Here we are, in December. It's the last month of 2019 and a new decade is about to begin. I can't stop thinking about that. It's not only a new year, it's a new decade and a lot can happen in 10 years. I'll save my reflection for a different post, now let's reflect on November. This past month had many highs and lows. Guys, we're just looking for some stability. Things keep changing in life and in the moment of the change I would accept it and be able to move on, but it's in the aftermath of the change where I feel lost. I become angry, I feel disappointed, and I stay frustrated.
It's a process. Change doesn't just happen in one incident, it trickles down to effect other things in life and you have to adjust your expectations and plans. I'm coming out of the tunnel now and feel a lot better, but November was a messy month.
The end of November had the best highlights for me. Thanksgiving Day, of course, was a highly anticipated day and it did not disappoint. My husband and I hosted for the first time and it was a beautiful time. It gave me a peek into the future, that some day my siblings and I will have to do the hosting.
I also learned that making a wish on a wishbone is not as easy as it looks in the movies. My sister and her husband struggled to get a grip on the greasy bone but my brother-in-law's wish just may come true.
I am thankful to have this platform, to write, and to have friends read my writing. I have this great opportunity to write. To write my own stories, to creatively express what's going on inside. I don't want to blow it. I don't want to miss this chance. Going forward, I will give my plans to the Lord so He can direct me on how to get there. I can trust Him.
"The heart of man plans his course, but the Lord establishes his steps."
"May he grant you your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans! May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners! May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!" Psalm 20:4-5
"Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:3-4
