Thank God for friends who do life with us!
What beautiful friendships I’ve been given with these women who love God, life and one another.
My move to So Cal was such an amazing experience God used in many different ways. As I reflect over those 5 years I’m humbled by how God loved me into a new season of healing, self reflection and most importantly – how he taught me to be happy single!
A few months back I told myself to get busy and blog about all God had done. His grace and life lessons were to be shared in hopes of encouraging others during life’s hard transitions. However, I did not realize my life was about to change in a BIG way. In a flash, and I mean in a flash God orchestrated some events and moved me back to the Bay Area.
Truly, I did not feel I’d ever move back…to live…to start again. It was not in my plan because I had fallen in love with So Cal, my church, the community, new friends and of course the beautiful weather and beaches. It was all so good!
However, what I missed the most about being away from the Bay Area was my precious family. Once again my heart overflows with gratitude for the time God is giving me back to love on the littles, and share in their life in a new way.
As I sit in my new apartment writing this morning there are streams of sunlight peeking in at me, and my heart is touched by God’s gentle reminder of what we all know so well.
“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps”
Through it all God is faithful to fulfill all his promises and bring us what we need to accomplish all he has for us. So many things…whether it be new friends, new surroundings, or seasons of reflection and learning. May we never doubt God’s perfect plan and strategy in bringing his people to their greater purpose.
