You see, I've learned that I have a very small capacity to accurately anticipate the full outcome of any situation. What seems perfect and sunny inevitably develops challenges along the way. Sometimes I even find that what I have been wanting fervently really does not bring the outcomes I was looking for. And at times of challenges I have always found that God is big enough and sufficiently trustworthy to consistently bring blessings I could not fathom at the beginning of experience.
My children's great-grandfather H.C. was known for this advice: Enjoy the good times to the fullest, because they don't last. Don't sweat the bad times, because they don't last.
The thing that does last, God's love for us, is just much bigger than any of the individual events along our journey.
So for today I will choose to quit waiting and be profoundly grateful for what is!
