I have lived an extraordinary life. It hasn’t always been easy and no where near perfect but never the less it has been and is extraordinary. I get so caught up in the day to day norm of cleaning up messes, cooking, taking a shower, teaching the kids and all that regular staff that I so easily forget how blessed I am and what an amazing life I’ve lived.
I have wonderful siblings and extended family. I have wonderful parents who love me. I had a blessed and free upbringing. I was raised in a relaxed home with moral boundaries but freedom to be myself. I’ve had the amazing opportunity to mission in Africa.
I have wonderful friends. I have an awesome husband who loves me and together we have three beautiful children. I had the pleasure of growing them and bringing them into this world. Something I hold very dear to my heart. I have the pleasure of being with them almost every day of our lives. I’m blessed with a beautiful home and a huge farm to reap the benefits of.
I have more than enough food and comfortable clothes. There really isn’t anything else that my heart could possibly want at this point in my life and that is extraordinary. My life has been and is far from perfect. I’ve hard times, ugly times, and sad times, and devastating times. I’ve walked threw situations in life that I was certain would kill me. Through it all He carried me.
I’m not writing this to boast about my life or in anyway to make you feel bad about yours. I’m writing this to possibly shine a deferent light onto your life. So that if you have a perspective problem, as I have had many times, that you might look at your life and see just how wonderful it is or can be. The ugly parts of life don’t define me and could never trump the beauty of my life. Putting God in control of my life was the best thing I could have ever done. He took all my broken pieces and made them into something beautiful.
I can’t wait to see what other extraordinary things God puts in my path. Beautiful things are coming your way too. Just put God at the top of your priorities.
