We've been getting the rain we needed so much...buckets and buckets. But right now the sun is out. Raindrops sparkle on wet grass. The sky is a wet clear blue.

I've been turning off my computer more, and getting more accomplished around the house. Sewing projects are taking shape under my hands.

I'm young. My life is before me. The options alone make one rich.

I'm old. Time is running out - so much to do in such a short time!

I'm content, sitting here.

I'm not content. There's so many other things I could be doing.

I love my life now - the way it is. The way I'm surrounded by family, the way I can do what I love. The way I have a garden, a kitchen, a sewing machine at my fingertips.

I want the future. I want to do.... ....whatever God has planned for my future.

No, I don't. I want to dig in my heels, and savor the moment.


What a web of contrasts!

But it's good.

ah yes...I've thought those thoughts before. Such is the contrast of life and the various things that come before us.

I think of change, and how sometimes it can seen so exciting and other times seem so scary. Because after all, I am happy where I'm at. But the most important thing is to be content in God's will and be thankful for where He has placed me NOW instead of grumbling and wasting time because there isn't more excitement. After all, life IS exciting - life with God, that is. =-)
