I'm not sure what I'm going to write about. I just know that I haven't posted as much as I'd like lately. Honestly I want to get back to posting every day like I do during NaBloPoMo. I enjoy blogging. Writing my thoughts helps me deal with the emotions that go along with them. Lately, those thoughts and emotions have been all over the place. I lost a friend who was only in his 40s. He was a local pastor, dearly loved by the community. The news was hard and the services were harder. I kept looking over at his widow, another wonderful person. My mind kept putting me in her place, which is a place I pray I never have to be. (I need to depart from this topic right now, understandably.)
I've also been dealing with the emotions that go with having my first child so close to becoming an adult. Trying to grasp that concept while also figuring out how to get her into the college she wants is a little overwhelming. Some budgeting mistakes made in the past might get in the way. She does have a Plan B. Honestly, the Plan B is a close second, just not exactly what she had in mind. A little too close to home for my child who wants to test her wings. This mama wants to help her baby fly!
Tonight's prayer: Dear Lord, please help me see your vision and how to achieve your plan. Life is a journey. You promised love, happiness, and adventure. You never promised it would be easy. Help me to look for the path I am to take, even if it is a little rocky. In Christ's name, Amen.

That was a beautiful post. I will keep your pastor's family in my prayers and your and your daughter as well. Crossing my fingers that Plan A is a "go" :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you! Just to clarify, he was the pastor of a local church, but not the one I attend. We work with their church, however, on VBS. Doesn't make the pain much less, but I thought I'd clarify.ReplyDelete
