Some days I just sit back and wonder how I got to this place. It’s a place I prayed to be. A life I said I would eat peanut butter and jelly to live. Here I am, living this life–sans peanut butter and jelly. God has handcrafted a beautiful life for this little family. All we have had to do is say yes and take some risks. We’ve stepped out in faith a few times and trusted we’d land right where He wanted us.
It hasn’t always been easy, or without tears, but it’s always been worth it. Where He wants us is so much better than anywhere we could dream to be on our own.
“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'” –Jeremiah 29:11
