I dream BIG. I am always open to changes in my self, how I manage our home and our homeschool. I dream of adopting again. I dream of getting involved in other areas of ministry. I DREAM. Dreaming is good. However it often leaves me re-evaluating my effectiveness as a wife, mother, teacher, Christian, homemaker, friend. Over and over again. And this re-evaluation often casts the illusion that my current life is not as exciting or fulfilling as it could be.
This could not be more wrong.
I am living all the dreams I have ever had for my life. That is the truth.
I wanted to have living, breathing peace with my God. I do.
I wanted to feel free to worship God. I do.
I wanted to be happily married. I am.
I wanted to be a mama. I am.
I wanted to bring a child into our family through adoption. We have.
I wanted my children's hearts to be tender for God. They are.
I wanted to foster parent. We are.
I wanted to feel free to be myself. I do.
So, quite literally, I could NOT ask for more in my life. Dreaming is nice, but not to the extent that the reality of the treasures present in my life is distorted. I am LIVING my dreams. And it is all because of God. God is good. So good.
