"When a soul recognises the will of God and shows a readiness to submit to it entirely, then God gives Himself to such a soul and renders it most powerful succour under all circumstances." - Rev. Jean-Pierre de Caussade

My eyes aren't actually brown....and other life-changing epiphanies

Welcome to Into Your Will, the blog where Jen rambles about weird stuff sometimes. You're in for a treat today! Life-changing epiphanies. At the age of 31.

My eyes aren't actually brown like I always thought. I always thought my eyes were brown. Light brown...but still brown. Sometimes I would stare at my eyes and think they were kind of a weird brown color. You know what I learned though? They're not brown!! Proof:
Sometimes gold, maybe gray, sometimes green. But not brown. Mind blown.

Doing a sink of dishes doesn't take that long. But there are SO MANY DISHES. That'll take, like, 30 minutes, right? No. It takes less than 10. Maybe even 5. And that's when the sink is full! Why u procrastinate so much, Jen? Just do the dang dishes! (I seriously have been timing myself. It only takes longer than 5 minutes if I have to hand wash some things.)

I have more time to pray than I think. Seriously. So much time! Even when the kids are crazy! Just get off the dang phone and computer. Turn off the TV. Prayer is one of those funny things - you dedicate time to it and then God helps you do everything else you need to do. (Okay, I totally knew this but God reminded me of it recently.)

NFP is a blessing, not a burden (even though it sometimes feels like the latter). Hilary and I have been messaging so much about NFP lately with her series going on, and it kind of hit me (well, her first, then me) - NFP is supposed to bring us closer to Christ. It feels like the opposite sometimes, but I think a lot of that has to do with how we look at NFP and if we're doing it for the right reasons. It's hard to abstain sometimes, obviously, but it really has helped Logan and me pray together more, and communicate more about whether or not now is a good time to have a baby. I wrote more thoughts on IG if you want to hop on over.

Please tell me I'm not the only weirdo who's having epiphanies in my 30s.
