Friendship is a wonderful thing. There are days that no one else knows the right words to say, but a close friend has the perfect words to say.
Life can throw curve balls at any given time in our lives. We should never get too comfortable because life can change in a split second. I have told myself this over and over. I try to instill this into my parenting. I also try to shield my girls from many things as my precious M is a worry wart. This is the child that once went to her piggy bank and brought us all her change to pay for her daddy’s doctor bills. I told you she was precious.
This last year, I got way too comfortable in our own situation. I was growing closer to God, we moved back to our home city, we found a new wonderful church home… life was good. UNTIL a month ago. I was thrown a curve ball. I have shed many tears because of the unknown. I like to plan, I like stability and I like to have an organized budget. All those three things are out the window now, but after crying and laying awake at night… I need to realize that something better is on the horizon. You know how I know this? Being surrounded by wonderful friends. My friends have been there for me, lifted me up, quoted scripture to me and sent me positive messages. These friendships have kept me sane and from losing it altogether. I do not want the girls to know the unknown. I want them to know stability. I want them to enjoy this summer and just be a kid.
There is a lesson in all of this and I am still studying the lesson. I do know, I need more patience. I am working on this daily. I still have so much more room to grow in my relationship with God. I want to serve him more. I want to bless people more with his wonderful Holy Goodness. I want to help lead the girls to accept salvation in her life so they will always have Jesus in their hearts.
Do not get too comfortable in your own life. Look around and see how you can help, how you can give back, how you can serve him more? God is always with us, and we need to always be with him.
Thank you God. Thank you friends. I know you all will help me get through this curve ball.
