You know when you are little and you play "pretend" and you are a doctor, or a fire fighter, a mom, a dancer, or a princess, a teacher, and the list can just go on and on and on. Then you get older and people start asking what you are going to do when you are done school, and the choices are as many as when you used to play "pretend". The funny thing is though, we think whatever it is we do after school is what we are going to do for the rest of our lives. Do you know what I mean? How dumb is that? I must admit that I am just really starting to realize this, that in any moment certain circumstances can change your whole way of living, your whole way of thinking, and the whole reason we work at all. I am not sure if any of us ever have the perfect job, work with the perfect people, and make the perfect income, having a perfect time, day after day. (If you do, I don't believe you, haha!) I do know that everything that does happen, and everything that does change and the jobs that we do have throughout our life all happen for our own good, and for the greater good that God has planned for each of us.
This week, I have tucked a little token in my heart " Whatever you do, do it for the glory of God" 1 Corintians 10:31. I am glad that He has a plan, and He knows exactly what I am going to be when I grow up....Whenever that is :)
I have always admired those who take time to offer thoughts and advice through blogging. And I have learned so much through their words and have often been encouraged. With three girls, working on the family dairy farm, a passion for youth ministry, I find it difficult to find something just for me. I have had a journal for all of my adult life, and find writing very therapeutic, so why not. I don't know if my words will have an impact on anyone, or teach anyone anything. But I will be satisfied knowing that I am taking some time out for me. This is my great escape.
