Well, good morning and welcome to Day 5 . . . it is Day 5! Something you hope to do in your life. I really have a great life. I mean "like Christmas every single day" isn't just a catchy slogan, it is really my life. I had a not so great life before and now it's just amazing! So sitting around and hoping about what I am going to do in my life, really just doesn't apply to me, at least I don't think it does.
. . . and my best friend just came in and brought me a birthday present! (When I was writing this.)
See what I mean? I seriously have turned over all that to Jesus and He's running the show. Sometimes I am disappointed for a moment when I think that I am missing out on something, but He always shows me that He has something better for my life.
Sure there are things I want to do, but they do not make me LONG to do them and I do not have a sense of urgency in any of them. I am coming down to the finish line of the last kid (4 for me . . .8 for Santa) and just feeling it winding down is making me relax!
On a bigger scale, I want to travel, visit grand-kids, and live but nothing really specific. AND if none of these things ever happens for me . . . I'm still good. That's the crazy part. If you never see your grand-kids again how could you be good? You don't know what is going to happen in the future, and if that is the life God has layed out for me, I'm willing to follow that life, no matter what.
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11New International Version (NIV)
