I can’t believe I’m going to be Forty-Two on Wednesday. I’m so thankful for another year, another opportunity to get it right. I guess God still sees purpose in me .
As I think about this new chapter unfolding before me. I think about how my life has changed so much from my Thirties. I was Thirty-Seven when my father passed away, and my mom came to live with my sister and I. We were traveling and living life like any two single women with no children would. We were ready to take on the world. Then, it all changed in a matter of three hours.
But, fast-forward to almost five years later and I feel more alive now then I did then. I never would’ve imagined being able to say that then. I thought my life, as I know it was over. I felt trapped, and couldn’t see the future in front of me. All I could see was fear, pain, and resentment. Thank goodness that was only False Evidence Appearing Real (FEAR).
