We had the most perfect summer day this past weekend and I could not stop taking pictures of the sky (I told you I was obsessed!) There is nothing better than walks under blue skies, and then relaxing under a big umbrella with a cold drink in hand and friends by your side.
I want to thank you all so, so much for your kind words & encouragement yesterday regarding my rough start to the week. I cannot tell you what that meant to me! Had you asked me on Monday what I was wishing for this week, I would have said guidance. But it hit me early Tuesday morning that I haven’t been left to just figure things out on my own – I am being guided, it’s just not down a road I’d expected. And that’s okay. In fact, it’s better than okay. Because deep down I know that even walking a rocky, dirt road with God is so much better than walking down one I’ve tried to selfishly pave & smooth out on my own.
So, today: I wish, hope, and pray for peace while I wait; for strength to continue moving forward, even if I cannot see the whole path; and for a grateful heart, even on the rough days. It is well with my soul, all, and you know what I say to that: freakin’ hallelujah.
