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.
