This experience called life...

7.19.2008

Have you ever noticed that there is always a destination in your mind? You are always counting down the days until "blank". Well, stop. Stop waiting and wishing for that "blank" to be here. The whole time Andrew and I were dating, I couldn't wait to be engaged. Once we were engaged, I couldn't wait to be married. And now I'm wishing I could have my wedding day back. Not to say that I don't love being married, because I do. But what about the right now. Right now I am married to a wonderful man; right now I have the sweetest puppy; right now I live in a wonderful (somewhat furnished) apartment; right now God is teaching Andrew and I how to be a husband and wife. God has brought Andrew and I to this place together. For 2 decades we were growing up by ourselves, and now it's time to grow up together. I am excited for the right now. I have no idea what all the future holds, but I do know that today I am happy, blessed and healthy. Enjoy what you have RIGHT NOW because you have no idea what can happen tomorrow or the day after that. Take a moment to tell your friends and your family that you love them. Take sometime to remember all that God has done and has yet to do. The time we have on this earth is brief. Sit back, enjoy the ride, and know that God is in control.

I saw the Lord always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will live in hope,
because you will not abandon me to the grave,
nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
You have made known to me the paths of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence.
(Acts 2 25-27)
