumstances with a smile and a choice to believe.
