But for all the ups and downs the “bridge” year 2023 has brought, it has clarified my main goal. I want things to be well with my soul as I head into this next stage of life. The soul is a hard thing to define, but I see it as the core of who we are. The Bible often calls it our “heart,” the center of our will and being. I believe there is something in each of us that goes beyond our physical being. Financial health and physical health are important, but not as important as our soul’s health. Our physical bodies and the world we live in impact our souls, but they don’t control them. Who we are at our core is much more important than our physical bodies or our financial well-being.
I am fortunate to have Cathy and a spiritual director regularly check in on my soul’s health. How about you? How is it with your soul?
If I can ever pray for you, or if you ever want to email and check in with me about how it is with your soul, feel free. While I may not have the financial and physical strength I dreamed of having 10 years ago, I have more free time now than I did then!
