  1. Alright! What freedom comes from ‘turning the page,’ as you say, from following His lead. That’s where the adventure lies. I look forward to reading what comes next on this path.

  2. Yay for the page turning in your life. It is always better to follow His lead and not worry about earthly stuff!!

  3. I’m right there with you! It has taken me 32 years to get to the place where I am OK with who I am and who God is making me into and not care about what others think.

  4. Now I’m humming that old Sunday School song…

    “I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart!” It’s a good song to have stuck in my head. : )

  5. I love this. I’ve been led to this place lately, too…such a place of soft refining and gentle loving grace.

  6. Finding the joy without the applause. That is such a great line. Isn’t it something we all need to work on? Just being and doing to please him.

    What a great message.
