I think most of us have a certain “color” we just look good in. You know what I am talking about. That color that just makes our eyes pop, our hair gleam, our hips look like we didn’t eat that entire bag of Dove chocolate in the bathtub last night.
And no, it isn’t black.
My color is green. This revelation was rather odd to me, because green really isn’t my favorite color. (Infantry blue, baby! #America)
But for some odd reason, green just works on me.
And right now, we are in a season of spring. Things are fresh. New. Blossoming. Green.
Unfortunately, my favorite shirt, husbands ACU’s and grass in the backyard aren’t the only things that are green in my life.
Sometimes, my attitude is a bit green.
Yes, for all of our mothers out there– the “Green-eyed monster” still lives. Especially in the harder seasons of army wife life.
Want to read more about my issues with “green dreams?” Hop on over to Army Wife Network to experience my very “colorful” struggles.
As things “green” up this spring, what changes do you feel called to make to tame that green dream of envy? How can you continually see the good in your calling in army-wife life? What do you love most about it? Chime in and leave a comment.
I challenge us to do some “spring cleaning” of our own this year. Don’t worry (too much) about that cluttered closet. Instead, let’s take a close look at our heart. Our attitude. Our dreams.
Tame the green dream– and rejoice in this ever-blossoming experience that is loving our MAN in green.
From Green to Redeemed,
“Then I observed that most people are motivated to success because they envy their neighbors. But this, too, is meaningless—like chasing the wind.” ~Ecclesiastes 4:4 NLT
