Anyone up for a Game of Tag?

It's Spring and what better time for a game of tag! I've been tagged by Patti from Attitude Changes Everything. I'm to sum up my life in six words. Hmmm. How does one do THAT?

I could fill six books with the story of my life! (not that it's all that interesting....) but hey...I've covered a lot of ground in these 50 some years.

So after much thought - here I go:

God isn't finished with me yet.

I know...not very original. But it's the truth in a nutshell. Throughout my whole entire life - just when I thought I had it figured out and knew what was coming in the next chapter of this wild and crazy life of mine - God goes and re-writes it. And it always seems to be different than the one I had penned in my mind.

Never thought I'd be a widow at 45. Never thought I'd change my last name yet a third time. Never thought after all those years as a stay at home mom - I'd go off and become a teacher in my 40's. Never thought I'd be tripping over toys again after all these years and raising a grandson. But God had other ideas and I just try to go with the flow as much as I can and trust that He has a plan (and that in spite of the obstacles) it's much better than mine.

Not that I don't doubt some days. And not that I'm not often wistful for days gone by - or grieving for those that will never be. (I'm human...remember?) But in the scope of all I know about the God I serve....He doesn't make mistakes. So I'm a work in progress.... How about you?

Okay - so now it's my turn to be "It" and tag some people. I'm tagging Sharon, Heather, Felicia , Kathy and Happy Blog Chick.

Want to play along? Here are the rules, from Patti:

Write your own six word memoir· Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you want· Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere· Tag at least five more blogs with links; and· Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play. That simple!

Great memoir, Lora. It's so true, isn’t it? There have been many times that I have had to trust that God has me in the right place at the right time, doing what I'm meant to be doing. I can't see around the corners of my life, but He can. :-)

Oh, I dropped out of blogland for a couple weeks and just saw this! Sorry! I guess the good (or bad ... or maybe neutral) news is that I did already do this so YAY, I'm not that behind. Here's my memoir:
