Wouldn't take nothing for my journey now...

This is a quote from Maya Angelou, and most days I feel this is very appropriate for my life. I find as I look back even five years that I am a different person. I almost don't even recognize her when I see her in pictures. This could be because I have gained and lost a few pounds in the last few years, or the fact that my hair style change a bit every once in awhile, or it could be that I have grown.

I like to think I have grown, matured, become wiser, and all those other wise adult things to say. I was walking this morning in my favorite little green belt by the kids' school and thinking that my life is really pretty great. Recent events have reminded me that I am truly blessed.

As I talk through the last three weeks, I am amazed at how much you can see God's hands in all that has happened. If this opportunity had presented itself at any other time in the last five years I would have had to turn it down. Perfect timing. God has perfect timing, and He knows where you should be, whether you believe it or not.

No matter where I have been, or where I am going I know that God is always right beside me being the perfect Father that I need Him to be. He is leading me through this journey of life, and I will tell you....I wouldn't take nothing for my journey now. No matter how hard it has been or is going to be in the future. It is my journey, written only for me.
