Windows and Doors

I feel like it's been forever since I've blogged, but not really. God has been showing me so much these past few weeks, but I'm never near a computer or naptime when it occurs. I must say I am so thankful for that still small voice that speaks to me on a consistent basis. I am even more thankful that I now recognize it.

This weekend I was supposed to be "home sweet home" - in NY, visiting with family and friends. While I made my plans, God directed my steps - down a different path. My flight got cancelled! I must admit, although I was so so SO disappointed, I was actually thankful that the Lord closed the door. God made His will for my weekend crystal clear and NY was not a part of it. I'm also super thankful because it has opened a great window that Mark and I are considering - Christmas in NY. Ahhhh - the possibilities... a white Christmas, the tree at Rockefeller Center, and a huge celebration with family.

In addition to the possibilities ahead, this weekend has panned out to be delightful. Friday night we went downtown as a family. We had dinner on Market Street followed by a stroll through Waterfront Park. I even went wading in the Pineapple Fountain. I started this morning back in the city at Marion Square's Farmers Market. It has been just gorgeous as we head into fall. Our night was topped off with dinner and church with family and friends.

Things don't always go the way we plan, but that's okay. It's much better to leave these things in the hands of the One who knows us best and wants the best for us.

This is why I love you. You always encourage me to have a better attitude about things. I missed my nephew's wedding today. Sad couldn't describe how I was feeling. I honestly had a hard time accepting that. But there's a reason, and I just have to leave it in His hands. Thanks for reminding me.
