Have vs. Get

So often when I think about my life, I get overwhelmed with all the to-dos. This probably isn't a shock to those of you that know us personally--Peter and I live very full lives. 

I just realized that I don't often think about my week in a super positive way though, and that's something I think would be a good thing to change. Instead of thinking about focusing on all of the things that I have to do, I want to remind myself of the things I get to do. It's practically a cliche now--but wisdom often lies in the cliche.

This week, for example, I get to work on making a video for my job with some amazing shots that I was able to film this morning at church. I'm so excited about the footage I was able to capture, and I can't wait to share the final project with our church and put it on our website!

Also this week, I really want to make space for some girl time. There are a few ladies that have been on my mind, and I hope to at least shoot them a few more texts than normal, or maybe even give them a call or meet for coffee. 

WorshipArts will be ministering at Lighthouse Community Church's youth group Wednesday, and I'm excited for them--I hope it'll work out for me to go this time, and I missed out on the Horizon Worship Night.

I definitely still have a lot of things I have to do... But if I can keep this perspective, "get to" is happier than "has to", then I know this week will be so much more positive.

Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Philippians 4:8
