Be glad of life, because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars. ~Henry Van Dyke
I’ll admit it. I’m suffering from a bad case of “restless life syndrome” right now. Though my days are full of perfectly lovely God-crafted moments, there are some rough patches that look a lot like our backyard – scratchy and prickly and uncomfortable. I’m praying for rain. I know it’s coming – it always does. But right now, it’s dry. And I’m dry.
Don’t allow the flirtations of someone else’s beautiful life to catch your eye. Don’t dabble in the affections of another’s journey. If you chase after a different story, you’ll stumble and scatter every word of your own. Live your life fully. Grab that pen and write. Let the Lord breathe the words into your heart. Let the Lord craft the most beautiful sentences out of those words. Let your God-given, everyday life be the best story you tell. (inspired by Proverbs 6)
