Not my life, though. I'm a planner.
Many years ago, my friend Taylor looked me in the eye and said "What are you going to do the first time God tells you 'no'??"
I guess I just figured, maybe He never would.
But fall is coming. And despite an almost desperate striving, I find that nothing much has changed.
The house has not sold.
The job is the same.
I have no pregnancy news to scrawl on the back of our thanksgiving cards.
I am afraid to think how this trend might apply to homeschooling.
Sometimes, nothing turns out like you plan. Sometimes, God tells us No.
Worn from walking this far
So worn from talking this much
And what we found and what we've seen
As the road curves down
And the lights come up to meet us
Silent for the evening
We enter this town like new born creatures
Those I know, Oh see anew
And the space between us is reduced
For I am human
and you are human too.
