Spent the day just hanging around the the house, enjoying this BEAUTIFUL weather, & watching Jake tinker around with this & that. And as always, as it seems to be now adays, reflecting on life.
Tomorrow, I head off to help with & attend one of my friend's co-ed bridal shower. I am so excited for Rachel & Brian. Nervous too. As the wedding rapidly approaches & time is disappearing, I have to wonder if it all will get done.
I ask the question, almost instantly, I know the answer. It will. It always does.
I am excited for them. They are amazing people who are faith-believing, God-centered seekers of Him, who are full of hope & promise for the world, for life, for each other. I can't wait to see what the future holds for them.
Reflecting always gets to me in a a sentimental way. It seems it wasn't so long ago, Jake & I were that couple. And now, we blink & 7 years have gone by. So hard to believe. Yet not.
I hear 7 years & I can't help & think that it was my parents at their 7th year were already separated & heading for divorce. I am beyond grateful that I will not repeat their mistakes. I wonder what promise they had for their life?
I slowly close my eyes, draw in deep, reflect & I give thanks.
For my blessings, my husband, my family, my friends. For love. And for Promise.
