This week I saw some amazing quotes on Facebook.  They really made me think. I wanted to share them with you to see what you think as well.This first one popped up on facebook from one of my friends.  It is true.  You would think that boundaries takes your freedom away.  God is a parent.  A parent of us.  He is our Father.  He only cares about our wellbeing and He wants us to be happy.  He gives us boundaries for our good.  The boundary is put down because he not only wants us to be happy, he wants us to be safe.  God also does not want us to emotionally hurt ourselves or other people.  If we follow the boundaries we will be happy and have the wonderful blessings in life.  Freedom will be there for us.  The spirit lives in our hearts.  The blessings will set our hearts free the emotional and spiritual freedom will actually make our hearts sing.  Please tell me what you think about it.

“Did you know that having boundaries actually gives us freedom? When my daughter, Aster, was just getting tall enough to reach everything she’s not supposed to, she discovered the drawer where we keep scissors and safety pins. And, she was determined to touch every dangerous object in there.</p><br /><br /><br /><br />
<p>So of course we put child locks on the drawers and cabinets that were now within her reach. At first I felt bad; like we were taking away all this freedom from Aster, but then I realized the new limits would actually give her more freedom to roam around the kitchen safely.</p><br /><br /><br /><br />
<p>In the Bible, King David talked about how he wanted to walk in the path of God’s commands because they set his heart free. His words remind me that God’s boundary lines show us where it’s safe to go. So, I’m learning to embrace what may feel like limits, because within God’s boundaries, my heart is free!” - Renee Swope</p><br /><br /><br /><br />

I’m sorry to just give you a link to this one.  I tried to copy it so many times yet was unable to post the video.  This is my husbands second or third cousin Dylan.  Who is in the Pacific Northwest Ballet.  They are presently doing the Nutcracker.  This is only a 10 second cut of him doing an amazing jump with no intro into it.  He jumped so high I was stunned.  Please just click on this you will love to see him.  Again sorry for the technical difficulties.  Cut and Paste if you need to.  Enjoy!
