Change of Plans

I think that should be the title for my blog. My life is full of changes in my plan.
  • My plan was to live in the same town my whole life. That lasted until I was in 5th grade
  • My plan was to make a career of singing. This plan has changed frequently throughout my life.
  • I thought, when we married, that Kevin was going to be a doctor. 2 months before we graduated from college, he told me he felt called to go to seminary.
  • I thought we'd have a baby when we wanted to. After 3 years of trying with no luck, I finally gave up control.
  • My plan was to have Avery and McKenna go to Abilene for a couple of days so I could work on cleaning/organizing this house. Avery backed out at the last minute.
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Praise God, he has plans that are far better than my own.
  • If I had lived in one town my whole life, I would have missed out on several dear, meaningful relationships.
  • If I had a career in singing, I would have missed out on my true desire, to be a SAHM.
  • If Kevin was a dr. I'd rarely see him, and we'd be in way more debt. I would make a horrible dr.'s wife.
  • If I got pregnant when I wanted to, I wouldn't have finished my masters degree (in voice performance)
  • If Avery went to Abilene, I would have missed some special mother/daughter moments that could have only happened today.
Thanks, God for your perfect plan for each and every day. My life is better because You're in it.
