As I welcome in this beautiful evening I can't help but reflect on how drastically my life has changed in the past year.
Years ago I dreamed of having a cottage in my little woods where I could create. Months ago I wrote about it, thinking it would take years to come to fruition and then out of the blue, God had a change of plans. What I thought would take years only took a couple of months.
It was a gently reminder of His perfect timing because my vision, while beautiful, so paled in comparison to what He actually had in store for me.
Isn't it funny how that happens? Isn't it funny how no matter how many trials He brings us through, no matter how many God winks & modern day miracles we see Him perform in our lives, if we aren't careful we find ourselves clinging to our mustard seed and loosing heart when it comes to the promises that are so close to our heart.
So what do we do when that happens? Well since I am in the middle of this journey what I have chosen to do is surround myself with 3 of THE most precious friends a girl could ask for.
And music - music just makes everything better!! Hey, my neighbor's haven't complained about me serenading them yet!!
I don't know what is more beautiful, watching the stars come out one by one or watching the light bugs begin their evening dance one little light at a time. Yes, at times I have to remind myself or my friends gently remind me, that if God can make the stars, if He can give a tiny bug the ability to light up the sky, then God has not forgotten about the desires of my heart.
Sometimes I just have to slow down, take a deep breath, look around at the incredible blessings He has right in front of me and trust Him with the rest.
If He could help me turn what was once a plain little building into my own little magical retreat, just think about what He may have in store for me next??!! It’s like waiting for Santa in the middle of the summer!!! Until next time...
