I'm sitting here in bed on the eve of my thirtieth birthday, wondering how the heck I got so old, and thinking about lots of big things.
One thought prevails: Thank you, Lord, for this life.
For all that You've blessed me with, which I don't deserve. For choosing me. For allowing me to be Chad's wife and Ellie's mama. For the loved ones you've placed in my life. For giving me this time here on this Earth to love on others and get a glimpse of Your
love for me.
It--this fragile life--is not "Perfect." I'm flawed and broken. There have been disappointments and hardships. I've let others down and screwed up plenty of times. But I wouldn't change it. I know with an utmost certainty that this is the life He has planned for me.
So tonight I am thankful. I am amazed at all HE has done in my life these past ten years. As I close the door to my twenties, I look forward with much anticipation and hope for the future.
