I'm wading in the sea and reflecting...

But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.

Proverbs 4:18

I always like to reflect on where i've been and where i'm going in life. Somedays my life feels like a cartoon that replays the same story over and over. Pointing your life in a direction that you want to take is not always easy. There are always road blocks on the way. Sometimes i try to look at them as not road blocks but rest stations. .. to ponder and really feel if i am headed in the right direction. Looking around i always see others achieving and arriving at their chosen destination. When you look deeper into their story you will also find support, encouragement and alot of faith. What i am saying it not always easier to become what you want or get what you want when everyone around you is on your side and not trying to change your plans to what theirs are?

My family and i are on this life changing journey with only each for support while my faith grows stronger everyday. We have been renting a home now for about four months. We came to this home by sheer luck especially since this area has very few if any rental homes. It has sustained us for the transition time even though it is cramped, small , old and very dated. I love old character homes and the country. The island has not many character homes being such a young place. I thought i would never experience living in an older charming home again. It is really amazing the way life can somehow find a way to bring to you what you want. Through a new friend in town i was introduced to the most enchanting home. The owners live out of town and were in need of care takers for their beautiful home. My husband and i fit the bill perfectly. It's charming, old and in the country on lots of land. With my husband undertaking a new business this is the perfect place where quiet , solitude is most needed. It things like this that make me think yes you are still on my side... yes we will make out okay

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6
