So much has changed in my life…transformed, really…and right before my very eyes. This summer, I can honestly say that I have let everything go, in terms of control and a tight schedule to maintain.
Don’t get me wrong, there has been carting around to this camp and to that one for most of the summer, but something has been different this time around.
I’ve just come to this point where I’ve stopped doing things from my own strength…I’ve stopped striving and struggling and have learned to just go where God is leading…to allow Him to open my eyes to what He so generously has chosen for me to see.
It’s ridiculous to hear me say it now, but I seriously felt like the key to a successful summer was tied into that whole bucket list idea I wrote about a couple months ago.
What a gift to be a stay-at-home mom…Yes, it’s a lot of work, and yes I have had an overabundance of lessons in the area of patience and wisdom of speech, but man, what a blessing.
I’ve never been so content in my life since having given over my plans and ideas of structure to God…
What He’s done with them in turn, there’s just no words for…
