There is always a lesson.
For the last several years I've had this dream. My dream to write an autobiography about my life as a camp kid. I've drafted it out and played around with so many ideas. The one thing that I always go back to is a children's book. Why? - I already told you. I LOVE children's books. If I were to actually write a book about growing up at camp - i'd want to make sure there were plenty of lessons.
Although it would be really fun for me to write a book, my life is actually being written daily. Each day we make choices, we interact with others, we live a story. The only difference between a written story and your life story is in life ... there are no editors. You can't just rip a section of your life out. Trust me - sometimes, I wish I had an editor. I'd LOVE to rip a few pages of my life out. For example: I recently went shopping for some new make up. After an hour of searching for the perfect make up - trying on all the shades etc. (I have very sensitive skin - and can't just use any make up) I found it. It was exactly what I was looking for, and exactly in my price range. Sadly. ... they were sold out. Unwilling to waste any more time I left the store. I got into the car - and burst into tears. Wouldn't THAT be a page of my life that would be nice to tear out.I'm really not sure why I was crying, I just was. Even though it wasn't exactly my finest moment, I was very thankful that my husband just looked at me and began to laugh. I know I was being unreasonable. - He didn't need to remind me.
How about you, have you found yourself brought to tears in the frustration of the little things? - like foundation?! Isn't it nice to know that we have a heavenly father who loves us through it? I don't know about you, but I'm thankful for a God who loves me and forgives me for all my crazy.
I'm also thankful for the precious gift he gave me when he wrote my love story.
