i love reading the books of the funny ladies. tina, amy, mindy, and i'm still waiting for the queen (kristen wiig) to write her's. i love a good belly laugh and i love straight forward advice about life, which is why i think i connected with ms. poehler's book so much. by no means do i think the woman has it all together, but i do think her snippets pack a powerful punch.
i've been struggling this month. realizing i have a lot more fear and anxiety that i'd like to admit, and trying to figure out how to cast (all) my burdens on Jesus and leave them there. thats the thing about burdens, a lot of the time there are strings attached to us and when we cast them out, we start to walk away, they end up following us still.
i've been thinking yes please for a few days. yes please to new seasons, yes please, to warm weather, yes please to being stretched and grown. as cheesy as it sounds, (so sorry.) i just want to say yes please to Jesus. he never forces us to grow but i do think he offers it through trials, and when he offers i want my response to also be a request. yes please. make me who you want me to be. i am oh so willing.
