Imagine (5 Minute Friday)
Sometimes I imagine how different my life would be if my dreams of 10 years ago were reality.
I would be married to my first love…teaching kindergarten at the same school at which I started…with two kids (a boy and a girl) who were around two years apart in age…these were the things I thought my future held.
Present reality? Only two of those things are actually here. My first love and my boy. Nothing else remotely matches. My sweet husband and I have had to fight tooth and nail for our marriage. My son is here without his big sister. I am working at a different school doing a different job.
And you know what? I can’t say that I wouldn’t change anything…that would be dishonest. But I’m here. I’m in one piece…there are big scars, but God has closed the gaping wounds.
As I face even more potential changes, I do so with a sort of reckless lack of worry. A God who has brought me through a life very far from what I imagined will carry me across the finish line one day.“God has not been trying an experiment on my faith or love in order to find out their quality. He knew it already. It was I who didn’t.” C.S. Lewis
