Right now I’m going through sensory overload. For the first time in a very long time, I see things falling into place in a way that excites me. There are two new opportunities that seem to be availing themselves that will allow me to live my life in a way that I have desired for a very long time. I will not be a millionaire and live permanently on vacation…but there is the potential that I will be able to make a good living, doing what I do well and what I know well, and help an under-served community. If you know me at all, then you’ll know that this makes every atom in my body sing.
I just got back from an amazing vacation. I had the opportunity to take a cruise with my family to Halifax, Nova Scotia and St. John, New Brunswick. The weather was crisp. The scenery was breathtaking. The company was perfect. For me, it is rare to find people with whom I can travel and who I actually miss when I leave them. God blessed me more than I could have or would have asked. To say that I am eternally grateful would be the understatement of the world.
Today I read this quote by Graham Cooke, and it resonated deep within my soul:
“We serve someone who listens to the secret things in our hearts. God doesn’t listen to the image we give out. He doesn’t listen to the things that we say to bolster our confidence or make ourselves look good. He’s so much better than that!”
Chew on that…until next we meet.
