Wednesday Writings

I cannot believe it’s already the last Wednesday in October! This year has really flown by. Y’all, 2022 is literally right around the corner. I have so many things coming up next year. So many adjustments to make.

First, my daughter will be turning 27 on January 27. Planning something big!

Then, my son graduates from high school in May 2022. We are already applying to colleges, signing up for college tours, and ordering graduation paraphernalia. Not sure if I’m ready for this.

Me.. What do I have planned for myself? Umm.. NOTHING. Which makes me kind of nervous because I knew this time was coming; however, I did not expect it to arrive so soon. I need to start planning for life on my own. Honestly, what will that look like?

One thing I know for sure is that over the next several months I have to be intentional about the moments I have with my two. I will try not to smother them, but I hope they are prepared to be loved on like crazy. Yes, I love my babies.

As always, thanks for reading and enjoy your Wednesday!

Hello Sunday

I believe God reveals things in stages. He reveals them when He knows we are equipped and ready to move to the next level. Whether we view the revelations as disappointments or blessings, every reveal or “aha” is always on time, and always meant for our good.

Last night, I had a major revelation that normally, I would have considered a disappointment rather than a blessing. Something that would have had me in tears. Believe me, part of me wanted to be sad, even throw a pity party, but I couldn’t. Subconsciously, I always knew the truth. Yeah.. I always knew. I guess last night God decided it was finally time for me wake up. So He hit me with something I could not deny – the truth in black and white, all spelled out. Honestly, if it had been revealed any sooner – even the day before – I would have had a meltdown.

I’m smiling because God is always on time. When He says it’s time to move, He means – it’s time to move!

So, now what? Now that I know the truth, what will be my next move?

Well, I know that everything I experienced was for a purpose. At this moment, I am not quite sure of what purpose. However, I plan to use what I have learned to guide me through the next part of my journey. As they say, when you know better, you do better.
