When you haven’t blogged much in months, sometimes that only thing you can do is just jump in….like into the deep end of a cold swimming pool…just get it over with already, you know? And, it occurred to me that the best way to do that today is to join The Gypsy Mama on Five Minute Friday. So here goes:
I’ve been married nine years to a man I never expected to marry. I mean, not when I first knew him anyway. But that was before….
Before all of my expectations changed.
And now, nine years later, I still have expectations, and God still changes them. For one, I live in a place I’ve known my whole life but never expected to come back to. Not overseas and not far away.
For another, I have four (count them, FOUR) children. The girl who used to look at her mother and say, “This is chaos. I will never have this many children.” Yeah, that one…she has FOUR of her very own.
And, do you know what? She’s absolutely thrilled about it. Scared to death, yes, but thrilled.
Because I’ve realized a little something. No matter what my wild imagination can dream up, the one who knows the plans He has for me always has something more in mind.
